Also, my jump serve is steadily improving. Maguy has helped me in practices to systematically fix one thing at a time. First, she fixed how I hold my serving hand. Second, she fixed how I hold the ball. Next, she fixed the height of my toss. Then, she fixed how far I stand back from the end line and the size of my steps. Finally, how high my hand is at the point of contact. Now, for the first time in my life (and thanks entirely to Maguy) I can confidently say that I have a killer jump serve. Woohoo!
AVOIR MARRE DE - to be sick/tired of
j'ai marre de
tu as marre de
il/elle a marre de
noux avons marre de
vous avez marre de
ils/elles ont marre de
RIVALISER - to compete
So, the phrase would've been:
"J'ai marre de perdre. Je sais qu'on puisse rivaliser avec ces équipes là."
I'm more fired up than ever to WIN and I believe our team is right around the corner from really performing. This week, I'm taking Maguy's advice and tapering my double days. All this down time is freeing me up to rest, write, and chomp at the bit... I'm excited to have a great practice tonight and blow our rivals out of the water this weekend!
