If anybody has ever played a pusher who "adds" to the score you'll find this familiar... Today, after playing some doubles and Australian doubles (me on on the single side), after two of the people had left, the 3.5 (this is the level he plays at here for local league play) pusher guy wanted to play me at singles. Fine by me as normally I only have a wall to hit against. The actual set score was 6-3 me. Here is how the set went: 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 3-1, 3-2, 4-2, 5-2, 5-3, 6-3. Here is how he said it went: 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 3-2, 4-2, 4-3, 5-4, 6-4. Now, I guess I could have said something but I didn't. Honestly, I found it kind of humorous. Some of this has to do with why the score was 6-3 instead of 6-0. If I would have lost this set, I would have lost it, he wouldn't have won it. What do I mean by this? Simply put, for the entire set the guy had one point against me that he could call his own. For the first two games he didn't push but I could tee off on his shots so he switched after the second game. He got his point on the second game. It was a nice shot actually. Anyway, the three games the guy won had to do with my serving and my not getting the serves in (I still need a lot of work on a reliable second serve). One of the games I lost went to three deuces - all completely on my serves, no returns after the first deuce. Except for those three games the guy managed to get to 30 only once. At any rate, I lost those three games for whatever the reason and that's that. Fair enough. Two of the guys buddies were playing next to us (they only wanted to play each other in singles). One was parked next to me and we were both leaving the court at the same time. He asked me with a laugh what the real set score was. The pusher guy was embellishing his story to look good (being clearly outclassed he "got four games"), something his friend says he is prone to doing. I told him how the set "went" and we both got a good chuckle. So, what are some of your stories with similar circumstances?
