They hit the ball, which hit their side of the net and bounced back on their side. The ball was therefore DEAD.
My point was that a player's stupidity in taking their frustration out on the ball caused an injury to their opponent (me). Not that I had a direct and perfect 1-1 correlation in experiences, but that I could relate.
