For example, attacking the backhand works at a lot of levels, and i do that myself, but relying on mistakes from the opponent and trying to open up the court more with angles is when things get a little deeper. If you hit heavy looping spin it gives time back to the opponent as opposed to risking a little more, hitting lower trajectory balls.
But why take the risk? Heavy looping topspin is not easy to attack at all IMO unless it is short. Hitting heavy spin CC is a very safe shot and difficult to attack which is why its a very popular style of play. Also if use 5623's smart targets and hit some sharper CC with your topspin, not only will you not miss as much, you'll run your opponent into the ground

Tennis is a percentages game. It's all about the percentages
