Best Answer

It doesn't. You typically want to hit the ball in the center of the racket, or a little bit towards the tip of the racket. Hitting near the edge of a racket produces sidespin, which makes your ball inconsistent and probably slows the ball down because it won't penetrate the court like a normal top-spin shot.
