Yesterday I played the #1 seed in qualifying to get into the main draw. He is from Australia, is currently ranked about 1000 and is only 17 years old. Though he is young, he has a lot more experience than I do playing international tournaments and he is getting top notch coaching and has hit with the likes of Tipsarevic and Sharapova at the Australian Open.
Though I have been having some issues with my knee and some feet blisters at the moment, I was definitely feeling ready to compete hard. Right off the bat, the umpire told me my shirt’s logo is too big (ITF rule) as well as the one in my bag. The referee comes out and gives me a slight scare, but they let it slide this time.
