Was playing a league match the other day. Indoors, with curtains between the court. Opponent (with a big serve, if that matters) missed her first serve, and my partner let it go back to the curtain, where it lay out of the way. Before opponent could start her second serve, ball from neighboring court rolls slowly onto our court, near the net. Server's partner scooted up and rolled it back over to the adjacent court and took her position. Server yells, "Do I get two serves?" My partner yells back, "Why?" Server points racket in direction of where ball had rolled in. My partner looked at me and I said she doesn't get a second serve just because a ball rolled onto the court between first and second, but go ahead if you want. My partner said to take two serves. Here's what the Code says: If you were the server, do you request two serves in this situation? If you were the receiver, would you have given her two serves? Do any of the intangibles (importance of point, importance of match, strength of first serve) matter to you in deciding whether to give two serves? Personally, I don't ask for a second serve because of a delay unless the delay is really ridiculous or the receiver caused it. If I think I should get a second serve, I will just stand there a second or two to see if the receiver will grant the second serve. If not, then I toss the ball as many times as it takes to make sure I won't DF. Personally, I don't think it is really very good manners to ask for a second serve unless the delay is really egregious. Still, if asked I will usually give them a first serve just out of courtesy, in the hope they will do the same for me later.
