I played tennis in high school. My dad's advise was to stay quiet and not talk to my opponent. He said if I talked to them, I became to chummy and lost my competitive edge. I think with age and maturity that competitive edge has blossomed. I've been back into tennis for about 2 months now and have played on a USTA team in the evenings. I quickly learned that on the tennis courts you're nothing without a
cute outfit bag tag (or 10). The bag tag is the mark of a winner.
Well chickadees, I'm sportin' a bag tag!!! Our team won our division and last night we played the finals to earn a place at the state championship. For those you of that are familiar with tennis and the scoring, Peggy and I played line 2. We won the first set 7-5, the second set went to a tie breaker-we lost 6-7, then we played a 10 point tie breaker to decide the game. We won the tie breaker 10-2, winning the match! All 3 lines were awesome giving our team the win.
Y'all, I'm feeling it today! Those ladies ran my fanny all over that court...it was a blast!! I have a LONG way to go and a lot to learn but am having so much fun. Here is a picture of the ladies from our team that played last night (there are 14 of us total and only 6 play each night) including our team member and great friend, Alicia , that cheered us on through it all.
And since I'm high on our win, I'm thinking a sale is in order. Now, through the end of the month, tennis towels are 10% off!
