in dire need of training.

It’s 3 more days until our UAAP match against DLSU and I have yet to swing my tennis racket the whole week. Eeep! If we win this match, we go into the finals with a twice-to-beat advantage. If we lose, then we go into the finals two wins short of the championship. We’d have to beat DLSU another two times if we don’t win this Sunday. Aiyeee! I don’t know if I should be excited or nervous. If coach fancies putting me on the line-up this weekend, I don’t know if I’ll be able to really deliver. I don’t know if I’ll be able to ride on the confidence of the last two weeks.

We’ve been at the bottom of the standings for so long that finally getting to contend for the title seems surreal. We’re supposed to be the underdogs, and underdogs are supposed to leave the pressure to the ones defending their crown, but when the bone is dangling right in front of your nose, not being able to grab it is frustrating. Pity Tantalus who couldn’t drink the water nor take the fruits on the branches. It’d be sad if we don’t get this. Sad, but not the end of the world. Either way, we’re still in the game. The finals will be a whole other story.
