Hi All, I teamed up with this guy in doubles who advised me to soften up the return stroke when opponent hits with great force, as if to have better control of the ball, and to hit hard and deep when the opponent's stroke is short/weak. In other words the forces between us are complementing each other instead of going head to head. However, I also notice that if I put a good force into my swing to an strong incoming ball, I'd have better control, sort of like I overwhelm and dictate the shot. I hope I make sense. What do you think?
