For Groundstrokes: At a half court distance from the wall (approx. 40–42′) it's better practice to have a two bounce rythym between shots.

If the center of the ball is closer to the wall than the radius of the ball, then there is a force pushing on the ball perpendicular to the wall.
If the ball hits the ground before it hits the wall, the player must touch the wall before the ball does. This is because the ball becomes anyone's ball, and therefore anyone can pick it up and throw it off the wall. If you get out, you are placed in a waiting list. The first person to get out will be replaced by the person that gets out after him.
A tennis racquet's strings are highly elastic and thus exert a strong restoring force on a ball when it impacts the strings, which helps add to the impulse delivered to a tennis ball when it is hit. A tennis ball is relatively inelastic compared to a the strings of a tennis racquet.
