Hidden serve is the most common illegal serve in table tennis. The player uses his free arm or his body to hide the contact point. It’s difficult to see if this was a topspin serve, a no-spin float serve, or a backspin serve. Hidden serve was allowed before but ITTF changed the rule.
Tied score= All. 40-40 = Deuce.
The simple answer is that there’s no limit on the number of times you can replay the service when it has hit the net. Rule 2.09 states that it shall be a let “if in service the ball touches the net assembly, provided the service is otherwise correct or the ball is obstructed by the receiver or his or her partner”.
A Let is called on points that don’t count. When you serve a ball that bounces on your side, then hits the net, but continues over and bounces on the opponent’s side of the table, that is a ‘let’ and does not count.
The mercy rule in table tennis is strictly a byproduct of amateur play that is based on scoring. … USATT defines the skunk rule like this: “Scores of 7-0, 11-1, 15-2, and 21-3 are game-winning ‘skunks. ‘ As if being ‘skunked’ isn’t bad enough, the skunkee may also be required to perform push-ups or drink two beers.”
Nope. If the serve hits the table tennis net and goes over, it is actually a fault. A let would be if it hits the net and hits the other side of the table as well.
