I had several rules about my on-court conversations, or advice, during
- I’m not going to tell you anything unless I feel pretty darned sure
about it. You can take it or leave it, but I think it’s true.
- I didn’t “just talk” except to advise, “shake your head yes, like I might
know something.” At least the opponent may wonder.
- Don’t walk away from me in contempt or show me up. If I order you
off the court for behavior, don’t react in any way but by getting your
gear and exiting the court.
