World Champion Again, Really?
2/7/2011 10:09:49 AM
 
I couldn't believe that I was holding the Zwack 2010 World Championship trophy and posing next to two gorgeous trophy girls. That was awesome. 2nd title, could've lost any of my matches, so everything just seemed to go my way. Had a lot of fun at the tournament. I hope to keep it fun and not let several HATERS spoil it. I guess I can't help that there are so many petty, jealous, spiteful jerks in the world.

Anyway, it's been a little stressful being on top. Each day, I gain so much more respect(I don't know how much more I can have) for Danny and Tim. Everyone is gunning for you, trying to devise ways to beat you, and now with the internet, everyone in the world can study my game and break it down. The hunter has become the hunted. I will try to enjoy for as long as I can, but I'm sure my days are numbered. I still have zero practice time, so I'm not able to stay sharp on defense.

Brian came out in January as the #3 player in the world, and challenged me for my #1 ranking. He was in the best AH shape that I've seen him in. He ripped thru me the first set and then took me to the last point in the second set. I was fortunate to squeak out that set and then settled in to beat him 4-1, but easily could've been down 0-2. He is getting real close and with a few more adjustments, he is knocking on the door.
