A played against a guy who would wait until JUST before serving to say the score and then he would quickly toss and serve. Also, he would mumble the score so quietly that I could hardly hear him. I asked him several times to speak louder and say the score a little earlier, but he wouldn't. The problem I have with this, is that if I disagree with the score, I have no time to think about it or stop him. Also, it gives me no time to strategize how to approach the next point if I don't know the score. Is this a form of cheating or just an annoyance? I got the feeling he was doing it on purpose. Another annoying thing he was doing, was while I was serving...if my first serve was out, he would go and fetch the ball or move slowly to get it out of the way, thereby delaying my second serve. I would be ready to serve again and he would be retrieving the ball.
