Josh’s match at Amy Yee
Tonight we played the Amy Yee 5.0 men’s team. As the matches progressed, we found ourselves the last match on at 7-5, 0-4. Our singles won and #2 doubles lost in a third set. We battled back to 3-4, then 3-5, then 4-5, and lost the second set 4-6.
We played the 3rd set tiebreak very strong, battling for every point. On match point #1 I missed a short angle backhand pass wide. On match point #2 Niko crushed a forehand return and the net player hit a short angle volley. I was able to chase it down to hit a one handed backhand around the net post to win the match!
What a fun way to end the night! This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to play Amy Yee Tennis Center. After watching a great close 4.5 women’s match, watching Jack B winning 22-20 in a 3rd set tiebreaker, and now AYTC is becoming a fun place to be.
