Megan’s Memoirs #3: All About Attitude  -- July 15, 2013

Hi everyone,

Tennis has a funny way of keeping you honest. Last time I wrote the Caps were riding high with a 3-0 record on the season. Now we are batting .500 with a 3-3 record.

On Friday (7/12), we played the Boston Lobsters at home. All of us went into the match feeling confident...maybe overly so. Mark and I kicked it off with a close win in mixed. Taylor, who had incurred a minor injury from the match before, finished the match with a more severe injury.

After women's singles we were all tied up at 9-9. It was up to Mardy to give a lead, however, during the match he tweaked his groin and called for Ryan Sweeting to step in, down a break, and 3-4 in the set. I must say that is a tough position to be thrown into - down a break with your opponent serving. Ryan handled it like a champ. He stepped in cold but played some courageous tennis. He is kind of my hero. I wish I had the guts to do what he had done. We lost the match 23-19.

I take a team loss much harder than any loss on tour. You are always wondering how could I have done better? How could I have gotten one more game? You think, "If I had just converted those two break points it could have been 23-21 instead of 21-19." "If I could have gotten just one more game would that have boosted the team's moral?"

Coach B has said several times that tennis is not about winning, it is about losing. How do you bounce back after a loss? How good is your short term memory? I could not agree more. Those are two tools that could make or break your career. Moulton-Levy

As a team we have kept a great attitude despite the losses. Post Lobsters loss Coach B, his band, and the Sacramento Soul Sisters went to Buffalo Wild Wings for a jam session in front of the Sac Caps fans and staff. Post Washington Kastles loss we had a dance contest with kids who were in the stands and the Kastles players. After losing to the Texas Wild last night, we signed autographs side by side.

I told you I would give you a little taste of fire and here it goes...
 
Due to injury we are down two players - Mr. Fish and Miss Townsend but we are hungry for another victory. We will do everything we can to make it happen tonight against the Orange County Breakers.

Until next time...

Megan
