I wanted to add a key point I learned selecting your string tension, and string setup. The most important shots for me to set my tension to are defensive ones. If I get pulled wide I can't just get the ball back over, but I need to get it back deep with a compact flick since that is all I have time for.
Any good player who is 4.5 or above will put away your short balls, and what seperates you from competing with them can sometimes boil down to not giving them any. While it is nice to have my forehand back, have heavier strokes, and better net clearance, the main thing that is winning me more points with this setup is if I get pulled wide, I can send back a deep reply and get right back into the point...just something to think about when tweaking string setups.
