I played a ladder match Monday evening against a peculiar opponent. I should have realized this when I found him smoking a cigarette while waiting at the court for me. I had fun and did not have any complaints, but he did several things that I'm guessing posters on this forum would not approve of. (1) We did not wam up with mini-tennis. Instead, he started blasting groundstrokes at full speed. (While I personally do not like mini-tennis, I do like to ease into the warmup). (2) He caught one ball that was clearly beyond the baseline. I had no problem with it. (3) He took extended breaks at changeover to smoke. I didn't want to be a dick and rush him, so we just chatted a while between games. But we made up for time by not taking any breaks during some changeovers. (4) He never called out the score before his serve. Eventually I started doing it for him, and then one time during a long game where we had about ten deuce points, he asked me to stop b/c it was obvious what the score was! Again, I still had fun (it didn't hurt that I won rather easily, mostly because he was an extremely hard hitter with very low accuracy), but thought he would be the type of player to give some people on this forum fits!
