Your own cheating experiences?

seeing as the main topic on the board at the moment is the sprem-venus incident, i was just wondering what kind of gamesmanship problems everyone has had in tournaments

i have been known for a bit of gamesmanship, bad calls, trashtalking etc
this is probably the worst thing ive done:
i was playing this guy in an australian national junior points tourney. he was a nice guy, but he was probably the biggest moonballer ive ever had to play. he won the first 6-1 and i was going crazy. i managed to win the second 6-2 by fighting fire with fire
we got to 6-6 in the third and 5-5 in the tiebreaker. we were having a huge moonball rally when i thought fuck this he doesnt deserve it im a better player so i called a ball out that was inside the baseline by about 6 inches
he questioned it and i said i saw the ball as out. he was ruffled and i won the next point and the match
when we shook hands he called me a fuckin hook and then it really sunk in what i had done. i felt awful about it and still do. especially bcos after the match i was selected for a state squad and he wasnt and the selection was probably depending on that match
i have learned from it though and havent done anything like that since

Go the Aussies

Yes, I cheated once in a doubles final but still lost the match, though. A year later, we revenge them in excatly same pairs, round, tournament and result!

Well....one time I was playing a doubles match (the only one I lost last year ) and during a game when we were down 7-8 (proset, first to 8 by two) I aced the opponent with a forehand-ish serve and we would have been ahead 40-0 love in that game but he wouldn't accept the point, because he said it "wasn't fair" and I just let him have the point instead of arguing about it because some other people were trying to get onto the court and we were trying to get done fast, so I didn't have time to argue. Well I let them have the point, and they went on to win the game and therefore the match. Now I wish I hadn't!

aussie terms:
hook=cheat
hack=moonballer
tank=someone who just smacks the shit outta the ball
puddler=sort of like a hack, except instead of allout moonballs they just hit average midcourt balls all day

Well, I have cheated a couple of times, mostly by calling balls out that were in... but I feel so bad about it, that I usually end up giving it back to them by calling "in" for balls that were really out. I guess I have a guilty conscience.

I never cheat. If I ever made a bad call, "I would be honest about it," and correct it. lol.

I was once accused of cheating when I hadn't. I was down 5-7 2-4 in the final of our annual club championships. My opponent (a total dick who deserved nothing but an ass whooping) was serving on his advantage. He hit what he thought was an ace, but I called it wide because I saw green space between the line and where the ball landed. This was played on grass and he heatedly argued that he saw a puff of chalk go up. I made it clear that it was my call and that there had been NO chalk and that it was clearly wide. He didn't believe me and called me a cheat. He then took a bathroom break and bad-mouthed me to anyone who would listen to him. I am a popular member there, so no one was really convinced by his accusation. Had he won the point, he would have been up 7-5 5-2 in the second set, but I got it back to 4-4 and then closed out the set 6-4.

The people sitting behind our court told me that they saw ball as indeed being clearly wide and that I had no reason to worry. They then admitted that my opponent had made at least four very bad line calls, calling out on balls that had landed on the line. I didn't see the shots as I usually turn away once a call has been made. My theory is that it is my opponent's call to make and that there's no point in arguing it once a call has been made. But my opponent was a hypocrite and a liar. After he came back, I whooped his ass good and red. At the net, he called me a cheat again and claimed he had stomach cramps. Maybe he shouldn't have smoked two cigarettes before the match. The score in the end was 5-7 6-4 6-0. Up yours, dumbass!

Every time I lose my opponent cheated!
Although, seriously, I did once get cheated out of a match. It was 6-6, first set tiebreak and we kept winning our serve points in the breaker until 5-5. I served what clearly appeared to be an ace. Even he went to the other side for the next point. However, he stood there for a second, and said "Actually, I think I'll call it out because it was close"! No joke, he actually said those exact words! I was so pissed off so I lost 7-6 6-3!
Also, everytime my opponent moonballs, I call it unsportsmanlike and cheating!

I once time had a K-lina moment. I was playing a guy who THOUGHT he was good and the coach told me to beat him at love to show him that he need a long way to go if he was going to even play on the HS team. So away we were playing and during one of the games we both completely lost track of the score and just had to start over that game cause I had no idea and neither did he. He did lose 6-0 6-0

I used to play tennis every day with my friend.
This one time I hit the ball and she went through the hole in the net and then hit the court on his side "I got" the point and he said "wow I thought it's not coming above the net but somehow it did" and my answer was "so did I"

But he used to call in question my powerfull services which hit the line all the time so it sounds fair to me
