Bit off topic, but I didn't want to necro your 8 month old thread. Gotta say, I find it strange that everyone latched onto the idea of the racket dropped in your court to being a distraction. Pretty sure a racket on your side of the court could be considered an obstruction what with how most players probably would try to avoid stepping on someone elses racket (and therefore would be prevented from taking a legal shot). Meh, prolly a bit of stretch.

Sorry, this is for the one that is asking about follow through on net tap or smash.
Unless you are talking about quantum physic. When you are up at the net and excute a net tap or smash. 1) Which distance is shorter? the racquet to the net. or the net to the ground? 2) given the shuttle speed can not exceed the racquet head speed by more than 2 time, which even happens first? your racquet touch the net or the shuttle hits the ground?
Kids, please use your head and think before you ask.

sorry i didn't make my example clear. i meant the back court drop shot hit by your opponent didn't clear the net and your racket up swing hits the net after the shuttls has already hit the other side of the net.

Gotta say though, a lot of questions like these can be easily answered by a quick look at the laws of badminton >.>
It shall be a ‘fault’:
13.4 if, in play, a player:
13.4.1 touches the net or its supports with racket, person or dress;
15. SHUTTLE NOT IN PLAY
A shuttle is not in play when:
15.1 it strikes the net or post and starts to fall towards the surface of the court on the striker’s side of the net;

I don't think there needs to be much of an interval in the case of a drop shot as it's already going downwards.
The key part is "starts to fall towards the surface of the court", in a drop shot as soon as it hits the net it's falling.

Not always, if you're at the front and lift and it hits the net on the way up then it's still moving upwards so you don't know which side of the net it's going to land on therefore it's still in play. Happens with a hard smash as well when you hit the very top of the tape and the shuttle moves upwards before moving down again.
