I played my first round match here at Granby Challenger Canada today. I went down 6-7 3-6. I played well in the start and was up in the first set 5-3 with a set point. I got a little nervous and lost that opportunity. I felt I gained so much experience for playing a player who has been as high as 60 last October in the ATP rankings. His experience really showed and I felt I did my best and will take a lot away from this event. I want to thank Grant Doyle who was here for me as a Coach and Mentor and gave me so much encouragement and support. All the boys here have been great and I have loved the experience. Hope there is many more to come. 🙂 cheers Blake
