I had several rules about my on-court conversations, or advice, during
a match:

  1. 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.
  2. I didn’t “just talk” except to advise, “shake your head yes, like I might
    know something.” At least the opponent may wonder.
  3. 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.
