"We will take it"

The Warriors went off to Glenbard North in search of their first win of the season.The play started off quite ragged as our opponents went out to leads at 1 singles, 3 singles, 4 singles, and 1st doubles. "These guys are trying to test my patience this year." We came out a bit flat but regrouped well and a couple of 5-2 deficits turned into first set victories. Sophmore Tejas Satpalkar, at three singles traded service holds until finally breaking through at 5-5. "He has impressed me with his calm play for his first year on the varsity." Holding his serve and then quickly winning a 6-1 second set gave WV their first point of the night. Seniors Ryan Huff and Shivansh Ahuja came in with the next point at 3rd doubles as they won quickly 1 and 2. "Their efforts over the summer have shown and are taking advantage of playing time." Senior Huey Nguyen backed up his good play at Lake Park with a 1 and 3 victory using all court play in his win."Huey has been moving well this year and seems much more confident in his strokes." At 4th singles, Andrew Bridgeman put himself in a hole down 5-2 in the first set but then calmed the tension by taking the first set 7-5 winning 5 games in a row. "Andrew is experimenting with hitting through the ball much faster and will make some unforced errors. He always knows he can return to consisitant tennis if need be." Porter Holyoak and Nikhil Sridhar found themselves in a quick 5-2 hole also before settling down and moving with confidence to win the first set 7-5. "Confidence seems to be a problem with this group and it is going to take time to work this in." The duo finished the second set 6-1 winning in the style of tennis they should be playing. At 2 doubles Humza Nazir and Louis Hara went out fast to a 6-3 first set win and then got into the same problems that plagued our team at Lake Park. We do not finish matches well. Losing the second set to a fisty North team we regrouped and had a very smooth 6-1 third set. "I like the way the two boys finished the match but we need to condense our errors earlier." The match that made no sense was at 1 singles where returning state qualifier Anthony Nguyen ran into a first set disaster losing to rival Sean Boland 6-1. To Anthony's tennis abilities he regrouped and won 6-0 in the second set. These scores look weird whenever coaches see them in the newspaper. The fourth set saw Boland take a 3-1 lead until finally Nguyen believed in himself and won 5 of the next 6 games to win the third set 6-4. "Anthony needs to take his time with points and not be in such a hurry. Boland is a tough match due to his constant ball in play theory and flat groundstrokes with not much spin. I was proud of Anthonys court presence and hope he learns from this match." This powered the Warriors to a 7-0 win over conference foe Glenbard North. Wins also came at 4th doubles from Neel Kamatgi and Faaris Afridi 0 and 3 along with a win at 5th doubles where Gowtom Mannam and Rocky Pula overwhelmed their opponents 10-1. The Warriors will take their talents to Aurora West for a rain make up today. Go Warriors.
