Had kind of an icky match today. Opponents started out the match by hooking us a few times on the center service line. We didn't make a big deal, but I filed these ladies under "Folks I've Decided I Don't Care For." Then my partner was serving. She missed a first serve, but returner had hit it into the net. Receiver's partner strolled up to the net to clear the ball. She then turned her back and started walking back to the service line. As her back was turned, my partner served. The receiver hesitated, then popped the ball over the net. The receiver's partner then said, "Hold on, I wasn't ready!" I said, "Your partner was ready and she returned the ball which proves she was ready. There is nothing in the rules that says you have to be ready. So -- " "MY BACK WAS TURNED! SHE'S SUPPOSED TO LOOK UP BEFORE SHE SERVES. SHE NEVER LOOKED UP!!" "Look. It should be loss of point because there was a point in progress and your talking while the ball was on its way to us was a hindrance. Instead, let's play a let. First serve, then?" The lady then grumbled something inaudible and declined to repeat it when I asked what she said. I think they were unhappy that my partner got a first serve. Man. I hate it when you cut someone a break and they still have a 'tude.
