Most of the time it will go wide or to the middle of the court (as if the aiming doesn't have any effect). Sometimes, with no aiming (leaving joystic in the middle position), wide angle shots can be made based on pure timing.

I still can't figure out the proper control behavior.

Same for serving, good timing on the button push only seem makes sure you get good speed and if it's long/short. To position the ball down the T or wide is not intuitive. Do I flick the joystick or do I need to initiate the joystick movement at the right time?

Dream Match Tennis's controls are hard to figure out (for me).....
For aiming shots it's a matter of where you're standing in relation to the ball and how early or late you swing.

For serving to aim it I would press the direction button right before I'm about to hit the ball. But you can't hold it down too early or for too long or else it will go way wide.
