It was a matter of momentum in todayâ€™s second round doubles match against the #2 seeded team of Corso and Long from NY.
In the first set, we started by breaking their serve; but gave it right back. And we stayed on serve until we were serving at 3-4 and got broken. They held to take the first set 6-3.
In the second set, our good movement and offensive play gave us the Mo and we jumped out to a 5-0 lead! With them serving, we had a set point; but didnâ€™t convert it; so they held. And then they broke us. We did manage to break them and take the second set 6-2.
But I think the momentum had started to switch at the end of the second set; so after a five minute+ break, Mr. Mo decided to change sides on us for good. We were never in the third set; and they steam-rolled us 6-1.
Very frustrating. (I have just iced my leg and it is time to go in the hot tub).
