There was not a single incident where I would point to and say ... AHAA they are giving away points. It was subtle things ....
For example ... in my first service game they returned the ball cross court, hit a couple volleys and eventually we made a mistake and they broke me easily. After the first service game they started hitting out on every serve, often down the line. They were attempting to win the point with one swing ... sometimes it worked, often they missed.
For two former college players and recent 5.0's this seemed like very poor strategy unless you wanted to have some fun while keeping it close.
