In my last couple of matches I've been doing this more and it has resulted in much more effective approach shots. But they're not just chips, they're driving slightly undercut backhands or forehands with pretty good pace that have very low net clearance, go deep, and skid. Very difficult for my usual opponents (generally, anything from 4.0 down) to handle ... even if I hit those shots right back at them.
