How about if the player, while falling down, is screaming "Owie, son-of-a-*****) or such? I imagine the vocalization could be a hindrance.

And there are all kinds of falls. What if they fall in a "serious" way like just collapsing in a heap or driving their head into the net post a la James Blake? Of course, talking about the rules for a competitive match these scenarios don't really apply...(but what if the surviving player was match point down and missed his shot, lost to a dead man.)

Oh, I guess Blake would've lost the point for touching the net post before the point was over.
