Some of that feel in the early game may be the inevitable result of expert experience. In a game that forces one to start from ground zero every time, you have to bear with some drudgery to work your way to where things get difficult for you. A beginner would likely not feel the same, as they need the time to learn and figure out what is going on, something the early levels do particularly well. I imagine Serena Williams having lost her top seed position by being out of tennis for awhile had some of the same feeling having to work her way back up to the top ranks.
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
