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.
Can you please post pics of your playing partner? I'm an expert.... I'll let you know if it was flirting or not and what she can do about it.......
