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!
