Bad line calls

Some terrible line calls during the game today. Actually with is group of players, bad line calls is kind of route, to a point, I said something a few weeks ago. But that doesn’t stop the trend.

Today, we were 2-0 up in the first set when I hit a winner to the baseline corner of the ad court. Two balls in, yet they called it out, one player was facing me. I just lost it and went over. One opponent pointed to a ball mark closer to the service line. You got to be kidding me.

“It’s out call.” One said.

“Yes, it’s your call but it doesn’t mean you can call a clearly in ball OUT.”

“It’s our call.” they repeated.

What the heck.

A sweet moment

My third clinic at the club, the pro is the best, so far. Next to our court, is a father and son, they kissed at the net, very sweet.

50 shades of grey

All of us won a grey top -:)

6-4, 6-4, 4-4: a hard fought win.

I got hit for the first time as my partner was receiving the serve. I was too slow to move away. I told our opponents that they got the point but they didn’t believe me. Oh well … 

Question: During my singles match, I hit a ball to my opponent and it hit his shoe on the fly. At the time he was standing behind the baseline. My opponent said the ball was out and it didn’t matter that it hit his shoe because he was behind the baseline. I argued that if the ball hits a player or any part of his body/apparel with the exception of the racquet, the point is the hitter’s. Who wins the point?

ANSWER: You win the point. Rule 24i explains that a player loses the point if a ball in play touches the player or anything the player is wearing or carrying (excluding the racquet). Your opponent lost the point as soon as the ball hit his shoe. Code 19 requires your opponent to concede the point when this happens.

Over due

I got an email from the club, saying I owe them. Wait a second, how could that be: they’ve my cc on file and has been charging it.
“These were court fees.”
“Oh … why don’t you charge me as the monthly club due, automatically?”
The staff looked up the computer, then said, “you didn’t check off √ ‘court fee’.” Oh well, must be my failing eyesight.

Club’s operation is pretty precise – a good thing. The more I play there, the more I like it.  Years ago when I hosted many Sunday night plays, I didn’t pay much attention to the club.

4-6, 6-4, 6-4 and it’s not ok

A little girl returned our ball that hit my opponent’s face. The girl said I’m sorry three times while my friend was holding her face for a prolonged time. We rushed to the net … then the dad said to his girl “It’s ok.”

“How do you know it’s ok? It’s not your place to say it’s ok. And it is NOT ok.” I said.

He retorted, “she said I’m sorry Three time. What more do you want?”

“I want some manner and etiquette!” I said.

He just ignored us and continued…

The bridge/overpass on Northern Blvd by Roslyn. 

One of my friend went to get some ice (thanks that the club has ice …) It’s swollen a little.

Not that anything one can do … but I would wish all the coaches and parents would have decency and courtesy to pass on. If the dad offered to get some ice I would think it’s a better lesson for his little girl …

🎾 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 难得的赢

A rather rude dad 他小闺女还🎾 不小心打到俺朋友的脸
朋友马上捂着 … 红 + 小肿 需要冰冰敷

可能外国老爹看着自己的孩子道歉不顺气 对闺女说 “没事儿.”

6-3, 4-6, 6-1

Finally, a win!

In the morning, we always ran into a group of kids, college I’d think. They’re great players and their play often inspire us to play better.

The club has install this temperature tester on the wall … hope this won’t last forever.
