Tennis star Emily Appleton on lost luggage and positives in Germany


Doing your job without work clothes or your tool would be tough for people to deal with.
Imagine if you are a tennis player, you are overseas for a championship and you head for the airport luggage conveyor belt just to find out your entire luggage is lacking…
Sky Sports Scholar Emily Appleton shows all…
My last trip of the summer was to Braunschweig and also Leipzig in Germany for two weeks of competition. I was very excited because I would return on competing and also the clay in a nation that I’m fond of!
For to Leipzig once I came and I needed to take two flights my two luggage hadn’t!
London airports don’t allow tennis rackets to be taken as hand luggage so I was without all my tennis sneakers, of my rackets. All I had were the clothes I had been wearing in my back.
The situation has been far from perfect but I tried not to panic – yet – since they were sure the bags will arrive.
The following morning (the day of the first match!) My bags were still nowhere to be seen.
At the right time of my first game I still wore the clothes from the day before and had no gear – !
I was kindly gave her next set of sneakers by my doubles partner and I borrowed a racket.
We played well together and considering each of the factors and it being the first time we’d met each other I had been really happy with what occurred and we’d beaten a pair that was German.
A day later my luggage had not showed up and it was time to get my first round singles match.
I faced a Hungarian who had expertise on the clay and she was a very tough opponent. We
Started the match that I won 7-6 4-6 7-5 without my gear. I was so happy to win my very first round at the W25 and particularly considering the conditions.
My luggage didn’t even appear in time to the next day because of my second round singles and also the quarter-finals of this doubles.
In the singles I lost very closely to the winner and actually challenged her to the end.
Into the group which proceeded to win the tournament , despite having game points, we dropped 16-14 at the final set tiebreaker in the doubles.
They had been tough losses to confront but I was very delighted with how the week had gone along with progress was made – !
It always sucks to lose but to drop to the tournament’s winner is much more rewarding and it showed that I am close.
Fortunately my bag showed up and so I managed to play another week with my gear.
In which I’ll focus on my fitness I am back in England to get a three-week training cube center. I’m really excited to continue as I’m seeing improvements in my sport and mindset working.
