even though it had no chance in hell of boomeranging itself back onto your court. Somehow, judging by your posts, I'm sure you would.
No. There are rules governing when a third party makes contact with a ball. The point is over. Its just as if the ball hit a fence or any other permanent fixture. The person who hit the ball loses the point. Furthermore, it would be difficult for my opponent to offer me a let since in the scenario you described it would be absurd to claim that either of us was hindered.
I lose the point.
You would know the above if you read the rules.
