Someone should give you a prize, this is the most polite and thoughtful post I've seen on these boards in ages!

For me at a tournament, I'd only be annoyed with someone else / an opponent if they:

a. Cheated
b. Arrived late
c. Didn't come prepared and asked me to borrow something major
d. Grunted like screamapova
e. Walked onto my court mid-point to get a ball

Yup, I think that covers it. In reality, the last tournament I played the only people I found annoying in any way were the horrid parents of some of the juniors!
so self-aware / so full of ~~it / so indecisive / so adamant / i'm contemplating thinking about thinking / it's overrated / just get another drink in
