Its when you need to be really focus.
Hopefully, you stayed cool, you didn't play the mcenroe card !

Struggled much more than on the Sand court above. Was 15:40 behind in the last game.

@malko & turrican3: Do you play the same way or differently?

Haha, yeah that would've been very frustrating if I had lost at that point.

Per se, yes.
Then, most of the time, you have a slightly better cross service than I have, meaning that you have more space for your next cross return

Nice John ! !!!

Looks like "tonight IS a good night !" as I finally got it !
Come' on baby !

6-0
6-0
6-0

"Malkette" is the Queen Of " Bâle's tournament " !
and is joining "Turricannette3" on the podium .

With the exception of the second set, at 1-0, where the duo in front of me had the advantage thrice, and where I scared myself a lot before finally winning the set (the mind is very important in sport ), it was a dream game for me.
Many short exchanges and an almost ideal placement every time .



We are waiting you on the podium "Johnette4p"

One match per day (or more if you have time) and I am sure you will defeat the duo played by the computer.
(look at "the beating" I got in my first play : 6-0, 6-1, 7-6. Nothing to be proud of after winning against the computer 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 in single's match on all surfaces . But after a week : tadaaaa )

That'd work. Unfortunately I'll have little time next week so I guess I'm going to just settle for 183 points.

Restarted multiple times until I finally won the first game. But after that lost everything:



Not worthy of my own Uber Challenge. Heading back to Azeroth - that feels like vacation.

You have to change the way you play to beat them.
2 vs 1 is different, you have to adapt your game.

You're right but I'm both too lazy to figure out what works and I also don't think the remaining time is sufficient to get good enough to beat them 6-0 6-0 6-0.

Just a small tip "@Laura Robson" : Try it in the middle
(and no reference to the fact that there is one woman and two men in the game )
