So I have an odd question about a special case for a serve. I understand that for a serve to be a let, the serve hits the net but must otherwise be a legal serve. Normally this is when you serve, the ball hits your table, the net, then the opponent's table. However, what if the order is changed? I got a really lucky (or unlucky) serve where the ball hit the net, my table, then the opponent's table. In short, a normal let serve has the order table-net-table, but what if the order is net-table-table? Thanks!
I haven't ever seen this happen and don't know the answer definitively however by looking at the rule I think it would have to be a Let. The rule states:
2.9 A LET
2.9.1 The rally shall be a let:
220.127.116.11 if in service the ball touches the net assembly, provided the service is otherwise correct or the ball is obstructed by the receiver or his or her partner;
I will have to try to replicate it as well...
