i am a very consistent player that "hitters" hate to play..But if i genually like my opponent that i just beat, i usually try to say sometning positive like "you were really tough" or "you never give up" instead of a put down phrase like "you need to develop a net game" etc
i do know another player whose main strategy is to lob even in baseline rallies. He wins a lot but many people and opponents who lose to him tell him he's not playing "the right way"
One thing that must be difficult for a player is to lose to someone you used to beat consistently..It's only happened to me once in my life but even though i liked the guy, i had a very hard time with it.
