Before, During, and After...
The bet: If I win a best of 5 series I get a studio in Belgium and an apartment for 6 months! If I lose, I have to give Tim, my gallerist in Belgium, a painted head sculpture and a photograph.
Before the match, all were confident.
Once we started I realized very quickly that I was in deep trouble. Tim is very fast, and anything I returned even a few inches over the net was enough for him to SMASH back violently with lightning speed.
Afterward, I hang my head in defeat. He beat me in straight sets.
First game: 21 to 7
Second game: 21 to 9
Third game: 21 to 8
My only points were basically his mistakes!
