After being very apprehensive about this match, I knew that I wanted to make it to Thursday (at the very least), and would do anything I could to get the win today. I was ready to play through any pain and play my game.
I did an extensive warmup in a field, and then prepped the leg as best as I could. It felt ok, and I tried to forget all about it.
It was quite windy today, so I knew it would be extra important to be focused and play high percentage tennis. My opponent had a big serve and forehand, so I wanted to be ready to play defense and get lots of shots in the court. I started off not serving very well for a couple of games but despite that fact, fought back to win them. It continued like that as I took the match in a very game-by-game manner. As a result, I was winning all of them, even on his serve and when we had tight 30-30 points.
