Like this one, at 6:42 of the video. Nice shot, Doug!

That one always bring a smile to my face, how I cut across the court and got to the ball just as it was diving towards the floor. Still one of my all-time best shots, made that much more special that it was in doubles with you Jim! :)

okay, I have another question, I thought I would just add to this thread rather than starting a new one. when I'm playing at the club and someone's ball comes into another playing area, we'll just loudly call out "let" and get it. So if it's in the middle of a rally and a ball bounces behind me, I'll just call out "let" and stop the point. Same if someone is walking by or something. it only happened once in the tournament, but I waited til the point was over, then asked the other player if he wanted a let (he did). So in a tournament is it appropriate to call a let in the middle of a point or no? is it different if there's an umpire?

Just watched that one, great shot but was clearly a well tempered match given the high-5 the opponent offered up!

Technically only an umpire can call a let. But you're doing the right thing, which is feel ir the appropriate etiquette, by offering a let to the opponent even if you won the point, just in case it distracted him.

If there is no umpire, I think that if you see the ball coming into the court, it's quite OK to call a let if it distracts you, and it's within the rules as it's a disturbance to the playing conditions.

The important thing to remember if there's no umpire is that you have to call the let as the point is taking place. Technically, you are not allowed to attempt the shot, miss it, then call the let after the fact. Now, it's not always possible to stop your swing if you are in the middle of it. And most players will understand that. But if you see a ball at your feet, for example, and take the shot but miss it, you can't get a "do over" for missing the shot.

this is good to know. I hardly ever take a let if someones asks me, but I offer all the time. on the other hand, some players just say take a let and don't ask, so we just replay it. i guess if it's obvious that there should be a let but nobody calls it, it's good form to ask the player that lost the point if they want a let? this seems like the right thing to do. i would only call it right in the middle of a point if it was totally obvious while it was happening or something, but some guys seem to do it a lot.

In a friendly practice match I'll ask if someone wants a let if they don't say anything. But in an official tournament match, it's up to them to say something and ask for it. When results that will affect my rating are on the line, to me, it's up to them to speak up. If they don't, I figure it didn't really bother them.
