I did consider that, but how would it be possible to know? Depends how high you can kick the ball... or is there technically a maximum "legal height" for a ball? Though that would be pretty difficult to enforce. Hence you can only really give a point-to-point answer.
I guess you could kick it to one corner and then a strong gust of wind could send it right back to the original corner doubling the length... but then maybe the wind suddenly changes direction and sends it back yet again.
