I hear ya. In my case, I can tell what I am doing wrong in tennis, or golf, by the end result. If my strokes lack pace, I know I am spinning too much and hitting through too little. Sometimes I intentionally load up the top spin just because it gives a lot of people fits.

Would Spadea tell Rafa to hit through more on his FH?
