Kei Nishikori will always remember his opening match at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro for an incredible episode.

What happened?

Kei was already leading 1 set against Albert Ramos when he dropped the racket soon after serving on the deuce court. Eventually, the Japanese showed incredible reflexes to pick up the racket and engage in an amazing rally that he won at the net.

Finally, Nishikori won the match 6-2 6-4.

I understand that if the racket (or even your dampener) does not fall into the opponent`s court, it`s NOT a hindrance and the point should continue.

It has happened to Kyrgios and Del Potro. I think it`s legal and he doesn`t constitute hindrance because it is not deliberate
