If there are people talking during your match in the stands are you allowed to

A) ask them to stop
B) ask the offical to ask them to stop

Best thing is to ask the official. If there isn't an official around, try asking the people that are making the noise.

It depends. They are only human, and humans talk. How do you think pros put up with all of the noise? I think it is best if you just lear to play around the noise. This will help your mental game a ton!

If it's low level talking you shouldn't even be hearing it. If it's obnoxious, then why wouldn't you let them know they're causing a problem?

Just ask them to hold it down. Something like "hey, do you-all mind if we play some tennis?" or "can you guy hold it down? I'm trying to put my opponent to sleep"

first

you have to be able to distinguish between talking and heckling

if they're doing it purposefully to cause disruption then go ahead...

if they're just talking to each other and it's just slightly audible... unless you're in the grandstands of a grandslam event or masters cup... you'd just be better off ignoring it..

if your that weak mentally and a couple of people talking actually catches your attention, Then of course get a line judge this is your right!! Cause if your ability to focus on the ball and the court your playing on is that bad that talking distracts you then you will have a nervous breakdown if you attempt Davis cup or maybe even a heart attack ,


But really if they are talking beyond normal levels then ask them to tone it down and then go get a line judge if needed

it depends really.. i mean at a tournament, there's bound to be lots of noise anyway.. so lets say you're on court 1, main court, or whatever it is and folks are speaking above the noise level.. then ya, just go ahead and ask 'em to keep it down.. you're there to play tennis, not to listen to others yap while you're playing especially since it's paid for.. time and place, time and place

If it's heckling tell them to stop, but other then that you shouldn't complain. I play next to the high way with cars going 50 and firetruck and police sirens going off, and it doesn't bother me all to much
