played a rain-soaked match with chrismaverick; I won, 2-6, 7-5, 6-2.
Not much to say about it; it's hard to judge how much I've improved, considering the conditions. It took me a while to adjust to the wetness, but I played ok after I did. Hit quite a few good first serves, but it's hard to judge whether the lack of bounce from a water-logged ball had more to do with their success than me actually hitting them particularly well. On the other hand, a lot of my bad shots could have been caused by mav's shots staying really low. All in all, it was probably good practice for if I ever play on clay, anyway. I was a bit disappointed with little mental errors, like missing on an overhead attempt right at the net when mav had slipped and fallen; if I waited for a bounce it was an easy point. I also went for shots at the lines when I could have easily dropped the ball right over the net; almost every time I tried that they landed out. Oh well, I still managed to win and it was fun.
Plus, a cool rain is a lot nicer to play in than blistering sun.
