I'll go for the draw.
I have similar battles with a friend - my doubles partner in club tennis. Couldn't beat him for 2 years but then started beating him last year and I'm ahead something like 6-2 over the last few months. Alas I went down in the most recent meeting last week, 2-6 6-3 7-6. Always close matches and usually 3 sets.
You're my inspiration then Alex.
