Afterwards, and maybe because we're all "friendly," one of our opponents breaks down, sobbing. Background issues aside, she openly complained about me showing up to play with a bunch of "germs."

Seriously? Other than touching the balls to serve to hit/toss them back over the net....I did nothing. Never touched the scorecard (which we never even used), wasn't "close" across the net from her and, afterwards, politely acknowledged the match but didn't shake hands.

Have any of you ever had cause to pause....because your opponent is or admitted to having been sick recently? Do you think you could get sick from merely playing a match against someone who had been ill?
Where does everyone meet all of these people?
