Top Spin beats his 'personal Nadal'

Regular readers will remember that I recently wrote about how most tennis players, at all levels of the game, have their own personal Nadal: the guy who beats you no matter how much you work on your shots or mix up your game plan.

I'm delighted to report that after 10 attempts, two tie breaks, and a choked match point, yesterday I finally beat my personal Nadal (the hitting pro at the local tennis place). Happy Days!

Pleased to say that I resisted the temptation to fall to the floor and roll in the (artificial) clay like the real Nadal.
