      A good question to ask. Generally whatever sets up for a ball you like factoring in what you opponent can do well and what not.

      If you're a topspin to topspin player (so many of these types at my...

      Agreed. By and large opponents that give me trouble typically are killing me on serve possibly setting up easy 3rd balls.

      So generally i think "just neutralize" on their serve. Whether I'm giving...

      Nicknames I think are by & large corney and something of the past in sports. It's dated.

      Most stars don't really go by nicknames. Rather an abbreviation of their initials or just calling them by...

      This largely influences one's direction. I play close to USATT 2000 and am about 50/50 with one of our club's traveling tournament players who is at that level. (realizing that styles vary. I...

      A good Q.

      I'm a penholder and he likes to serve long & fast to my BH with light backspin. I can loop it with RPB but my % of point wins on that is probably lower than a good TPB push/chop. I get...

      Well variety is the best solution. Keeping your opponent off balance in what you're doing.

      It kinda depends on what you are good at and what your opponent isn't.

      I'm guessing the OP has thought of this and have thought "This high arching ball will get killed on me." but hasn't actually done it all that often. Otherwise he would see the usefulness...

      I've recently discovered the power of the push. Particularly on service return. Don't get me wrong, I like to, and think it's important to attack serves when you can but overall I find I'm playing my...

      Just out of curiosity, have you guys ever been in a bit of a slump and what'd you do to break out of it?

      Problem with winning % is that then it's based on outside factors. Then it boils down to the quality of pros at the time they're playing.

      I think we need to either agree on (fat chance of that happening right?) or accept that we're all using different metrics to call the greatest of all time.

      Fair enough. But his point was that he felt they did it half heatedly and I think it's a little ridiculous to expect a lot more of them outside of just doing it which they do.
