Nope, exactly the opposite.
My strength in ladies play is spin, as most 3.5/4.0 women hit flat and are not used to dealing with spin. I hit slice and topspin serves, only. I hit topspin moonballs. I stand in close for weak serves, hit sharp topspin angles, and hit the approach volley in the gap.
None of this -- not one bit of it -- works in mixed 8.0. Guys are quite used to spin and they have overheads.
It ain't pretty, my friend.
