>>> So your telling me that hitting the ball to the opposite feild causes you to lose power and you should concentrate on hitting it strait away or pulling it.<<<
I think I answered your question in the earlier exchange below. And as I also stated earlier, the direction the ball is hit should be more a matter of timing than of intention.
