That's my call to make, even though it happened on your side of the court.
Couldn't you have just cited the exact rule being discussed to disprove his claim?
I did recently have an opponent swear up and down that we could not call a let when another court's ball bounced onto our court behind her in the middle of a point, as she didn't see it or call it and only the people on that side of the court can call a let.
