I was involved in a racquet clash today, and both me and the other party insist that it's the other person's fault, so I'm going to try and get some second opinions and see where it goes. In the interests of fairness I'm NOT going to say which party I am. A and B are playing doubles, A is on the backhand (left) side, B is on the forehand (right) side. A receives the first shot, and goes to the forward right of the court. The return is to midcourt, down the middle. B goes for the shot which is B's forehand, A moves back and goes for the same shot with his backhand. A gets there first, hits, and simultaneously B clashes his racquet with A. B's racquet is broken. B says it's A's fault, as it was B's forehand, and B was already standing there waiting for it. A says it's B's fault, as B was the one who hit A's racquet which was there first. What would you say? A's fault? B's fault? Or 50/50? Should A pay for B's racquet, or should A tell B to go to hell? Cheers!
