Ball clipping net in tennis

Out but in

June is playing doubles and an opponent hits a lob. The ball is coming down, clearly out of the doubles court, but clips the net and then bounces into the doubles court. June’s partner misses the ball. June says that the ball was clearly going out, so her team should get the point. June’s opponent says that the point is theirs since the ball ultimately landed in.

Who is correct?
