Q. During a recent match playing doubles, my partner fell during a point and we continued to play the point out while she was on the ground (obviously not injured). We did go on to win the point. Afterward, we discussed this and we were not sure if this should be called a let. We took the point as none of us knew the ruling for this situation.
A. Falling down or dropping the racket when hitting the ball are situations that can occur on court and are considered a normal part of the game and are not considered a hindrance.
