Where's the challenge in hitting a 10 foot high backspin shot on EVERY stroke? Sure - it was effective, he got the W... but can playing that way ever really be satisfying?

Kudos to the OP for "pushing" himself to become a better player. (See what I did there?) =)
Can playing that way ever be satisfying? If you keep winning with it, yes.
