Is it a fault if...?
I was watching a game between Peter Gade and Chen Hong when the following situation occurred.
In a net exchange Peter Gade played a net shot and the shuttle hit the tape. The base hit the tape, the feathers were up, but the shuttle did not cross the net. Chen Hong brushed the shuttle from the top of the net, hitting only the feathers and appearing to hit the shuttle before it had crossed the net. Peter appealed to the umpire that the shuttle had been hit before it crossed the net. The umpire awarded the point to Chen Hong.
What do you think shoiuld have happened?
And do you need any more information to make your decision?

According to the rules, the initial point of hitting the shuttle should be on the hitter's side. That's all. There is no need for the whole shuttle to pass the net.
Therefore if Chen Hong waited until at least one peace of feather was on his side for the kill and he didn't touch the net, the umpire was right.

kewl. If that is true, then the rule of hitting the cork first only apply to serving. It make sense, i have seen many situation where the shuttle is push back down before the whole shuttle fly or roll over the tape. This does require very good touch since the risk of hitting tape with racket is high. I experienced an situation where i did that but the opponent claimed that i have touched the tape with my racket where it was really the shuttle hit the tape on my reply tap.

Cooler, the rule of hitting cork first only apply to service. Introduced to prevent players from using the 'S' serve.

Best I can do is some pics of the TV.
From rewatching, I don't think Chen touched the shuttle, so the umpire was right.
WWC brings up the point I alluded to in the first post.
A shuttle is not in play when it strikes the net or post and starts to fall towards the surface of the court on the striker's side of the net.
If the shuttle had started to fall and Chen HAD hit it, it would not be a fault because the shuttle would not have been in play.
Whether or not it had started to fall would be a very difficult call for the umpire to make though.

The photos are great but anyway I think it is not clear enough to have a proper judgment. From that far even a really small angle of the camera towards the net may cause bad position. Only the umpire sitting exactly in line is able to have a proper view (assuming that he was ready).
But basing on what Neil written I can hardly believe that CH didn’t touch the shuttle or the net. Peter Gade wouldn’t complain about the decision if CH would have smash the air and shuttle didn’t pass the net simply because it was bad net drop delivered.
I don’t think that mentioned 15.2 rule was applied here by the umpire. If CH was able to hit/touch the feathers above the net it is unlikely that shuttle already “started to fall down”. It happens quite often that cork hits the tape, feathers go up and finally the shuttle passes the net. Maybe if CH didn’t executed his stroke PG would win the rally.
I feel that umpire’s decision was right.
