If my opponent was to return the ball too far and it misses the table, but it also inadvertently hits my racket before falling to the ground, who would be rewarded the point?

P.S. Thank you very much for taking time out of your day and answering all of these questions!

Hi Nico,

If the ball goes out past the table and then hits your racket then it will still be your point because it has already gone out.  If however your racket was above the table surface and you hit it before it bounces then it is your opponent's point.

Hope that clears it up for you.
