Or is this just me and that's my own style to change up my game?

Most people will make tactical adjustments to minimize the damage, but usually only allcourt players can successfully change strategies mid-game. An example of this is Edberg, he came to net on every first serve and chipped every second serve no matter how badly he was using. That sort of mental tenacity combined with a high pressure game can cause an opponent to crack and lose their winning edge and it saved Edberg as many times as it doomed him.
