    I hardly sit down during a match...I drink something standing up.

    I never sit down really. I just get to the other side of the court asap.

    I sit down only after the set is over.

    Nope. Hardly sit down at all while playing sets.

    Quite a few years back, I played an early morning (7:30) match in a tournament. Mind you, I'm not a morning person at all and don't usually play well, or even function well at all (mentally or physically). I was jumping rope on every single changeover in an attempt to wake up my brain/body.

    I'm with you. If I played on red clay and the points were all 20+ shot rallies, I probably would. On hardcourts matches are a breeze compared to my practices.

    I would have liked to have seen your opponent's expression. Did you win?

    I believe that I lost in the next round to an Open player from Germany. The tournament desk gave me a hard time (in jest) about the rope skipping. It might have appeared that I was insulting my opponent with my "wake up" effort.

    I only sit after the 2nd set and then only if I am changing my socks - Otherwise I simply kneel to get a drink and go to my next position.

    I never sit down after the first game (that isn't allowed anyway, but wouldn't if I could). I rarely sit down during in-set change-overs unless I'm getting pounded and need a new strategy.

    If I lose a set I'll generally sit and think about what to do better. If I win the set I just keep going.
