    Default What do you say to each other when you lose a point?

    Playing doubles we must inevitably lose many points, what kind of things can you usefully say to your partner when you lose a point?

    Usually "that was your fault".

    Or, if I'm being more constructive, "unlucky" or "right idea".

    Please clarify who lost the point, you or your partner?

    if we lose 1 or 2 points: i obv say nothing.

    if we lose more points/play bad, i usually try to say something encouraging, especially if he plays some weaker points...

    something like: "next one", "forget it", "stay positive", "have fun".

    if it's something tactical, i usually say something i could do better and then something he could do better.
    "i have to smash more in between them and cover the net better, you should try to lift less."

    MD: "Hit it OVER the net" when my partner smashes the net or "aaaAAARRRGGGHHH!" when I smash the net. XD: "Can we play traditional mixed with you at the front yet?", or anything to rile my partner as we both play better angry. Usually just a "come on" or "unlucky". For net kills that go into the net I like my old coach's comment of "nevermind, that was the right shot/idea" - encouragement.

    It's not like it only ever happened once latecomer. And do we want to get into this blame game anyway? She may have been the last one to touch the shuttle, but maybe it was my play that put her in a bad position?

    For me, it depends. If I play with a partner who obviously doesn't know about basic doubles stance / tactics, I will give some tips between the rallies. If I know my partner just had a couple of mishits, I try to take it easy, give him or her five, maybe even some "Ho!" like shout, and then handle it like a "reset" - not to continue the misfortunate game so far.

    I usually try to tell them how to avoid making the same mistake in the heat of rallies like that again, and he does the same to me.
