You've never heard of gamesmanship playing a role in match outcomes? Well I have and I think it can play a role in getting into the opponent's head. Whether it should or not is a separate mannerGeorgeWHitler said:No amount of shenanigans, can make a player miss the ball.
Like I said: whether it should get into the opponent's head or not is not the matter, the fact is that often or maybe sometimes, it does. Knowing this, players can use that for gamesmanship. It is well within their rights. Yesterday may not be a case in point. Still, 4-all, deuce, in the 5th is a strategic point.GeorgeWHitler said:You must not be familiar with my view on this subject, cause if so, then you wouldn't have made such a point. Considering I have had a long clear stance about the issues concerning time outs and other forms of gamesmanship.
No matter how shit it is and do I really need to give examples, liking serving for matches and calling the trainer for cramps etc etc, the thing is the other player still at the end has to concentrate on hitting the yellow round thing.
