I was thinking that the other day, only about physics! Olivier Rochus lobs Ivo Karlovic with speed of X and angle of Y from a height of Z above the ground, if Karlovic has reach A, will he be able to deliver a smash or will he be forced to resort to a tweener from the baseline?

We got "X kicks a football; where does it land?" questions of this sort in my classes, but tennis would be so much more fun!
