My First Tennis Match In 2018

Hi Accented family.

How stoked was I when I finally could play after two and a half months of waiting. It was good seeing everyone there. I wasn’t going to give it all I got on court, but every now and then I overdid it before pulling back. It was all good though. 

Man, was I rusty. I had picked up a few pounds, but I wasn’t going to sit back and let my partner run around for all the balls. I was ready to give it all I got. 

Before everyone starts to play, we usually get called to play in a certain level. I usually gets put in the highest competitive level. I was hoping they’d put me in the second highest level. Anyway, they put me with the highest level guys so I thought that this meant I had to play my best as always once again. 

To make a long story short, I played my usual high level competitive self, but soon found out that it wouldn’t be helpful to do so as I got pummeled really good. I lost every match. I must admit I got frustrated, but I had to remind myself that I haven’t been playing for over two and a half months. They’ve been playing every week so it made sense everyone would be a step up. 

When all was said and done, we all had a good laugh. I certainly had fun despite the fact that I threw my raquet a couple times out of frustration. 

One thing’s for sure I love this game and before you know it, I’ll be back at my best again.

Oh, and they're sad, because they are all losers" Quinton is a South African native who literally is a "Jack of all Trades". Born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1977 during Apartheid. His ADHD as a child has helped him to early on in his life figure out how to think and do things the unconventional way without him knowing it was actually a very unusual way. He had a fairly good childhood upbringing according to himself. He couldn't understand why he wasn't suppose to interact with "white" people during that time, but that didn't deter him from asking questions and being inquisitive. He had built bikes so he could do stunts, learned how to juggle, taught himself to be a gymnast, studied the tennis pro's by meticulously copying every single move they made, played amateur soccer and held the highest record among his friends for tapping a football over a thousand times in one take, co founded an a Capella group called Young Ambition where he was the lead singer, was a stand up comedian for 6 months, annoyed his teachers at school, was the life of the party everywhere he went, toured the U.S, got married to an American, had two daughters, got divorced after 11 years and currently an online entrepreneur. Oh, he also created online YouTube music, calls himself "The Accented Guy" and taught himself to play the keyboards, became a skilled jazz musician, because his voice started giving in. He's played with well known bands all over town and in other states. He experimented using Jazz to incorporate it into heavy metal, rock, European progressive classical music etc. and also studied languages whereby his goal is to speak Spanish fluently by the end of 2017
