But then, you're now playing 5.0 and better tennis.
In the pro player level, lots of guys can choose to hit softer and be more consistent....and get beat by a hard hitter. They have to balance their defense with some amount of offense.
YOU and I, being mostly 4.0, can get better by learning how to hit harder. We can win more matches right now by pushing also. Which is your preference?
It's not like any of us are really going pro anyway...
