That Agassi example ^^ is extreme.
I divide it out by on the rise, at the top, and on the drop.
Imo it is lower % to try it on more vertical bounces, and high % against
harder flatter shots, but try excessive topsin doing this.
Seems to me the more vertical is way tougher to time, where as the other you
can match the swing plane more to the bounce.
