In a doubles tennis match, are you allowed to wave your racket around while your partner is receiving a serve to distract the serving opponent? Doubles strategy can depend on the landscape. It’s not illegal to spin your racket while the opponent is serving to your partner.
Hitting the ball through the middle of the court in doubles does quite a few things to hinder your opponent. It creates confusion as to which player will take the ball, it dramatically reduces the angle the opponent has to return the ball and it gives you the highest percentage chance to make the shot (The net strap is the lowest point on the net).

In recreational tennis it is often considered a coup among men to hit your opponent, but it is considered very rude play for a man to do this to a woman in mixed doubles. In serious tennis, it is considered just another strategy - of course in mixed doubles you hit at the women - are you going to hit at the men, who might hit it back harder?
