Thought that was very sporting etiquette in table tennis

I'm not aware of such etiquette in tennis... are you?
I remember Edberg at Wimbledon one time after he won a match 6-0 6-0 6-0 saying he was considering giving his opponent a game but thought he may never be in a position to triple bagel an opponent again so he took it.
