I've actually never thought of this from a physics point of view. But when I want to go down the line - I agree with the coach - hit the back of the ball. I think you are leaving the effect of impact on the ball out of your equation.

If you just leave the racquet there then angles you are taking about will be correct. But if you hit the ball - angles will get changed.

This is just a guess from a low level player!
