This is the polar opposite to the previous one, and I must say that this type of player is rarer: the ones who say sorry for everything! With their partner, they always have a "No, no, sorry, my mistake" on the tip of their tongue. They also apologise to their opponents if they win an easy point, or if they hit the ball too hard… They say sorry for everything.
They are characterised by having all the equipment, from wristbands to overgrips, in true professional style. They arrive before everyone else and put on cream (so strong it can be smelt from the furthest court, even though they’re playing on the first one). They do warm-ups and run around the court edge. They finish the match and repeat an exact, complete stretching regime. Very professional.
The moaner may be another of the most awkward player types, especially for their opponents who get tired of hearing excuses and complaints. If they lose a point, it’s because the other player got lucky, or because they were blinded by the sun, or because a pigeon flew by right at that moment. Anything not to admit that their opponent played better and beat them.
