In my first serious match of the year, my partner and I encountered a tough pair. We matched up rather evenly (skill-wise) and they seemed to hit lots of balls at the lines. Normally in a match, there are just a few balls that are "close" and, on the whole, I'd say I'm usually quite generous in giving the benefit-of-the-doubt. 99% out is still IN.
But today, there were two points/shots that were very close and I was already lined up to make my return. Because we were down in the match, I was concentrating intensely and went ahead and swung through but called the ball out asap (even while I was in motion).
I think The Code generally says you're to stop play when you recognize the ball "out" and that's what I generally do. But I just couldn't seem to stop myself...either from swinging through or making the call. In both cases, I'm certain the ball was out; our opponents really didn't even argue. But I'm wondering what the correct protocol should have been.
ps...and BTW...we were down 3-8...and came back to win 10-8.
