Stupid rules question

In a match today, I hit a dropper that bounced 4 times on the net cord... and finally dropped over after a few seconds...

I was wondering what the ruling is, if the balls stays on the net cord. Has that ever happened in a match?

It counts. Actually ironically, almost the same thing happened to me today . My friends and I were playing Canadian doubles and my friend hit a drop shot which spun on the net cord for like 3 seconds before dropping into our court. It was actually pretty amazing

If the ball stays on the net cord forever you lose the point, since when you hit the ball it has to reach your oponnent`s side.

If this ball is sitting on the net cord is there a time limit for how long it can stay there before a ball person is told to get it or does everyone have to wait until there is some quantum effect and it falls off? Otherwise the match would make a Conchita special look short by comparison?

It doesn't matter how long it stays on the net cord, lol. and fammmedspin, if you ever do see a ball that lands on the netcord and just refuses to go over on either side, call guiness because that has never ever happened before!

lol @ fammmmedspin. As long as the ball lands on the other side of the court, going over the net, its all good
