This is what I've always said. Yes topspin is an important element but it is not the end all be all that we think it is. Most people don't do near the damage the think they do with "all" their topspin. What people fail to understand is that all the better players seem to hit with a lot of topspin today and we are used to responding to it. No one ever beat me because of their massive topspin, and I often play on red clay. Who here will admit to being beat by someone just because they put too much topspin on the ball and he/she couldn't handle it?
