Well, I've noticed it before but yesterday was over the top.
It was one of a few beautiful days we've been getting here in NYC and everyone was on the Tennis courts. I heard, "sorry" at least 300 times in the course of 3hrs of being out there. Ball rolling out, running across the courts, miss hits, any ole thing.

I said, Tennis people will say sorry for farting too loud during a point, even if it wasn't heard!!

Just thought I'd share that.....................BTW

So true. I never bother to say it anymore. Now I'm considered the "weird" one.

FF, imnsho, you barge onto my court while I"m playing, or pollute the air I'm trying to breathe (how anyone would notice the difference in NYC is another story ;) ), an apology IS in order :P

lmao at Foot_Fault!

We don't have to say sorry if we make a player cry do we? *looks all innocent* ;) :p

Interesting... the next time I play I will try to cut the word out of my vocabulary completely, and see how I feel.

I think it's just proper tennis ettiqute. B/C if you don't say it, people get a lil crazy too, start to looking at you crazy. It's pretty funny.

try not saying it and see what happens.
I will do it tomorrow.
