Topspin =/= loopy. Look at Federer, he gets the 2nd most amount of RPMs on the tour and he's not just hitting loopers. Once you start trying to hit through the court with a lot of pace, you NEED the topspin to keep it in.
Exactly. I have really flattened out my trajectory lately, and the spin is still on the ball. Both can be done.
