Assume I hit a forehand lob shot from the back corner right along the wall - and my opponent is somewhere behind me out of sight. After hitting, I immediately turn to give him access to make his shot, which he choses to hit in the corner rather than on the wall, but I find he has run up onto me pinning me in the corner. He then calls a let.

Is he creating his own interference by not allowing me to get out of the way? In this situation, he would not miss the shot if he waited for me to move away.

Hi Greg

As you probably know, once your shot hits the front wall, your opponent then becomes 'the striker' and you are required to "make every effort" to get out of his way - he shouldn't have to "wait for you to move away".

However, if he has deliberately taken an indirect route and run into you, or is crowding you as you make your shot, this would usually be deemed "creating his own interference" if he cannot then get to the ball and he should not normally get a let (this can happen when your shot was too good and he is trying to 'milk' a let). However, if you had 'wrong-footed' him, causing him to accidentally run into you, if he was still in a position to recover and retrieve the ball, this could be a let.

It's also unlikely this would be a stroke against you (if you had "made every effort"), as it is unlikely he would have hit a winner from the back of the court.

Anyway, I agree with Ron - probably a let (sorry, no certainty unless I can see the replay!)
