Default Opponent flirting with my partner!?

Played a match yesterday and my partner couldn't focus during points as the guy, a dark/handsome Mediterranean type, from the opposing team was flirting with her all day.

She giggled away the first set imo, but we managed to win a set to get even* before we called it a day.

Have any of you guys had to deal with this dynamic before? Do you intervene or is tennis subordinate to romance? Have you ever played against someone you liked?

This was just a friendly match, so only egos/pride at stake. I rarely play mixed doubles so this is new to me.



* Mostly due to an argument between our opponents. Dunno if it was flirting related.
