A tennis player hits the opponent with their racket due to follow through over the net when the opponent is very close to the net.
Does he/she lose the point?

1 Answer 1


If the hit was unintentional, then that's grounds for a let (i.e. replay the point).
If the hit was done intentionally, then that's grounds for default due to the over-the-top, dangerous behavior.
