For the first time in a USTA match, I won a point when my shot landed in the opponent's court and backspun over the net!! Indoors, on clay. My shot was a volley, but not a very good one. Definitely caught some frame. It popped up pretty high and landed close to the net as the opponent raced from the baseline up to try to smack a winner. The funky backspin made it head back over to my side of the net. Opponent arrived at the ball as it was already on my side of the net but high enough for her to reach. She made a hesitant attempt to play it -- raising her racket and then pulling back -- but chose not to hit it. Point and game to us. At the changeover, we all had a good chuckle, but the opponent said something interesting. She said, "I got there, but I realized I couldn't reach onto your side of the net to play the ball. So I was screwed." Uh oh. Someone hasn't been watching John Lovitz's Tennis Channel segments on the rules apparently. We explained that this was the one situation where she could have reached across. Anyway, has anyone else ever won a point in this fashion? Can I be in the club even though my shot was an accident?
