Tennis

USTA Season is getting ready to start for the 2010 season. I am going to be the captain again this year. Our team number is 6004574392. We have to have 8 players by Jan 10th, 2010. My tennis goal for 2010 is to become ranked in the Top 5 in the PNW for the Men’s 45’s and to do well and win at least 2 of the USTA PNW tournaments and to do well in the Washington State Open.

I will post all of my USTA 4.5 Team results and my tennis tournaments for the year on my blog as well.

1/21/2010: Won my first round at the NW Washington Tennis Tourney, 62-2-6-6-4.
32 Brian Tinsley d. Steve McRae 6-2; 2-6; 6-4
1/22/2010: Lost my second round to Doug Blick,
16 Doug Blik d. Brian Tinsley 6-3; 6-4* I was serving at 4-2 to go up 5-2 in the second and I know for a fact, I would have beat him in the 3rd. I had 3 or 4 ad points. Thinking about a racket change. But, also feel pretty good that I got one round at least and am going to start training/practicing for the Oregon State Senior mens indoor (March 25-28th). My goal is to be in the top 8 of the PNW rankings for Men’s 45’s.
