What happened was I tried to hit a drop shot but I ended up hitting it a bit high but with a ton of slice. The ball dropped right behind the net on his side like a beautiful drop shot would and him having been back at the baseline, made a fruitless run for the ball. However, before he could reach it, the extreme slice caused it to hop back over the net and onto my side and obviously not expecting this, I was unable to get to it myself. My question is who earned the point? Does he actually have to get his racket on the ball for it to count as a return or did I just hit a winner for him against myself?
