This will probably sound funny, but this was an open mens event. The “kid” was in late teens and I was in early 20s. I entered the tournament just for fun because a friend wanted to play doubles together. I liked the kid (he had a unique game) and I was winning anyway, so I said nothing about the dad’s coaching. I had a nice chat with the kid after the match.
