This is just a really good habit to adopt as a tournament player. Sometimes something comes up the day of the match and your opponent can't make it. You may save yourself a trip or prepare better for a match you have later in the day. Tournament staff may not have time to reach you before you leave when the other person calls to default.

Arnold Belinsky Tennis Biography
Arnold Belinsky learned to play tennis while he was stationed in the Navy at the Coronado Amphibious Base in his early twenties. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Arnold played many sports, however tennis was not popular amongst his friends when he was growing up. Nonetheless, living in San Diego, always known to be one of the greatest hotbeds for tennis in the United States, Arnold took to tennis like a duck takes to water. When he finished the service, got married, and started a family, tennis became one of the loves in his life. Aside from working and becoming very successful in the retail furniture business (Arnold’s Furniture & Interiors and Legacy Home Furnishings), tennis became Arnold’s favorite pastime. He introduced the game to his wife, Esther, and then to his three children: Larry, Craig, and Sheila. He founded and developed a neighborhood junior tennis collective called the “College Racqueteers” which included his children’s closest friends to insure that his kids would stay close to the sport. Arnold had his children take tennis lessons from local tennis pros and then entered them in junior tennis tournaments. Larry, Craig, and Sheila played college tennis and after they finished their education, continued to play in competitive senior tennis events. In addition, they also partnered with Arnold and Esther in family events such as Father/Son, Mother/Son, Father/Daughter, and Brother/Sister. Arnold and Esther were one of the original founders of the Barnes Junior Tennis Center and served on the Executive Board for Youth Tennis San Diego. Today, the Belinsky Family name is present at many different venues in San Diego County: the Belinsky Family Clubhouse at Balboa Tennis Club, the Belinsky Family Tennis Court at the Barnes Tennis Center, The Arnold and Esther Belinsky and Family Playground at the Booth Education Building, the Tennis Complex at the San Diego Jewish Academy, the tennis courts at the Jewish Community Center, and tennis sponsorship at Canyon Crest Academy.
Arnold became a highly ranked senior in his respective age divisions throughout his tennis-playing career and even reached #1 in 65 singles in 1996. In addition, he won a Bronze Medal at the World Maccabiah Games in Israel, a Bronze Ball with Larry in Super-Senior Father/Son (2001), and two Bronze Balls with Sheila - one in Senior Father/Daughter in 2001, and the other in Super-Senior F/D in 2002. Arnold was a member in good standing with the United States International Club as well as an Honorary Member of Mexico’s International Club (IC) Team.
Arnold will always be known as a true friend to the San Diego Tennis Community and his legacy will live on forever through his children and his children’s children.
