In practice games what's your approach: A: Play as in a league match and try to win no matter what? B: Play aggressively, not caring about W/L, while pushing the envelope on technique? I have many friends who take approach A. They win lots of practice games but over the last year+ they seem to play the same or even more conservatively! One friend who used to complain about lack of pace and passive play has become the Perfect Pusher in her league play (3.5 women's singles)...she wins constantly as a result but she CAN'T hit with pace now...everything is a floater to the middle. And she plays the same way in practice! I start out a session using approach A for a couple of games to find my "foundation" but then I switch to B to build confidence when hitting more aggressively in match play. And so even though I've been playing for a much shorter period of time than my Fellow low level friends I can now serve better (no dinky waiter-second serve...a proper kick serve)...and I can T-off on floaters quite well. It just seems like such a waste playing a "conservative match game" during an entire practice. Is there a benefit to taking that approach for an entire session? Should I be doing that? The funny thing is since I've focused on hitting winners off floaters I can easily win games by patiently waiting for the usual dinker-floater seen in low level play...I just don't see the point of doing that during an entire practice session.
