I know you’re thinking … suck? … that’s a bit harsh. Well that’s because you didn’t see me out there today. For instance, today I was able to study in detail the likelihood of winning a point when double faulting. Try as I might I kept on coming back to the statistical norm of 0%. Were I a statistician maybe this would have brought some redeeming satisfaction but alas my contribution back to this art of probability brought me nothing a desire to smash the ball.
And smash I did. I smashed it into the net. I smashed it beyond the baseline. I even smashed my racket on the court once. As you can see my summary of “I suck” may seem harsh, oversimplified, and reactive but I think you’ll find I have evidence to support my claim.
I’m playing again tomorrow and I hope to develop a more positive outlook over these next 24 hours. In fact I’ll go out on a limb and predict that tomorrow I’ll positively suck. :^)
