Example of staight forward: Keeping the same stroke though out the game doesnt matter about pace or spin, just using one same stroke.

Variety: different stroke

What i mean is that some people i seen playing with used the same stroke though out game and some changes stroke while in game. Im not talking about being dimesonal or about the pro, i just wanted to know how you guy play?

Example of me: i hit variety, left to right for flatter shot or for the win and up to down for topspin to keep my oppenment off balance. Playing in with the Percentage.

Eample of staight forward: One of my friend hit flat always no matter what never topspin and alway flat serve. Ground stroke is alway left to right no matter how low or high the ball is. Same stroke consisteny.

I try to vary it and sometimes it works against me....

I slice a lot, off both wings.

I think I hit with variety. If I could just nail the ball off both sides, I probably would though. I hit with variety because I have to. I'm out of shape and my top spin backhand is unreliable.

Depends, I try to shorten my backswing. I hit with alot of topspin but for the most part I use the same stroke. right to left.

Any good player will use variety. I'm not gonna hit a flat approach shot off of a low ball, am I? No, I'm going to use heavy pace while putting heavy topspin to curve the ball in and get more of an angle for an example. This applies to all of my shots, especially my serve.

I definitely hit with a lot of variety lol. I usually hit medium paced shots with topspin but i change depending on situations such as slices, high shots, flat shots, and i also use different strokes

If I am hitting rather well, I prefer to play with variety, changing pace, height, and spin. If I'm having a hard time with consistency, though, I will focus on just hitting solid shots.

All variation in my strokes is unintentional.
