The third set was much like the second and we were tied at 4 all. Serving at 4-5, I missed a game point by hitting a put away smash into the net. Then my racquet grip unraveled and so did my game as I lost the set. In the fourth set, I switched to my backup racquet but it did not help as I threw in some double faults.
Being the warrior you described, Eric sensed his opportunity and forced
me into long rallies as I grew more tired. He took the fourth
easily. I could not believe I was a few points from winning in 3
sets and was now tied at 2 sets all. In the fifth, Eric
offered to regrip my original rasquet with his overgrip. I was
then able to mount a mini comeback from 0-3 down before we were
kicked off the court.
