Well this is how it goes for me. I use the "sit and lift" method on my strokes, especially the forehand. Virtually zero arm swing, just using the arm to guide. The more I push of the ground with my legs the faster my arm naturally comes forward. Sometimes after a well placed ball, I'll have the chance to hit a winner, and based on my mechanics, ill end up in the air and hit thru the ball crazy hard. Sometimes I don't end up in the air. Don't micro manage, but always remember to push off the ground for that rotational energy and kinetic chain. If you end in the air, so be it. If not, fine too. Djokovic and Federer do this all the time.
