If a ball is sliced low at you then you must lift it to get by the net man.
What about on the run to the the forehand? You slice that as well?
I'm not questioning you I'm just curious ?
Yes, I often slice my forehand to lift low balls over the net, especially on the run. It works great.
But if I get to the ball a bit earlier, I'll drive it flat with very little net clearance, especially in doubles in which I try to hit all shots very low over the net to make it more difficult for my opponents to hit aggressive volleys.
