I raise my own hand sometimes out of habit, but don't give any thought to it. Other times I"ll make eye contact and just sort of shrug, like 'eh what are you gonna do, part of the game' kind of message.
Well said. It evens out if you play enough tennis. Sort of like the crazy things that happen at a blackjack table.
Another bogus 'tradition' of the game. Some people think we need to ape everything the pros do. Like the people who when practicing try to get another ball in play the nanosecond the current one is hit out or into the net - because they've watched pros practice and that's how they do it.
