But you can see that for one hour (3600 sec.) divided by the time for a drive (1.504 sec), gives us 2394 or 39.9 drives/hr.
You divided further by 60 so that's 39.9 drives per minute.
Still a ridiculous figure, even if you divide by 2 for your opponent's return.
You can't even get that from a ball machine because you have to stop and reload.

This started out as a legitimate question, but has become a fish-slapping dance.
