His UE rate is very high, but his cc forehand is aggressive and consistent - I avoid forehand rallies with him because its hard to keep up. I think his style/strategy is junk but he made it onto a college team with that. I just try to stay consistent at 70-80% of his speed, hit some shots he doesn't like, and put him in situations where he goes for those slim winners, and watch the UE's pile up
Then your friend is not a true mindless attacker I described. If he keeps his UE down he may get something going here
