I played a match yesterday in which my partner hit me in the back once and hit my racquet once when she was serving. There was also a near miss when she was serving from the ad court and her serve out wide (an ace!) whizzed so close to my right ear that it sounded like a mosquito. I played a set a few months back when I hit my partner in the back three times when I served. And I once had a mixed partner knock my racquet completely out of my hand. Here's the question: If the server hits his partner, whose fault is it and what is the correct "adjustment"? When I hit my partner, I kind of assume it is my fault because my serve obviously didn't go where I intended it to go. She gives me a look, I apologize, and on we go. When my partner hit me yesterday, I got the impression she was annoyed that I was in her way. I considered changing my position, but I was reluctant to move back because the opponents were cranking the ball at me with their returns and I needed to be close to put away the volley. I did try to crouch down as much as my geriatric knees would allow. I have another teammate who has a big flat first serve, and she insists that her partner stand in the doubles alley for her first serve so she doesn't hit them. So, what's the deal?
