I wasn't sure where to post this but I wanted to get it out there. I hate it when people are late to team tennis matches (USTA) or who show up late to team practices. The worst is also when we have an indoor court booked and the same person shows up for doubles about 5 mins late every time. We only get the courts in 90 minute blocks so it's hard to get a full best of 3 sets in even when everyone is on time. This last time we were about 5-7 minutes in to our doubles warmups indoors when the person strolled in and finally got on the court (after changing shoes, taking off a few layers, having a few sips of water, etc). About 5 mins later I said "is everyone ready for serves" and this person was like "already?". I called him out and said we all here on time and had warmed up plenty already and I got a smug response back. I don't really have a question for anyone but figured I would see if there are people out there with similar teammates or hitting partners. I'm pretty anal about being on time for everything, getting to the matches/courts early to do some stretching, so when it's time to go I'm fully ready. It's like going to work, if you are supposed to start work at 8AM then that means you are at your desk, computer on, ready to roll. It doesn't mean walk in the door at 8AM, go get coffee , chit chat with everyone, eat your yogurt and then boot up the computer so at 8:15 you're working. I know the easy fix is to play with someone else or stop inviting them out, but am I wrong for wanting people to be on time for tennis?
