Re: Strange opponent behaviors

Am I allowed to say myself from the viewpoint of my opponent?

I'm mentally so up and down. Cursing over a missed forehand, monologues with myself too. Example: "Oh my fucking GOD! Another double fault! You're fighting your ass off to stay in this, and you double fault on game point? Fuck!"

Or

"Son of a bitch, you just missed two 2nd serve forehand returns, bro! And both on break point! Shit!"

Or

"Fuckin' A, you can't miss that forehand."

Or

"Get into position better, dude. Your footwork is sloppier than Lindsay Lohan."

Or

"Holy shit he's hitting more lines than Mickey Rourke!"

Or

"How can you miss such an easy shot?!?! You are such a pussy! Get fucked!"



To be honest, it is probably really funny from my opponent's point of view, but I'm just in agony when I have these talks with myself. Funny enough, I play my best tennis when I'm focused and not talking to myself.

I played a guy, who used to change his t-shirt, his cap and his racquette every time there was a change of ends. He yelled "Go to daddy" (on russian) every time he won a point, and yelled "Fuck" (on russian) every time he lost a point.

I also play against a bunch of women who have a whole litany of strange behaviors -- everything from the way their hair looks to where their bag has to be on the crossovers.
That's hardcore

Strange opponent behaviors

Who was the strangest person you ever played against? Not talking tennis style-wise, but attitude. Like, for example, I played a guy from Texas...he was calm and shy before the match, but he dropped the f-bomb every time he missed. Nice guy, but the handshake was rather bittersweet.
