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 ...
