i mean, i don't think you should be pegging it at her head or face (topaz, sorry about that one time in practice haha) -- but if you're dipping it at her feet -- or if both players are at net and you have the option...then yeah, it's totally fair game...if my mixed partner is getting hit at consistently, then i feel like i'm not doing my job to protect her (aka hitting deep / hitting good enough 2nd serves or just doing my job in general to make sure we are winning more points)
