The Impossible Shot

May 13, 2003 01:45 PM

During a recent tournament, rushed the net to volley in the middle of a match against my toughest opponent. When I hit the ball, she lobbed it back over my head to the baseline. I knew that it would be an impossible shot, but I did what most players do in that situation... I ran after it anyway in a blind attempt to get it over.

To my surprise (and most importantly, my opponent's), my shot went in! She was so shocked that I ended up winning the point. Unfortunately, in the end I lost the very close match, but that point was interesting and will always stick in the back of my mind!
