I have a lot of topspin but I can control it better indoors (probably because I feel better balanced) But I love the fresh air (no wind, haha) and the sun (as long as I am not serving in it) I am sure I am not alone. I would imagine most people's game is better/more consistent indoors. But I could be wrong....
I find that during Outdoor play, it is much better if you use little more head light balanced racket. It is little more difficult to time the ball outdoors due to wind and other elements. If you have more head light racket, you can make the adjustments much quicker.
I recommend you Take off the Head guard during outdoor season to make the racket more head light. Or ,,, punch some Holes in the head guard to make it more light.
