You make things too complicated. Forget the WW thing. Just drive through the ball with racket face open or slightly closed. When the ball goes to the net, your instinct should activate and you want to swing upward as if to drive the ball higher to clear the net. Pros don't care about WW. They drive through the ball like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8FoCRbd8bg
