A good day.

A singles tennis match in the morning, it was really hot, and I won the first set 6-4, then something weird happened and I lost the second 6-0. Third set tie breaker, I almost never lose in tie breakers, like sprints on bikes, it’s kind of my thing, but today my opponent went up 9-2, 8 match points. With Pat Benatar’s “It’s A Little Too Little Too Late” playing in my head, I really wanted to make it respectable. I won a point, then two, again, all he has to do is win ONE point and he wins the match…. at one point he hit a drop shot, I got to it but could only softly pop it over and he hit a cross shot and all I could do was dive for it, but got enough racket on it for a passing shot. That broke his spirit and I came back to win 11-9 and take the match.The day ended with a bike ride.
