From 24-27 January, I went to Jakarta for SEASAC tennis. It was an irreplaceable experience for me which taught me perseverance. I am very glad I was able to join the team for my final year.
The tournament taught me preseverance because, as the third single, I had to be calm and reflective to work for every point, ever match. Since I was not as experienced playing matches, I realised that I have far more weaknesses in comparison to other singles players. To negate my weakness affecting my play, I watched other amazing players play to learn their strategies.
One of the challenges I faced was how I couldn’t perform my best at the matches. I was nervous and pressured, not allowing me to do my best. Also they were all away games so it was difficult for me to get used to the conditions. Yet, I will need to get used to these as I develop as a player. So I hope I will be able to continue playing tennis and tackle the areas need for improvement in the future.
Overall, this season was a fruitful one – I not only improved my tennis skills but also made good teammates. Furthermore, I am grateful for the effort I have had put into this season despite my academic schedule.
