As I walked inside I met up with my teammates telling lies to each other on how we're going to win. The ref called us to our courts then blew the whistle it was on. One serve, two serve, three serve the game ended up being 25-15 wow that was terrible I thought hoping in the next three games the scores would be closer. The next game we played the best team and got our butts handed It was so bad. I can’t even remember the score but I don't recall us making over five points.
The sun's beating down on me and sweats dripping down my face. I set up for a throw down at second, the pitcher starts her wind up and I take two steps closer to second. Our catcher set up for the outside pitch, but misses her spot and hits down the middle. The hitter loads up and swings hitting the ball to our second baseman. The play totally changes at that point three seconds of time.
It was a cool day in the middle of spring. The trees were blowing, the ground was soft and wet and it was a great day to be playing golf at Mahoney Golf Course. This was our last tournament of the season as a team. I started out putting and chipping on the putting green. I remember I could tell I was going to have a great game because of how close I was putting the ball to the hole.
It is the morning before all of the Frisco Independent School District tennis teams face off to see who will be the best in singles and doubles. The weather is nice and it will quickly rise to the mid-90s. I cannot wait to get to school to see my team mates and play my final match for Wakeland High School Tennis team. I have been preparing for this match for seven years, without realizing the full affects.
Saturday seemed to drag on but finally it was show time. Walking into the arena was the most nerve-wracking moment of my life; the bleachers were packed and there were people with big cameras everywhere. It felt as though I was famous! As the announcer called my name the only thing I could think about was making a solid run. My run for the first round was good considering my heart was about to beat out of my chest.
This defeat would be one of the reasons that led the Creekside tennis team placing outside of the top three at the county tournament. My doubles partner and I had just had won the toughest match we had ever played in the previous round of the tournament. We defeated our opponents in a thrilling comeback after
I notice one of my teammates Sebastian scoring and the whole team starts celebrating. As five more minutes pass and finally remember hearing the final whistle and I see everyone celebrating as we have won the championship. As we were done celebrating and packing our stuff we went in a room where I could see the big
During the entire match I had no idea what was happening. I didn’t know which side of the scoreboard was mine, so I didn’t know if I was winning or losing. Since we were in a tournament, there were numerous whistles that were going off during my match. During the match, it was very loud, which made it hard to hear my coach. I also didn’t have any idea what period we were in.
If you make a date to play, be punctual. When walking to a court, proceed quietly outside the fence to the gate that is closest to the court to which your are going. Wait until the game in progress on the adjacent court is over, and then walk quickly past the court to your court. In tournament situations, wait until the game has ended before entering a court beside a game.
The match started out pretty good. My opponent was about my size; 5’7” 138 pounds. He was strong, my heart was pounding, i was sweating bullets, I couldn’t hear a thing. The match was 0-0 going into the second period. I was okay with where I was.
I never thought it was possible to experience awful anxiety, utter joy, gut wrenching heartbreak, immense excitement, and total confusion in a period of two to three hours until I joined my high school’s golf team. Although many may see golf as a boring sport (if they view it as a sport at all), hitting that little white ball into a tiny hole hundreds of yards away has taught me a lot about life. From learning how to accept the inevitable to constantly searching for ways to improve, I have done many things in the world of golf that have helped me live my life to the fullest. Self-reliance is arguably one of the most important skills one attain in life. When you make a mistake in golf, there is no one to help you recover from that mistake
Surya Karthik wins the US open.” The last set comes up and my nervous level is 100%. I know that Federer wants the trophy just as how much I do, but I have to find a way to want it more. Fortunately, I am ahead of Federer, the score is 5-6. It is match point and Federer serves the ball, I manage to hit the ball and Federer barely lobs the ball to me and I smash the ball and he misses it.
Towards the end of the night we were down 7 points, there were two matches left. Me and my senior friend A.C. I started my match against a junior or senior, I don’t recall his grade. Anyways, the match went all three rounds, with a score of 6 to 6 going into an overtime period. Midway into overtime, I caught him in my favorite move, the head and arm, and pinned with 20 seconds left in the match.
