there is rhythm for normal strokes. but there are times when you have to significantly speed up that rhythm not just by moving faster but also know how to shorten the stroke from the contact point. too often 1hbh is taught in a way that makes shortening the stroke very difficult. it's due to inefficient use of elbow of locking it up. so the shoulder always lead the stroke. when correctly shortened elbow should be able to lead the stroke but locked elbow prevent this. Fed is one example who can shorten his 1hbh and with great footwork he can return any serve.
