Into the net? Control is subjective...it is whatever you do with the ball. There is no such thing as "control" in physics, just speeds, spins, and angles. You can adjust for any rebound from the stringbed by altering your stroke, if you have to. Control is a combination of stroke and setup, and the combinations are endless.
