As we're walking on the court he asks me how I want to play, up or back. I looked at him and said "the regular way--regular doubles formation." Then he starts to have another conversation about needing to know what I liked to play better the net or groundstrokes. Oh dear. So I told him, "I like playing the net." But that I typically like to see how the first couple of points go before I decide to rush the net.
We FINALLY started to play and I proved how good my strokes were and that I could play net. My partner was shocked, again and gasped a "wow" when I hit a winner. And when the lady on our opponents' team started acing him with her serves he couldn't believe a woman could play that well.
Guess what homes, we can, and we do. And you're not that good of a player. Plus, you're not that good of a guy either. Team captain, I ask of you please schedule me to play with anyone else on the team. Anyone else.
