a guy told me last year to hit stingers into the corners to do well in my B level 4.0 tournament... unfortunately i don't have access to him this year. but i was wondering about the strategy and spin.. do people know the expression "stinger"?.... i think it was to basically poke a flat shot into the corner (preferably backhand corner) and come in behind it (or at least get a nice soft, short return to set up a winner)...... my basic question is this: is flat often better than topspin in that it has more disguise?.... if i'm going to hit a big topspin shot into the corner, isn't it going to be obvious where i'm hitting the ball with my big windup...... also, flat can in theory get to the spot faster than topspin, although you probably hit topspin harder. thanks in advance for any insight into this??
