Stress

They had met at the net. Her lefthanded backhand

Was as hard to read as her emotional needs.

Off-court, she was cool and slightly hesitant.

She had affected a noticeable limp that misled

Her competition as to her agility and ability

To be ruthless. Tiny rivulets of angst could be

Seen between games. She spent her quota of

Aggression on court leaving her demur and

Mostly charming for the other games in her life.

Well-timed mention of lefthanded backhand - my good friend from college that is visiting has a wicked lefthanded game (especially at the net) . We're having great doubles fun. She's "Cool" on an off the court.

Like

"...leaving her demur and / Mostly charming for the other games in her life." Love it, Glen.
