so I have few self-made rules when I play. (I mean I do not read those or announce to anybody - I just follow them myself when playing.) I wonder if it makes me not fun to play with. We are talking matches with friends and such, not tournaments/leagues. Thoughts? 1. I do care about winning. Either we practice and then we do not keep the score, or we play and the goal is to win. 2. I do not cheat. 3. I do not discuss line calls. I make calls on my side, you make calls on your side. If you question I do not reply, just go back to line to serve or receive. 4. on clay courts I will show you a mark if asked, but I do not appreciate you coming on my side to check it from up close. 5. i do not apologize for net cords, lucky shots, etc. I'm certainly not sorry, in fact if i could i would hit netcord every time. 6. no talking during the match (I do not mind you talking, but it will likely be a monologue). After the match is over i will happily open a bottle or two. And discuss the match then. 7. i do not thank for you complementing me for my shot. i do not complement your shots. i don't expect you to complement me. i just don't care. 8. no replaying points (because you are not sure what the call is). If you are not sure you can ask me. You must accept my call then. If I do not know it's good. Same with my calls. i was not running hard to win a point only to pretend it never happened. 9. whoever lost last time brings new balls. 10. as i play to win i revert to pushing, slicing, lobbing, drop-shots - whatever it takes. If that makes you unhappy - even better. 11. if you showed up I do not care if you are sick, had your leg amputated, went blind, or it's too windy for you. You are here to play. 12. and you better do show up. we are all busy with wife/kids/work and spent five hours rearranging stuff to make a match - you better not call an hour before to tell me that you decided to go to the movies. 13. there's no 'it was really close'. the score shows who was the better player that day. 14. you are free to talk trash to me, throw rackets, scream at yourself - as long as you play next points within 25 seconds. 15. i'm allowed rest time after odd games. If you are ready before me do some exercises.
