There are multiple threads over the years about a rule on a ball hitting singles sticks, net posts, etc. Per rule book, the rules are: "2. PERMANENT FIXTURES The permanent fixtures of the court include the backstops and sidestops, the spectators, the stands and seats for spectators, all other fixtures around and above the court, the chair umpire, line umpires, net umpire and ball persons when in their recognised positions. In a singles match played with a doubles net and singles sticks, the net posts and the part of the net outside the singles sticks are permanent fixtures and are not considered as net posts or part of the net." and "13. BALL TOUCHES A PERMANENT FIXTURE If the ball in play touches a permanent fixture after it has hit the correct court, the player who hit the ball wins the point. If the ball in play touches a permanent fixture before it hits the ground, the player who hit the ball loses the point." so in Djokovic vs. Murray match in Shanghai, at 1:1 in the third set, second point, Murray clearly hits the net outside singles sticks. And he wins a point. Why is that? See the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd6KZisXqbw&t=7m40s Woodrow?
