That suggestion is to address the scores of club players who hit tentative strokes, which become even more tentative during a match. Telling them to obey the finish of the follow through as a key stroke point does not often help. This way, they have something concrete to aim for (no pun).
The fallacy lies in thinking that these guys who learnt tennis in their late thirties are otherwise going to be generating massive RHS and finishing like Fed and Nadal, making precise contact with the high bouncing away incoming topspin, with the correct mixture of up, forward, and across movement to achieve the desired CC or DTL stroke. Not!
