[Poll #1454178]Those three sports are the ones in current contention to get scribbled out first. We'll see. I have quite a long list to choose from. <3
The focus is actually going to be more romantic than sports-oriented, if I ever manage to get to it. (Try not to groan; it's more boys love.)

Oddly enough, I can't remember what the last match I mentioned was, so instead I'll pick up from Friday afternoon, where we played somewhat of a tournament. Ah, well, all of the competitors there were quite good. I played singles that day instead of doubles, which was a bit unexpected but fine nonetheless. I won the first match, but lost the second. I don't have the stamina up yet, since I've played nothing but doubles so far this season, which requires much less movement overall.

recuperating by watching movies!

Post Script -- Today alone I watched four movies. I still have a stack of other ones to go through, too. Gosh, I love the library! :D

Ah, tired~
We had another match today, and it was against a team that we (collectively) lost miserably to last year. This year, it was much closer, and we won a few of the matches. Although my partner and I didn't win our match, it was very close -- 4-6, 6-7 (tiebreak was 5-7). I was a bit disappointed that we just missed out on taking them to a tiebreak for the third set, but I was pleased with the way we played overall! I had some amazing serves, as did my partner, and between the lot of us, there were some fantastic rallies.

I was also very glad to see that the girls we played were honest. (When we were in the tiebreaker, I accidentally called out the wrong score {which would have benefited the other team} but the girls corrected me; on the sidelines, I heard a couple of their teammates say 'you shouldn't have said that!') This team often is chock full of, well, cheaters. We had to get line judges on two courts anyway (a couple of other matches could have used judges too), because the girls would continually call out balls that were good.

We've got another game tomorrow, and a tournament on Friday! I think the coach will be keeping my partner and I together, too. Whatever we're doing is working. :3


Post Script -- I kind of want to French braid my hair... but can't be bothered right now. .___.

So today was our first official tennis match of the season. I played as first doubles (basically the top two-player team), and felt that things went alright. It is only the very beginning of the season, and man, today I had some smokers. My serve was pretty wicked (especially because the other team occasionally made obviously false calls, which just made me angry enough to hit the ball harder... not good for them by any means).
Next match is on Wednesday. (Away, unfortunately.) We also have an away match on Friday, and on Saturday we have a quad, which is when four schools play each other at the same time. I'll probably be mentioning how tennis goes on and off, because really, who wants to hear about tennistennistennis all the time?
Final Score: 3-6 / 6-3 / 4-10 [Instead of a third set, which we would invariably have won, we did a tie breaker. UGH. Hate those.]

Anyway, tomorrow is the first day of school. I'm a little irritated because it isn't even a proper full day, so we're essentially just going in to sit and listen to rules we already know about for approximately five hours. Pointless. Afterwards, the tennis team is going out for 'lunch,' though! <3
I have no idea where we're going, haha. And then we're coming back to practice... :D

On an entirely different note, I keep getting quirky romance ideas. I'm not complaining -- it's refreshing to have to think about what I want to write.

*is bubbly*

(This shot isn't from the winning match, but I still like it (very much so). I'm a little disappointed that his final moment of triumph was not over Nadal, as the two are always put on a good match and are both incredible competitors, but I am still ridiculously happy for Federer. This made my evening. \o/)
here is the deepest secret nobody knows...
