I'm back from the USTA Georgia State Mixed Doubles Championship. My team didn't win our division and thus didn't advance to the play-off round, but we had a wonderful four days in Augusta--good times on the courts and also just hanging out. For my first time on the big stage for Mixed, I played pretty well. My partner did too. We were 2-1 in Augusta with a really tough and hard fought loss on our second day. Unfortunately, with my rating getting bumped up to 3.5, this is our last time playing with each other for a little bit (we are a 7.0 team, so partners have to equal to 7.0; he's a 4.0 player. We can't play together until we move up to 8.0).
Our team is already getting ready for the Fall season--recruiting players and discussing strategy to make us even better so that we Win the City and get back to State with a Win next time!
Of course, part of my strategy is to work to make my tennis game better and better and most certainly to get in even better shape through clean eating and strength and cardio training.
For today, it's rest for Shay Shay. I'm exhausted!
