Heavy ball is the PERCEPTION of the returner!
Everyone is more or less used to extreme topspin, so they can hit those high incomers.
Some people have trouble with skidders or lower balls, thus HEAVIER for them. Maybe not to you or me, but to THEM.
That's why TommyHaas and Federer have sliced backhands incorporated into their normal groundie game.
