Totally agree...No matter how ****ed I am with my partner's game, I would not point out his mistakes at the end of the match. Even when he asked of my opinion, I would try to be diplomatic with my answer on suggestions of ways of hitting. Another no-no is to correct your partner every mistake he makes during the game.
