I can completely relate to Mel M.'s article, "Match Point." I also play tennis and have played that intense, close, high-pressured match. The match you practice for and look forward to, and before you know it you're right there about to hit your first serve. "The feelings of nerves and anxiety" is exactly how I would explain it too. That anticipated feeling is almost an adrenaline rush. Also, that feeling of accomplishment after a close match is a huge relief. Thank you Mel, for writing this article, I enjoyed it very much.
