Well, if I had any doubts where I stood in the 3.5 tennis heirarchy, they were answered in my last two matches. On Saturday, I lost in two sets at Willow Pass Park in my senior doubles league, 6-2, 6-1. Then on Sunday, I played my first match of the 3.5 singles league and fell at Rudgear Park to Paul, 6-0, 6-4. Losing just 6-4 might sound somewhat impressive, but while driving home I realized that Paul, a really nice guy, was probably just screwing around that second set and let me win a few games. In any case, what I suspected I now know is true: I don't have 3.5 game yet. I have to do some major work on my swing and my timing so I can play competitively in the 3.5 world.
