Played in the state USTA finals this weekend. It was combo doubles. The other guys were very nice, they were good sports, and they beat us. (Ugh.) I thought this was funny for a team that made it to state finals. Here was the conversation at the start of the match.
Me: "You won the spin, what do you want to do?"
Other: "You can serve to us from the shady side."
Me: "You can pick serve or side, but you can't pick both."
Other: "What? I never heard that before."
Me: "You only get to pick one. You can choose who serves first, or you can choose which side you want." (I know, they can defer too, but I didn't say that.)
Other: "Okay, we will take the sunny side."
Me: "Then we will serve first."
Other: "Well that's what I said at the beginning!"
