On Tuesday, March 21, the men’s tennis team had a match against Paradise Valley. The Agua Fria men’s tennis defeated Paradise Valley, 5-4.
As I asked Xavier Montero what they are doing to keep a winning streak, he simply said: “We’re just having fun. We like to compete against each other at practice so when it comes to games it’s like practice to us.”
On Tuesday, March 7, The Agua Fria men’s tennis team had a match against Deer Valley and defeated them 5-4.
Tennis is a mental game, so it is all on you. There are no refs involved. If you cannot determine whether the ball was in or out, you have to come to an agreement, if there is no agreement you have to replay the point before that.
Having a strategy might help in a game or match and it might not, as I asked Xavier Montero what his strategy was to win a match, he responded with: “Stay calm and humble and play the same whether I’m up 5-0 or down 0-5.” Deer Valley has a “solid team” and gave our the men “good matches,” Montero said.
Our men’s tennis team is now on a 5-game winning streak.
The men’s tennis team has dominated every team they have faced this season. They lost their first game to Estrella Foothills 3-6, but the men’s team has bounced back and now they are on a 5-game winning streak after their game against paradise valley.
