Hello I have a question about this situation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEJZsJvIN_Q which is shown in this video. Actually after he pushed the ball on the table, the ball makes only one contact. I know that it is legal if it is one contact so why does the umpire give the enemy the point. Was it the right decision or is that a rules ?

Sry for my english but I am from Germany

Hi Lien,

The player that falls on the floor gets the ball back on the table.  This is a good shot and the player that hit the shot that rolled on the table was awarded the point.

Would the guy closer to the camera be able to continue the rally if he waited for the ball to roll off the right hand side of the table and then hit it around the net?

No. I think this is counted as many bounces rather than one bounce so the rally is dead.
