Re: what if....??

the rule says that those anomalies are good i think as long as u just committed one swinging motion (e.g. a double hit)

if it got stuck in the "v", then you walked towards the net and dropped it in, i don't think that would count as good

It's happened to several players, but it usually stays there in the V section... And obviously, that player loses the point.

Re: what if....??

I'd throw the racquet with the ball stuck in it over the net to their side of the court.

"Go on, return this ball, go on!"

Although, the ball might never bounce twice or once and out if the racquet just landed flat. The opponent could pick up the racquet and throw it back!
