Do you think is beating someone 6-0,6-0 too ruthless?

I noticed Chinese #1 table tennis player Zhang Yining deliberately made a serve error to avoide giving a lowly ranked player a 11-0 game in the world championship weeks ago.This caused hot debate at that time.

So,when we back to tennis,if a player is leading 6-0,5-0,he/she has a 99% chance to win the match I think.Is it a good thing to humiliate others with two eggs?what would you do if you were a professional player?

Re: Do you think is beating someone 6-0,6-0 too ruthless?

I would play to the best of my ability. If I was tired, maybe I might let up on the gas pedal a bit, but then you're dealing with a slippery slope there, in my opinion. You never know what will give the other player motivation.

So no, if I was winning 6-0, 5-0.. I'd do my best to make it 6-0, 6-0.

You can't afford for someone even to get a look in, so allowing a player 1 game could prove fatal!

Re: Do you think is beating someone 6-0,6-0 too ruthless?

Hmmm..don't know...if my opponent is a player that I'm close to , perhaps I'd lose one game on purpose by the end of the second set.
But I'm not quite sure though

No, the player might start to play out of her mind or you might get an injury on the next game.

Re: Do you think is beating someone 6-0,6-0 too ruthless?

you would be very, very pissed off if you were up 6-0, 5-0 and decided to tank one game and then in the next game, up 40-0 you tripped over your shoelace, fell to the court but got your hand caught in your racquet, landed on your right elbow and broke it on the hard clay at pace and had to go to hospital and default the match. Bad idea.

I'd double bagel anyone, if I can. I have no sympathy for anyone when in competition, unless it's a health related issue.

Haha no, if you can pull it off you should go for it. Its a competitive sport afterall, you shouldnt care about your opponent and their feelings, well at least not on the court, save that till after
