I am new to this talk of how people are "sandbagging" in tournaments. What is sandbagging?
I think it's when people over rate or under rate themselves to make the tournaments blah and stuff. But then I'm not 100% sure.
Generally speaking, in the context of league and tournament tennis, sandbagging is the descriptive name for the act of a player playing below their real capability (usually winning matches, but by closer margins than theyreally should be) . . . with the objective of keeping their tennis rating at a (lower) level where they are more likely to win. To me, it's despicable!
it's when you kick somebody in the groin.
it is usually used in flood prevention..... next question please
In juniors, it is also when a player should be playing up a division but continues to play at a lower division so that they can obtain the hardware.
Separate names with a comma.
