P.S. You do hit good, I can just tell, if you choose to, you can be better.
I understand what you are saying but I think with my current way I hit the ball, if I go any higher, balls will start landing behind the baseline. I think most of my normal shots have fair clearance (at least I feel it that way) and the ones that go lower are usually flatter. I need to put more topspin to my forehand to make this effective for me.
