We started the match. My back loosened up. I was ready. My only concern was my serve, which had constantly failed me in situations like this. I broke him. He broke me. I broke him. He broke me. I was serving well, but he was returning better. And I was getting frustrated. I was going for too many big shots instead of just playing a steady baseline game. Finally he held. I lost the first set 6-3. I tried to be more steady, but still felt like he was outhitting me. We went to 4-4 with neither one of us holding.
I was out of the main draw, but not the tournament. That is because of the back draw. So I headed out to see who I would face in the first round of the back draw. The match had started the same time as mine, but they were in the middle of the second set. They would split. And they would go to 6-4 in the third. I watched and spoke to a man who was also watching. He knew why I was watching. He had seen me play, perhaps doing some scouting. The player who he was with would lose in 3 hour 45 minutes.
After losing the first set 6-0, I was determined to get to every ball. But that is where my lack of experience on clay would hurt me. I ran down a ball to my right and turned back around to try to run down the next shot. I tried to dive for the ball on my backhand. I missed it but slipped on the line as I tried to change directions. I went sliding across the lines, the nails holding down the lines ripping the skin along the right side of my body. Half my body was a mess of red clay and blood. I also split my pants.
