If you can win one set, there is no reason you can't win the match.
If you can win the match, you SHOULD win the match.
i agree with your thinking , a lot of people think the pros hit a different ball then the college or top Jr.s and trust me I have checked the can myself at a pro event , it is without a doubt the same ball that comes out of a can at a high level jr event ,
