played tennis with chrismaverick and max1975 yesterday. I ended up beating Mav 2 sets to 1 after Max decided he'd had enough of our rotating singles match. I think the final score was 2-1-6, 1-1-6, 6-1-4, 2-6-3(retired), 6-4.
playing in the heat of a thousand suns sure is different than playing in a nice cool rain. for one thing, the balls actually bounce. the whole heat exhaustion and dehydration thing kind of sucks, though. i definitely didn't have enough fluids before playing; I had like 3/4 of a bottle of Code Red between 10:30 and 2 at work, and nothing else all day until we started playing. Probably that had something to do with my slow start.
