Three league matches in and three loses. I haven't even bagged a set yet. It's quite disappointing especially when I seem to be a better player than the three I've faced, from a technique and power perspective. I'm just too aggressive and pay the price for it with unforced errors.
I won't change my style though for attack is the foundational principle to my game. I'd sooner go down in flames trying to leather the life out of the ball than cowardly knocking it back so as to allow my opponent to occupy the initiative.
I'm not particularly strong, or fast, but the thing I loved about squash was that it was possible to win games without these qualities, at least amongst the crap players, of which there were plenty. This contrasts with tennis or badminton, say. It's particularly enjoyable watching your opponent crash into walls, for example.
It rained so heavily when I walked home today, I got seriously creeped out. It felt like hail. My raincoat got soaked all the way through, which is supposed not to happen. It's expensive for crissake. There will be floods all over the area. Glad my house is on the top of a hill - which happens to be named after the terrible winds that regularly show up... Might be a long night.
No... not very close to here, as far as I know. But there's a rally-racetrack for cars in a hillside right around the corner. They made that around two years ago I think. Lots of people, lots of noise every other saturday.
