Oh, I didn't even have a clue that it is the opponent who should call a ball that passed through the net
This has only happened to me once that I hit the ball through the hole below the tape. The opponent was confused why I stopped play after what he thought was a netcord. He didn't quite believe me until I shoved my hand through the hole in the net
Anyway, if the opponent hasn't seen it and you have, you are still obliged to call it, same as with a missed out call, aren't you?
