If you come out and hit that hard, you give away the match. I'd just slice you and save my energy and watch the UE's pile up personally.
If you are timing the ball right, you will be cracking the ball pretty hard and staying in that 70-80% range. Your UE's will also go down as well.
This is the right advise, 70-80% is just about right. I have won a lot of matches using PP tactics against young all out gunslinger type players. Keep the ball in the court move them around some and mix up the spins, most of the time they will give you the match without a lot work on your part.
