poach in tennis[edit]

What is poach in tennis? Both noun and verb. Thought you might know since you care about boring sport. Equinox 00:42, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

When a doubles player darts sideways across the court to intercept a ball played to the side where their partner is. --Gibraltar Rocks (talk) 20:55, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
You want me to add the defn, don't you? I will do it eventually. --Gibraltar Rocks (talk) 17:07, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Ah, makes sense now, "poach" as in "steal". Equinox 21:33, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Once I was playing tennis and I got the ball stuck in the hole below the frame. I was declared the winner immediately. Also, I gotta add a tennsi definition to grommet --Gibraltar Rocks (talk) 21:44, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Boops[edit]

Your edit comment was both right and wrong in some odd ways: in taxonomy, a generic name is the name of a genus, so "Boops" is the generic name, rather than "boops boops". "Bogue" is better referred to as the common name or vernacular name.

Still, I have to agree that

isn't nearly as much fun as
