How nervous are you before each match?

I don’t feel that I get nerves before a match, and I play it as normal as I normally play. Hmmmm … The other day Feb 11, returning to the Westside tennis club I was bit jumpy. As soon as I sat down, I suddenly felt my knees were going.
Oh sugar, I forgot to bring balls: home team supplies balls.
Think quick. Ha, no worry. I have extra cans in the truck.
Quickly I raced to the car and got an armful of balls.
Oh, sugar. No, we weren’t the home team.
Anxiety. Not me. Ya right.
Paul perhaps sensed something or he never had confident in me, rearranged the line up, pairing me with him in the third. It wasn’t a close match. I’ve been playing lopsided matches except the first one when it was decided in the third set tie break .. but we got a 3:0 lead to start off .. so, it wasn’t a tight match as one would like to have.
