Here is one of the pics of the smart targets thanks to BU.
you can see the triangles
There are very good times to hit down the middle if you can keep it strong, deep,
or both; like returning a very tough serve or even hard GS.
Hitting down the middle weak and short is the best way to get in trouble in
the point...allows them to use their strengths against your weakness immediately.
These targets are designed to give you easy ideas on where to go and not to
go, sort of as a default if there is no overriding issue. As the other poster just
stated, they are designed to give you max safety margin while still being aggressive.
