I played my first league match today with my new partner Andrea - and after opting to serve I promptly and quickly lost my service game. And then they held. Down 0-2, Andrea stayed calm and positive. She didn't pick on me. She didn't get angry. She didn't sigh. She didn't coach. She didn't blame. She didn't tighten up. She continued to enjoy the game and be complimentary. And you know what? Because she stayed happy - I started playing better!!! We ended up winning 6-2 6-2 against some great opponents from Manhattan Beach Country Club!
