I saw fair amount of cheating going on including on return of serve by doing the following. The returner would go for a winner even if the first serve was out. If they made the winner they would call the ball in, if they missed they would call it out. I asked the junior player who I was driving to the tournaments about this and he told me it was a common practice. There were also a fair amount bad line calls. The junior players seem to expect it. It is a real shame in my opinion. Has anyone else witnessed this sort of behavior in the juniors? or even any organized tennis team play?
Juniors are very dishonest and deceitful.
Adults are scrupulously fair and honest in all things big and small.
