I have had partners tell me not to speak to our opponents, or to have my game face. Well, my game face is a big 'ol grin. Deal with it.
I had one partner that was blaming every error on me one time and barking orders of where to stand etc...
at about 4-3 in the 2nd set on the change over i walked over with the opponents and stood in the other service box and got into ready position...
they looked at me and said " are you joining are team or something?"
i said " well he doesn't want me so why not" this was followed by laughs...
his was pretty much silent for the rest of the match.
and later he requested the captain never pair us again...thankfully he only stayed with us one season as by the end of it no one wanted to play doubles with him either.
