How high over the net should I play?

 

 

Watching a tennis match it is clearly visible that the main goal of this sport is to hit the ball over the net, and inside the court. You can win just one point at the time, and each one of them is counted in the same way. It doesn’t matter if you hit a beautiful winner from the baseline or if your opponent made an easy mistake because the result is always the same – one point won.
