loft the ball with an initial speed of 15.0 m/s at an angle of 50.0° the horizontal. At this instant your opponent is 10.0 m away from the ball. He begins moving away from you 0.38 s later, hoping to reach the ball and hit it back at the moment that it is 2.10 m above its launch point. With what minimum average speed must he move? (Ignore the fact that he can stretch, so that his racket can reach the ball before he does.)
