Yes, that was the story when I played one of our top juniors in my second match back from a competitive break. I will improve, I know, but that does not take the frustration out of not even being competitive in the least.

As a lesson to all players and something that I emphasize continually with my students, was the lack of time I had to even think about anything. My thought processes were like an old 286 pc trying to run a Vista system - it just ain't gonna happen.

Apparently, no sooner had I hit the ball, than a winner was put away. I felt like I should have put on my slippers, lit my pipe and sat comfortably in my rocking chair just to fill in the time until I became totally useless.

But that is the great thing about sport - there is always next time! As I speak, I am planning my next glorious victory against the young bloke. My only problem is trying to find the heavies to batter the kid to a pulp just before we next play.

A safer way will be to lose about 5 or 6 kilos, train a little more pick up my skills. Put a bit of pressure on and who knows what happens.

I was just watching a documentary on the box about the iceberg that sunk the Titanic. Although icebergs look very peaceful as they float along, they are apparently full of tension -ready to unleash incredibly powerful forces at any minute. Forces that would make the bombs going off in troubled parts of the world look like a tom thumb on cracker night.

Put a little pressure on that ice cold opponent who seems to be cruising and who knows what it will do for global warming!

Yes. I was being outplayed the other night, but my opponents mistake rate was much higher. Even though his shots were putting me under pressure, and my returns were therefor not spectacular, he would make enough basic mistakes to distrupt his game.

The mistakes compounded and I ended up winning, largely by keeping the ball in play and off the tin.

Sometimes you just need to give people the opportunity to beat themselves.
