In the football case the trial found the defendant lacked specific intent to injure. All of these must be analyzed under whether or not the plaintiff consented. I think whether the injury was caused by a negligent, reckless, or intentional act only matters in so far to what was consented.

After a practice is over there is no longer any consent to be exposed to the risks of serving (certainly a reasonable jury could conclude that after the practice ended the plaintiff no longer consented to the risk of neglegently/recklessly hit tennis balls their way).
