Agreed. If the server wants to rush, no need for the receiver to have to hurry back to the line.
There was an earlier post about momentum control which is good. When winning play aggressive and at your own pace or quickly. When losing play within your base game, choose your spots for aggressive play and slow the match down. There's a lot more nuance behind the concept, but it's certainly not gamesmanship, Tennis 101.
