2nd set Sunday match, down 2-5 my opponent "gave" me game 8, which fired me up inside. He felt secure enough to overhit 4 straight returns fast, long and out. I then broke him next game, held my serve and went on to win 7-6 (5) for first outdoor set win this season. No biggie, but nice to get that one under my belt. Been working on a new put away shot. Low percent of success so far but staying with it...need to learn when to go on offense with it and to play defensive retriever until the right time...small adjustment made on serve...

Completed the third tennis session at EHRC for my daughter Kelly taught by Rogers and Murphy tennis. I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied by her progress. She was a quick learner, learning the fundamentals of forehand, backhand, serve and net volley with foot work. We discussed her starting sessions for HS girls over the next few months. The rest is up to her and hopefully she see's the fun in the game and want to develop more (the strategies and variety of strokes). Would honestly, if not selfishly, be overjoyed if she tries out for her high school team!
