Hitting the net. Unless it drops on opponent's side, in that case I love it

Hitting the net.. If it lands out but was kind of close, I see it as a positive error in terms of playing aggressively (or at least try to ). But hitting the net is just lame and I feel I should have timed it better. Same with serves...

I hate hitting the ball into the net more. If you do it too much, you may be tiring and not fully hitting your strokes.

Re: What do you hate more: Hitting the net or hitting it out?

Strange question... Obviously it depends on which shot one is making
Second serve fault into the net is more stupid mistake than long
On first serve about equal
Long on a passing shot is sillier than into the net.
Overhead into the net is as silly as it gets
Into the net in a rally, when the opponenet is at base line, is sillier than long, unless it is a slice
With volley it depends at which height the ball is struck - on a low one it makes more sense to play low and risk hitting the net, than to risk an out long by raising it as high sitter to be killed. The opposite for a high volley, unless it is a sharp angle cross-court
And so on ...

Kinda surprised at the responses so far, because if you hit the net there's a chance of it going over for net-cord

Hitting long is always better than hitting the net.

It depends. If I hit a flat shot which clips the tape, I feel better than I do sending a moonball into the back fence.

Hitting out is not so bad, you have good potentials to improve your tennis. Hitting the net is not so good, you need to change some fundamentals.

Depends. Normal groundstrokes should be clearing the net by a couple of feet, so if I am dumping those into the net it’s a fairly major error. Far more than missing the court by a foot or two.

Re: What do you hate more: Hitting the net or hitting it out?

Good subject! I have always thought a lot about this. I used to really hate hitting the net more but the more experienced I get, it doesn't really matter to me. All misses are equally frustrating!

I will add, when I first started watching tennis matches as a young boy, and before I ever played the game, I got more mad when the players would hit the net. I was always like "Wow, at least get it over." After actually playing the game, I understand how it happens.

Hitting the net. Because you are expecting it to go deep because you are really swinging and putting effort and concentration, then you hit the net. Kinda of shocking every time.

Hitting the net. Always better to have good shape on the ball rather than have control of depth. You can reign in your depth as you warm up but if you're hitting the ball into the net your trajectory is just wrong and still yet you don't even know if your ball was going to go into the court or long!
