It was good to have a day's break to recuperate tired muscles. First set was the same old story, a lead of 5-2 squandered to be 5-5. Somehow willed myself to win the next two games to take the set. The set was weird because we used new tennis balls. For the past few games, we had been using tennis balls made by IKEA, that bounced more than normal tennis balls. A return to Dunlops made the court and our shots seem so much slower and less bouncy and took some time to get adjusted to.
In the second set, to counter the slow feeling of the tennis balls, I decided to hit out and lots of my shots landed in. I hit a lot of winners in the set to win it quite easily 6-1.
