played again with beststephi against max1975 and chrismaverick. We won, 6-7 (3-7), 6-1, 6-4. Again our net game was devastating. mav and max started out strong, taking a 5-2 lead in the first set before their mental weakness asserted itself and they dropped 4 games in a row. They managed to win a game to get into the tiebreaker, where steph and i made too many mistakes. After that, we played very well, and we should have won the last set 6-2 but i served poorly.
Clearly if we're going to go back to playing 5-set matches, steph and i need to work on our tiebreak skills, so we don't manage to lose a set. Either that or we can go back to a lighted court. I think I prefer just winning in straight sets; it's easier that way.
