Pointing this out since some Europeans like to make it sound like it is the end of the universe when this happens in the US.

I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I cannot claim to be the founder of any contingent of Grumpy Old Men, being a Sardonically Cheerful Old Man myself, but I am Assistant Head Wazoo of the Bad Hombres and Nasty Women Chapter 666 of Southwest Tucson, Arizona.  We are a non profit organization whose principal goal is to make life as miserable as possible for the Narcissistic cretin, deadbeat, liar, hypocrite, bigoted, bullying misogynist who will soon become Commander in Chief of this politically dangerously ill informed republic of ours.

Edit:  Doh!  Just noticed the title.  So of course the issue is the lack of umpire.

It is a 37 minute video.  Are you referring to the lack of umpire, illegal serves, or something else later on in the video?

If it is the lack of umpires, then I call rubbish from the get-go.  In so many of the non US matches club matches I've seen, the "umpire" is really a slightly glorified score keeper who performs only the most basic of umpiring duties.  He's typically more like a score keeper/arbiter.

My strong belief undisputable:
-- Disregard of service rule is disregarg of your playmate, and more so if playing non-umpire matches.
