I know the returner(s) is not aiming malaciously and just taking advantage of the opportunity (so I think).
My question: Is it wrong to hit directly at the net person?
def part of the game. By playing tennis, one is indirectly consenting to the normal risks associated with playing the sport....one of which is getting nailed by a ball during play.
