It Counts As 3 Points!

Most players agree that if you win a spectacular rally or win an easy point, it just counts as one point. BUT actually, they don’t…
 
Let me give you a scenario.  You are winning 9-7 in the final game.  You serve short topspin and your opponent reads your serve as backspin.  He steps forward and pushes your short topspin serve giving you an incredibly easy popup.  At point-blank range, it would have been nearly impossible for him to return your powerful weapon, BUT unfortunately for you…   you miss your smash!
