    one of my friends asked me:

    when serving, if my racket didn't hit the base of the shuttle first!
    the umpire called a "fault",but the umpire pointed out "
    9.1.3 the server�s racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle"
    instead of the right one:"9.1.4 the server�s racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle"

    in this situation,can I call the referee and asking for a "let"??


    IMHO,I think it still be a "Fault"!!

    one more question:
    can I just say:" you didn't hit the base of the shuttle first! it's a fault"
    rather than saying:"9.1.4 the server’s racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle"
    do I have to point out the words in red exactly??

    THX! ^^

    no none will quiz you on the laws if you are an umpire, usually i just do the hand signal if the player doesnt understand i will just explain the problem to him no quoting required.
