I'm not taking sides here....and I understand your desire for the purity of the sport over technology.

However the answer to your question is : no.

All shots even flat shots have some spin on it.

I grant you that a ball coming in waist high you will hit flat with the same RPM regardless of the type of string.

However not all bounces are created equal....for example if someone hits a low skidding slice at you then you must lift that ball to get it over the net. It cannot be hit flat.
