Texas Exit

DAY TWO
2nd Round Qualifiers: Wednesday 7th April

My Opponent: Tenille Swartz
Country: South Africa
World Ranking: No.66
Result: Lost 3-1; 11/4 11/3 10/12 11/3

It wasn’t the greatest start that i wanted. My length shot kept clipping the side wall and bouncing in the middle of the court (maybe because i was trying to hit it too hard), which set the ball for her to play her sweet drop shot.

The third game went a little better, more patient, didn’t try too many fancy things, and kept it error free. The thing is, you need to work a little bit befor you can try stuff because she is quick. So when she’s fresh, you need to be more accurate with your shots. Most rallies that were long were in my favour.

Fourth game, needed a bit more of the patience. I let her get ahead too quickly. That needs to be my next focus – that scoreboard should not race too far out of my reach too quickly.

Next is Cayman Island on Sunday. Watch this space!!!
