Max won 2 sets, I won 1. Technically, I guess that means he won, but since I won the last set and then we stopped playing, I can't help but feel that I won and Max and Mav both retired.
I suppose it would be more fair to say that Max won 1 match, 2 sets to 0 to 0, and I won a 1 set match.
Anyway, I found that having a good racket actually makes a big difference; my serve was a lost faster and more accurate than with my old, cheap racket, and although the grip started to hurt my hand after a while, I put an overgrip wrap on it in the middle of the last set that I think allowed me to hold on and win in a tiebreak. Maybe keeping it on will help me to not lose so many games in early sets, too
