Either way, the final call is theirs.
On the other hand if they make a good return, you have to play the point. You can't stop play and claim your serve was out.
Thanks that helps
I'm forced to play the point
Whatever the outcome of that point
Afterwards can i still say I thought my 1st serve is out ? Yes ?
Up to the opponent to decide to let that point stand , whether I won or he/she won the point or replay the point and do the 2nd serve
Is this legit ?
