Sometimes you’ll find an opponent who are a whiner either when He/she win or lose during or after the match. In my case the whiner usually about or say something (while in the court): 1. Ohh, too humid it is hard for me to play (yet he playing anyway). 2. Ahhh, the court is too dusty (we both know that before we play) 3. Ahhh, so much noise in here, I cannot focus (yet he won the game) 4. Ahh, I sweating too much, my palm too sweaty (yet he is still playing ) 5. I cannot control the ball, my string is too lose (Why didn’t you restring it before we play) 6. The sun too bright, it is so distracting for me (duh, the day is sunny, wear sunglasses) 7. Maan, it is way too hot (or too cold) for me (yet he won’t quit playing) 8. Sorry, I am not playing well, I did not get enough sleep last night ( hey, you can always cancel and reschedule the match, don’t waste my time) 9. The ball is not bouncy!! (we both know, they were fresh from the can, and they were not flat, he just hates my slice shots) 10. This is too windy (We know it before we play, and we agreed to play) 11. Uhhh, I am so tired (We just finished warm up, and still want to play) Etc. Usually, I just Ignore them with silence, since I know If I disagree with them it will be an ugly match instead of enjoying tennis. BTW, in my younger days, once, I smacked a whiner with my racket, since he was so annoying. Well, those days are over now. Tennis teaches me about discipline and sportsmanship. When I am in the court, it means I am ready to play responsibly and do my best as much as possible. If I am not ready or fit to play then I won’t play. Do you have any story with those whiner in the court to share, and how do you cope with those kind of players.
