There are as many answers as there are people. In my experience since none of us are doing tennis full time (as a profession) I would go with what suits your personality. I don't know you , but you seem like someone who enjoys analyzing situations and problem solving. If true, I would recommend #1 in my previous post (which is what you are already prepping for).
If you can wrap your mind around the idea that you are going to have various options to play a match, then you can focus on analyzing the other guy and less about your own strokes. This will free you from this "paralysis by overanalysis".
