Played a club mixed social tournament with my wife last weekend, and had an encounter I've not experienced before! The one set fun tournament was open to all levels and gave us a chance to play together. Faced another pair in the opening round I had only occasionally seen around the club. Twice as I shapped to hit a drop volley off a weak return and as he took a first step to charge the net to retrieve the shot, I stiffened my wrist and lobbed the ball over him deep into the corner. The first lob went for an outright winner, his partner retrieved the second and I can't remember who won the point. But, after the second lob, he got all huffy that I was trying to emarass him and make him look the fool. My response was that if he couldn't recognize what was coming or quickly react to a change of direction, he should try to learn from it. I was playing a shot I would not normally attempt against better players, but against this opposition, I could readily hold the ball and play misdirection shots. He stormed off after our win. What say you? Was I wrong to have a little fun and play shots I would not normally have the chance to execute or should I dumb down my game to the opposition. When I have done that in the past, I have found I often make stupid unforced errors and lost games and sets, I should have handily won.
