This past weekend in USTA Doubles one of our opponenets persisted in calling out the score when I was about to serve. My habit is to call out the score as I begin my approach to the baseline before I begin my motion. This became very irritating.....Has anyone been peeved at this???
Same thing created an ugly mess for me 2 years ago. I actually got so irritated that I walked up to the net and warned him that I would lose my cool if he said one more word while the ball was in my hand, needless to say the match ended early and I had a sore fist.
Only time I have ever flipped out on a tennis court.
