    I dont think this thread is funny at all. I find this thread quite disturbing.

    The OP is the exact kinda person I can see who follows a little old lady home after she "obviously" cuts him off and intends on giving her a piece of his mind. After he jumps out of his car and startling her hes so proud that when questioning her about her lane change she offers no explanation to his satisfaction.

    It's not possible to NOT get into a thread that has the quality that this one does!

    Technically, that's my post. :)

    *But I'm not claiming it. I'm claiming most of it (the parts that are legible - the one's I wrote).

    That whole second paragraph is a doozy.

    When are you two getting married? If there's a net there, can I jump over it and object?

    That's like telling Weird Al Yankovic that he can't get credit for a great song because it's someone else's.

    I'm already married. So, I'm sure someone else would object before you had the chance.

    You're a poor judge of character. I'd obviously have a gun out while I was walking up to her car.

    Those little old ladies think they can rule the road!

    tennis is a game of class, honor, and diplomacy. Only the most scholarly of gentlemen shall play this activity called tennis. There shall be no jumping of any nature as this would be considered unsportsmanlike and "rude" in this activity for the elites. should my eyes happen to fall upon such a monstrosity of a gentleman "jumping over the net", I'd faint and wither away from the rudeness.

    Na, JMac would just claim that he saw chalkdust, nevermind that it's a hard court!

    Obviously cheating is wrong, and it's frustrating when your opponents cheat. Although I personally think it happens far less than (some) people think it does.

    At any rate, if you feel you are being cheated, your only recourse is to ask your opponents "are you sure?". By asking this multiple times, and your tone of voice, you are basically telling your opponents that you think they are cheating you on calls. This may shame them into making better calls, not. But either way you are ultimately at their mercy.

    "Tonight was my girlfriend and I's final mixed match"?? If you're going to violate rules and jump to the other side of the court, let's at least be literate. When in doubt about multiple subjects, eliminate one >> "Tonight was I's final mixed match." Sound good? Didn't think so >> "tonight was my girlfriend and my final mixed match." Correct, but akwardness is best handled by rewriting >> "Tonight was the final mixed match for my girlfriend and me." That's better!!

    You know you have lost your argument when sureshs starts agreeing with you. He is the ultimate barometer of bad judgement.

    Samarai said it best

    Nail on the head there.

    And Jay, I'm pretty sure I've played you and your girlfriend before (in a very tough 3-set semi-final). Sorry you're taking so much heat here. You were a tough, but cordial oppoenent then, and I'm sure you're youthful zeal was misplaced here, but you've taken responsibility and realized you were wrong.

    We all know that calls are missed on occassion. We all hope that it happens without malice, or ill-intent. Though, there remains the fact that cheaters exist. Beating them at their own game is one approach, but it'll leave as bad a taste as losing to them will. Question the call, then move on and get it back on the next one (or two.)

    Hope you've learned from this despite all the mud-slinging.

    Net jumping aside, I think this idea is part of the problem here. There's actually no such thing as "just asking someone if they're being honest." The act of asking carries an accusation with it, and you can expect people to respond as though they were being directly accused.

    No. She went off to play in college and left me in the dust of her killer backhand!

    ROFL I definitely remember her blowing a few of those backhands by me. Hope she does well in college.

    An opponent jumping over the net after a contentious call would cause me to end the match immediately. You can't do that. Period.

    OP, I understand how you feel, but you just can't do that. The other side of the court belongs to them, and some people would be very threatened by that kind of action. Honestly, if you did that to me, my first take would be that you were probably coming over to throw down. The concept of "space" is well-defined in tennis, and it is that way for a reason. Live with the fact that you are going to get screwed over now and then. There is nothing you can do about it. Grace while dealing with an injustice that you cannot fix is one of the characteristics you should strive for.

    What a cool thread! I mean, it has everything. Outsized athletic prowess, confrontation, people making up quotes for other people, and a tablespoon of Woodrow. What's not to like?

    OP, if you ever jump over the net in a match against me, you had better be Dead Sexy up close. Only a truly gorgeous male specimen is allowed to do that sort of thing.

    I can't find any modern pictures of women jumping over the net. Were they more adventurous in the old days?

    Jumping over the net is too intense. Without chair ump's you can question a call but if your opponents stands by it, end of conversation.
