Casual Backhand

I had an ex that thought I should get more exercise.  (In all fairness, back then she was right.)  I always wanted to try tennis so I got a racket and started playing.  In her infinite wisdom, she pointed out that I probably shouldn't have picked a sport that required more than one person.  (There's no pleasing some people.)  I couldn't convince her to play with me, but her roommate and I used to sneak in a set or two during the week.  Plus we'd play a full game at 6:00 AM on Sundays.  I don't remember ever being so dehydrated or sunburned in my life.

My serve is nothing great, but I've developed a pretty good backhand.  I just like the rush of running insanely back and forth, trying to keep the volley going.

But I hate deuce.  Especially for the 15th time in one game.

I epically suck at tennis - hand-eye-racket coordination is not my thing!
