i recently played a match in which my opponent served a very short backspin serve and i leaned far out to push it back
as soon as it hit his side, he hit it hard, right at me. it hit my arm and he said that it hit me while i was above the table, even though it was clearly going over the edge.
is it my point, or is it his point?
since neither of us knew, we just replayed the point
i THINK he hit it at me accidentally
This is a rule that a lot of players get wrong.
If the ball hit you above the playing surface it is your opponent's point, even if it was clearly going out.
If the ball had gone past the table and then hit it, it would be your point.
