Angle of Reflection in tennis

When professional tennis players serve , the ball usually goes anywhere from 120 to 163.4 MPH (fastest recorded in history) which is pretty darn fast. They try to serve the ball as close to the net as they can so their opponent has a harder time of returning it. The closer to the net makes it so the angle to the incident is greater. The bigger the angle of incident is, the closer the ball is to the ground because it is measured against a right angle with the ground. If there is a small angle of incident, that means the ball bounces more vertically and is easier for the opponent to put away and possible smash into your face which is their point. That is why tennis players try to get the ball as close to the net as they can.
