I have learned that when a player attempts to serve and misses, his opponent wins the point.  If a player tosses the ball in the air and makes no attempt to serve, does he lose the point?   Thanks

Hi Rick,

Once the ball leaves the hand it is technically in play so even if he doesn't swing at the ball it is the other player's point.
