Did your opponent have an apparent weakness? Is his backhand as accurate as his forehand? If not I would just keep hitting to his backhand. What about his second serve? If weak, then I would hit hard to his weaker side and take control of the point. If he is extremely accurate, he might pass you every time you come to the net. As mentioned earlier, use variety and see how he handles that. Some players are not as accurate if you use different spins, pace, etc. Is his level way above yours, like 5.0? If so then you might not be ready to beat a player like this yet. Also, you can read Allen Fox's book Think to Win: The Strategic Dimension of Tennis for tennis strategy and also Brad Gilbert's book Winning Ugly for additional tips.
