I guess that is what they do, see and recognize. Maybe when they face
strong TS with lower trajectory, maybe they don't recognize the TS that is on
I think that it's most likely because most people on here probably aren't playing people who can hit flat trajectory heavy topspin shots. Most rec players have to choose between hitting flat with pace or slow, loopy, and spinny.
However, obviously this doesn't have to be the case. If anyone has seen ground level camera angles of Federer playing, you can easily tell. 2nd most RPMs on tour, yet hits very penetrating shots. It's all in the technique.
