    I like to mess with new doubles partners with league teams. Say things like "I hit triple digit serves, but they go all over the place."

    LOL, all that and you guys were the closest match of the day. I played J**** a couple times (in singles). He's right. He is a much better singles player.

    It was wierd ... He hever came to the net so to help his serve I tried to be really aggressive at the net. Los of poaching, fake poaches ... generally lots of movement. However, at least half the time when I called a poach he forgot to cover the other side of the court.

    However, it still seemed to work. We lost 7-6, 7-5 but I was really happy with my play. The german guy from the other team was clearly a real good player, but I thought I out played him in this match.

    My partner said:" We are going to lob these guys to death" He then proceeded to hit almost every thing to the other team's net man. I felt as if I was a target in a shooting gallery.

    This brings back memories of high school. In doubles my partner and I used to mess with our opponents. When we would come to the net to decide serve/side we would always be ending a fake conversation.

    "...so then I dumped the body in the river....hey guys M or W?"

    "...its not cheating though because its my dog...."

    "...weird thing is he was a better kisser than my girlfriend..."

    Almost every time our opponents were visibly distracted. :)

    "It was in but I like to mess with his head."

    whispered to me by the 14 y.o. son of dad who just crushed a dtl winner.

    That scared me much more when I was refereeing (impromptu) girl's college basketball and the pregnant one, was the one taken (literally) down to the floor (by hard fauls) most often! I wanted to throw HER out of the game and tried to talk some sense into her, when protecting her with my whistle was kinda ineffective....That girl was fearless, but nuts (even for a basketball star)! Beautiful too and just a couple of years older then me...

    Not scary as such but years ago I played a lot of mixed doubles with a girl I was dating, she could be quite nasty about our opponents. Best was that biatch needs to wear a bra (she didn't actually need to!).
