I'm playing in a "4.0" league at a local club - non-USTA. In my last few matches I've had two opponents tell me that they prefer to play someone like me who hits with pace - in the middle of a match (I won both matches - one I just got by in 3 sets and the other timed out but I was up in game score). I find that really strange because then I'm tempted to take pace off the ball and junk it up since I know that don't like it. Also, it's not like I'm killing the ball - I'm a 3.5 so I can hit a fairly clean shot (on occasion...when the planets align), but I'm NOT cranking winners. So is there a point where hitting a clean ball is counter productive? I can mix it up a bit, but I'm not inclined to hit slice on every ball. I can see why dudes who play with alot of spins or just hit consitently deep without a lot of pace win a lot of matches. Seems like at my level, trying to kill the ball on most shots won't get you very far.
