Hi Alois/Jeff

This is a situation I've just thought of. Though I 've never faced this situation in the real life, I still want an answer so I hope you can help me :)

In a smash-lob rally, the smasher suddenly made a dropshot. The lobber rushed in and managed to return it. But his momentum was too high that he can't stop, keep running, cross to the other side and bumped the opponent. Both fell down when the opponent didn't even touch the ball. So who gets the point?

Hi Viet,

This would be the smashers point because the lobber has come onto the smashers side and interfered with them.

Hi Alois, 

Thanks for the answer. But why can't I see any part talking about this in the official rules?
