Of course they do but it is weak.
It is like playing the long ball game in football because you do not have the ability for passing and moving.
What do you do when you are outclassed generally in a big match? Play long ball, tackle hard, hope to get lucky.
What do you do on the practice ground? Play football, pass move and practice scoring and moving the ball.
Slicing back returns is an inferior and weak play to hitting topspin groundies as a return.
