I'd appreciate it if someone could point me to the rule in question. What happened today was that I had a short ball hit to my side of the court. I barely got to it and slashed at it, catching the ball high up on the stringbed with a lot of backspin. It crossed over the net, bounced on my opponent's side of the court, and then bounced back over towards me, but I couldn't get out of the way and the ball hit me before bouncing a second time (it would have bounced on my side of the net the second time). I did not touch the net and my opponent (my son) was no where near and so did not hit the ball after it had bounced on his side of the court. Who wins this point? It seems like my opponent should win the point, or otherwise there is the possibility of deliberately touching the ball (and thus ending the point) prior to my opponent having an opportunity to reach over the net and hit the ball, but this also doesn't seem to make sense either since my opponent did not return my legal shot.
