I'm wondering what do you do in this situation? During the game both are going to smash. What happens? Player B smashes unfortunately 0,5 Seconds after Player A and hit the Player A's racket (from behind) which is broken after this unlucky action. You feel sorry for him even if wasn't obviously your mistake. On the other hand there are two players there who are playing the game together with this known risk. a) You excuse yourself for this unlucky action - that's it. b) you additionally tell him you are going to buy him a new one c) you additionally propose to divide the costs (50:50) for his new racket d) you don't care. That's life. e) ... (others) How is your reaction after a racket crash with a broken racket as result?
