squeaking ahead

Day 12 of 365 in the “Marathon of the Dope” . . .

.....................................................................................................

Well, I managed to win (with my partner, of course) our tennis match last night but it was no massacre. We pulled a 6-1, 4-6 (9-7 tiebreaker) to squeak ahead and win. How the scoring works is if you split sets you play a tiebreaker for the match. Hence the scores and the win.

Not a great showing, but not too bad either. Gives me 7 wins 3 loses for the entire season. I’ll take that. Now we are heading into the quarterfinal next week in third place out of 7 I think.

We were playing under a bubble on clay courts (not my favourite) and about half way through our match it started to rain cats and dogs (not literally). The roar on the plastic bubble was almost deafening and pretty cool. Not good for concentration though - gee, was that where we started to falter?

And Roger makes it 5 in a row. So now he had 5 Wimbledon and 5 US Opens in a row. That’s pretty darn great - maybe the best ever, and he still isn’t done yet. Way to go Rog!

You can probably tell by the tone today that my mental facilities are under construction. I don’t function the best on six hours of sleep.

So today’s post was all about tennis. I play late again tonight, so tomorrow’s post will be even less coherent.

I wonder how long I can go with only six hours of sleep a night?

365 days?

No, not that again!
