I'm curious...during a rally when your opponent lobs the ball and it lands on your side of the table with a very high bounce, what if you totally missed that ball by accident, recover and then hit the ball back. Is that legal? I have done that in the past (on purpose) for entertainment purposes and it happened when I took my eye off the ball but I have never did that during a match. I know if you do that on a serve, it's the other guy's or gal's point!
It is allowed to swing at the ball twice. I have seen it done recently even on a return of serve and it was very effective... but very difficult to do.
Even on a serve if you miss it the first time and can somehow revere and hit it on the second swing it would be allowed...
