Dead-ball serves do not cancel any previous fault serve. The following are dead-ball serves:
(a) Court Hinders. A serve that takes an
irregular bounce because it hit a wet spot or an irregular surface on
the court is a dead-ball serve. In addition, any serve that hits any
surface designated by local rules as an obstruction rather than being
(b) Broken Ball. If the ball is determined
to have broken on the serve, a new ball shall be substituted and the
serve shall be replayed, not canceling any prior fault serve.
