Hi all,
Share some of the stupidest excuse that someone has given to you after they have lost a match to you.
Probably this happens in local club practice matches..

I think that stupidest excuse came from my own mouth. I lost a tennis mach and I sais to my mate that I felt sleepy becouse of my allergy medicine. That was 25 years ago and I think I will never forget it. After that... not too many excuses:).

I have this one team mate that always blames something that has nothing to do with the match. Like last time I played against him I had one net ball in the first set and that was the only one I had. He had like 5-7 during the match. I won 3-0 easily. He said I had so much luck... yeah right?!

* "the ball just didn't bounce on the table"
* "ball bounced funny, must be something wrong with the floor"
* "your teammate distracted me ..."
* "I was too tired/sick/distracted to play properly"
* "my (recently purchased) tenergy 05 rubber lost grip"

"I thought the match was best of 7 games, not 5. I would have played totally different if I had known it" :cool:

You didn't give me much of a knock in the warm up!

IMHO, any excuse said to the face of the match winner by the player who lost is stupid. The only acceptable response is to congratulate the opponent on the well-deserved win.

Also, it never hurts to ask the other player what, in their opinion, what was it you did or didn't do or didn't do well enough that allowed them to win. Sometimes you get a real golden nugget of an advice as a result.

a few excuses i've heard:
-the walls are too yellow (note: we play with orange balls and the walls in our old hall weren't white, but not yellow either, more beige like)
-you used to much spin, if you'd play real table tennis you would've never won (from an over the table counter hitter i defeated with mainly heavy backspin)

"I didn't try my best" or "I didn't use my pendulum serve because it's just a training match" (I want to save it for competitive matches)
Well, in fact, his pendulum serve was not effective against me, that's why he didn't use it.
Sometimes it's true that people don't try their best in training match but using it as an excuse is stupid. You don't try hard enough, you lose, no excuse, just put in more effort next time if you don't wanna lose.

Actually in a training match you should be trying extra hard—trying to make more risky shots to make them more consistent.

For me "I just changed my rubber and I'm not used to it." Give your excuses to your coach please

Somedays before...i had to play with a guy (read newb) who doesnt even know how to loop properly....and after a match where i missed 2 blocks...he came to me saying that...is that your new rubber sheet...i think you are finding it hard to control...then i said 'really...hw abt another match then'...i will just defend...u hit..lol...now every time he sees me around a table...he runs away from there...

Lol the sad thing is that's totally true with some people, if you can actually get their services back they haven't got a %^**! clue after that !!

I hear that one a lot as my serve/attack game is a better standard than other aspects of my game, but that doesn't mean that is all I can do.

So, sometimes, vs those who complain that way, I serve very light underspin short or half long and allow them to return the ball. Sometimes I open my attack, sometimes I give them one more chance to open first, then it is no moar Mr. Nice Guy. Result is the same, just done differently.

Playing lots of doubles I sometimes have to do the opposite to Der_Echte - in other words deliberately trying to win points just with service - in order to make up for the amount of points we lose when the oppo is serving. :o I actually prefer to win points in rallies, but there are a lot of players out there who think a rally is something you do in a car......

Serving vs a player who never saw your serves is better than military psychological warfare itself. You always keep changing the spin, speed, depth, break suddenly and subtle using the same service motion. Always fun to look at an opponent puzzled by your serve time and time again. But lets get real, you can only really do that to players a few levels below you for long. But then again, the ones making excuses about losing to you are usually a few levels below you.
