Next Year the US OPEN?

October 24, 2002 04:59 PM

My partner, Audra and I decided to enroll in our first doubles match. We had just joined USTA and wanted to enjoy lots of playing time. Unfortunately, we didn't do so well!! The first match was with some pretty aggressive ladies who had NO on court personalities. The second match was with some very nice ladies who helped us out and gave us some pointers. The final match was with a couple of ladies a lot like us - inexperienced! With a little more time oncourt together--- I think we could have taken them.

Oh well.. I won the singles tournament and my partner won the runner up trophy. We had a blast doing it for our very first time. Wish we could play more often. Who knows.. I could be US Open champion at age 45... couldn't I??????
