Double Faulted

December 10, 2008 at 6:57 PM 1 comment

In tennis, to double fault is to mess up on two consecutive serves.

I double faulted the tennis tryouts, this year’s and last year’s. This year was rather embarrassing.

I had a 35.8974358% success ration. That’s 28 out of 78 points. At least half of those 50 points that I lost were from double faults.

If I sucked that bad I wouldn’t have tried out and let the school earn interest on that $80 transportation fee that I had paid as part of clearance.

The thing with me is that I’m inconsistent. Some days, I’d play really well – like the Sunday before the last, as some people can testify. Then the next time, possibly even the next day, I’d play like crap – like today, as some people can also testify. I practically double faulted my way through the tryouts, despite having practiced my serving the day before and serving most of the first serves with second serves, which are usually supposed to make it in, not that the firsts aren’t supposed to. I’d serve, and it’d go wide. I’d serve again, and it’d go wide, in the other direction. Change sides and repeat.

Well, the first five games are over, and you have to win six out of nine to move on to round two. I’m already out, but I’ve got four left to play tomorrow and I’m not going to give any free wins. Who knows, tomorrow my serve might return. I’m going to give it detention for being too late.
