Getting into a new racket

I've been threatening to buy a new racket for like years and years. Finally I did it. Put a Prince More Attack in my hand at SportMart and it just felt right so I bought it then and there. I was just tired of not having a new racket -- my old one's all beat to hell -- so I just went and did it. I haven't even hit with it yet -- it's being strung as we speak. I didn't demo the thing beforehand, so who knows if I even like it. Well, I'd better like it -- it's going to be my weapon of choice for the next few years.

Some good news to report

Hey, you can't lose them all, right? I finally got my first victory of my singles league today, beating Tony 6-3, 6-4. He came into the match 0-5 just like me, so someone was going to get their first win of the season. Fortunately, it was me. I didn't play particularly well but I guess I kept the ball in play better than he did and I made a couple of nice defensive plays that somehow became winners. I know I can play lots better, but man, does it feel good to finally get a W. The match also qualifies me to play in the year-end tournament.
