I think it's because a shot doesn't necessarily need to go over the net, it can go past the net post. A shorter net allows that better.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

What's the website to check official Entry List for future tournaments? I think it used to be http://icontent.atpworldtour.com/acceptancelist/ but it's been off for some time.

Thanks, but do Suicide Tennis ranking points count towards Tennis Tipping rankings? Because I can see that having a good TT ranking is useful otherwise you always end up as an ALT. But I can't see any benefits to be had from a good Suicide Tennis ranking, because everyone gets in regardless.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

That's for ITF events. What about ATP tournaments?

No, it doesn't count towards anything else. Topping the ranking is a goal in itself - not everyone aims to do that, but certainly some do.
