What do you like LESS when playing tennis?
« on: July 18, 2012, 01:31:07 PM »
Hello!

Here is a funny question:

What do you like LESS when you are playing tennis?

What bothers you the most when you are playing tennis?

I never had a problem with players grunting until I started playing tennis. Then I realised how frakking irritating it is.  :ranting:

Poor line calls, stalling, and other unsportsmanlike play from opponents.
Excessive noise falls under that category as well.

Time wasting, deliberately bouncing tennis balls, wiping faces with towels after every point... things like that
"Sometimes it feels like you're not on a tennis court, the amount of noise you guys produce and for us it's a great feeling. It's a pleasure playing in front of you. It's my great privilege to be standing here in front of one of the greatest players ever, Rod Laver. "

i dislike opponents who rush to their serve point as if they have to take a bathroom break the next minute........

i dislike shrieking opponents........

that's it really........

Main problems when playing is making good line calls, expecially on tight scorelines.
There's always some arguements on that front.
 
The other thing is keeping score, after an hour or so in the hot sun no one seems to remember the last point and correct score for some reason.

lets see,
-kids playing idiotic music just around the corner.
-grunting is always disgusting, even worse when someone is pretending.
-many stop volleys in the net, while I could have just volleyed safely to win a point.
-double faults, ohhh I just hate them!!
