This is a silly post. Much too black and white. I hit through the ball but still hit with a lot of top. So many ways to hit the ball.
So you saw a guy hit with too much spin..it happens. The guy can fix that and hit a little more clean.
Nothing is really overrated in tennis. There are so many variables that to pinpoint just one aspect of the game is small minded.
