Question Biggest point ever made by hitting opponent?

While playing doubles a couple of weeks ago, I accidentally hit one of my opponents quite hard on the head with the ball. My overhead smash was supposed to go to his feet, but went horribly wrong, and would have hit the back fence had his head not intervened. Oh, and it was match point.

I felt bad and apologized (I don't enjoy hitting people) but it made me wonder: in the history of the game, what is the biggest point ever made by beaning an opponent? I imagine this happens more frequently in doubles than in singles, but does anyone know of a championship game, set, or match that has ended this way?

It must be, erm, rather awkward afterwards.

Historians?

Roddick-Federer Wimbledon 2009.

Unbeknown to many, that shanked forehand by Duck later hit Federer on the shoulder on its way down as he was changing shirts

Interesting question. I can't think of any really big points, I think I remember watching a match in IW where they hit each other two points in a row, but that was just M1000 so don't know if it qualifies as big (or even what match it was)

Sweeting looks so much different from when I last saw him.

He looks so much better now

Imagine if Sweeting somehow won the match after that.
