A Day on the Tennis Court

   Our next opponent in the tennis league, Richmond, came to the match with a dreadful record of 0 wins, 5 losses. The interesting thing about Richmond was their captain. Every captain has a different personality in this league, but I have been warned about Mikhail being a 'A22 ................... '.

   We hosted Richmond on Saturday. Some of their players, who had paid large A23 ................... to be a member of their club, seemed annoyed that they had to play on our public courts, a far A24 ................... from the quality of the typical private club. As their players took the court, Mikhail grabbed a measuring tape out of his bag and measured the height of the net. He complained that the net was a half inch too high and demanded that we drop it. I felt A25 ................... saying, 'Look, your team is 0-5, does it really A26 ...................?',but instead I lowered the net to his satisfaction.

   Due to Mikhail's complaints, we started the match about fifteen minutes late. Later in the match, four points into a game, Mikhail called out the score '40-15.' 'No, no. The score is 30 all,' I said, approaching the net. My partner nodded in agreement.

   After a long argument and attempt to recall all of the points in the game, we could only remember three points. I said, 'The rule in this case is that we play from 30-15, the specific points in the game we all agree on.'

    'No,' Mikhail said, shaking his head. 'As server, it's my call and I say the score is 40-15. That's the rule.'

    Mikhail went on to win his service game. Then, I started my next service game by shouting the score '40 - A27 ...................'.When Mikhail put both hands on his hips in clear protest, I said, 'As server, it's my call.' And the congeniality went down from there.

   We went on to win the match. Afterwards, I learned Mikhail is one of those league players who always have an A28 ................... for a loss.
