So the results are in and 27% of you were right that Jeromi and I would win in straight sets. The first four games remained on serve and actually David and Jacques held rather easily while Jeromi and I struggled to hold serve. At 2-2 we were able to break David and held onto the break until Jeromi served it out at 5-4 but I believe we had 2 or 3 set points before we closed that out.
Jacques and David then held serve and immediately broke me to go up 2-0 in the 2nd set (I'll be honest I envisioned a 3rd set at that moment) Then Jeromi and I picked it up a bit and won the next 6 games for a final of 6-4, 6-2.
They are a good doubles team but I think we were just able to hold a little easier in the 2nd set which allowed use to take some risks.
Highlight of the night: Jacques hits a good serve down the middle to me and I hit a inside out forehand that clips the line and Jacques somehow curls a backhand around the post that just misses multiple water bottles and possibly a small child down the street and it somehow landed on the outside of the line.
Good stuff, I hope we can generate even more great challenge matches like this one.
Nice match guys!!!
