The medical time-out is over.
I will start serving.
Am I 0-15 BEFORE STARTING SERVING?
Is it what you call a point penalty
Yes. The coaches vote on these rules. This one, I am guessing is to help deter players from taking a medical timeout at "convenient" times of the match. And umpires and coaches are not doctors, and sometimes it's hard for a trainer to determine if its legit, so the best way is to make it across te board.
