    Agreed Bill,

    This thread has inspired me to take more of an interest in learning technique. It is very interesting and I know it will make me go mad in the end. I am particularly interested in pro's techniques and will try to add bits of there game into mine.

    Not change anything, that could work.

    technique is important in all levels.

    at low level play, unforced errors are more common than forced errors. person with less unforced error...wins

    at high level play, it's about forcing your opponet making bad shots. you make them run and mix up your shots. By throwing off their timing and dissecting their technique.
    The person with that forces more errors wins.

    Without biomechanically sound technique you cannot implement the tactical plan! That's why technique is important. No question about that.

    The problem is in matches when you are on the run and don't have time to hit the ball with perfectly sound technique and have to adjust. This is where alot of club players struggle when making the adjustments when they are in uncomfortable situations that you just can't teach when feeding balls. I do agree that techique is very important but just that it is often overtaught and over-emphasized. Being flexible and willing to try new things is really the key to improving and finding the correct technique.
