Guide to Beat Power Players:
----------------------------
Written by Milos Moralovic

-=How-To=-
Hi everyone, Iím a Top Spin veteran with past top 100 rankings, and Iíve been
playing Top Spin for longer than the average redditor has been alive. Iím 
currently top 300 (havenít played as much as Iíd like) and Iíve been beating 
the ďpower metaĒ players, including #34, long before I got to level 30. Iíve 
also been #1 in the world in two football (soccer) games. I say this to NOT to
brag, but to tell you where my advice is coming from.

So you wanna beat the power meta? Hereís what you need to do.

The difficult to swallow truth Ė you must perfect return serves most of the time:
A lot of people who complain about power in Top Spin are actually complaining 
about service returns without realizing it.

Perfect returning serves is an essential Top Spin skill for high level play. 
While newer players may struggle with the difficulty of serving with the analog 
stick, once you get used to it itís easy to pull off god tier serves. So as a 
result, the defending player has to pull off god tier returns.

This is tricky but with practice it will become second nature.

When returning, position yourself a couple of small steps behind the baseline. 
As your opponent is about to hit their serve, push up on the stick and start 
moving to the baseline. When you hit the ball you want to be at the baseline 
for an aggressive return, or just past it.

Unless you are standing in a truly terrible spot, this method allows you to forget 
about everything else going on and just focus on staring at your meter for perfect 
timing, or at the ball bounce, depending on whether you turn off the meter or not. 
IMO the meter makes serve returning way easier than the past, but itís down to 
personal preference.

Youíre gonna need to return the serve with a slice or top spin. Sometimes people 
struggle with being late on starting their shot, so what you can do is just 
immediately start holding top spin or slice as the serve comes at you. Aim all 
the way to the left or all the way to the right, depending on where the server is. 
You want your return to go to their side, not the empty space. This will give you 
time to reposition and can sometimes be a tricky shot for the server. Instead of 
the server dominating their service game, you are forcing a rally and sometimes 
even gaining immediate control after the return. Itís absolutely what you need 
to do against really good servers.

It might sound odd that you should return towards the server basically, but itís 
crucial. If your opponent is good and your return to empty space, your shot isnít 
going to be that good and your opponent will just whip one down the line.

Now when should you slice vs top spin? It depends on your opponent. I usually 
pick my backhand as the slice and my forehand as the top spin at the start of a 
match. Usually that means when Iím on the left side Iím slicing to the right. 
When Iím on the right side, Iím top spinning to the left.

Personally, I prefer to slice all the way to one side and also aim diagonally 
down sometimes, so itís closer to the net and not as deep. For top spin I like 
to send it towards the top corner, so itís very deep. But youíll have to play 
around with this because every opponent is different.

By the way, Iím doing all of this with 60 reflexes, 50 stamina, and 62 speed. I 
donít even have the third skill or any level 3 items equipped, I only hit level 
30 today.

Power players are only good when theyíre in control. So take it away from them 
with good timing
If the power player controls your positioning, youíre absolutely dead in the water. 
If you can perfect most serve returns, the rally starts either contested or 
sometimes even with you in power. After you return the serve, unless you have an 
ezpz opening, you now have to make the power player run.

All you really need to do is hit well timed balls cross court in the corners or 
to the sides. If you can do this, the power player is on the backfoot and wonít 
even have time to actually power up their shots. Youíll either win in a quick 
rally or theyíll strugglebus a bunch of shots for a while with you eventually 
finding an easy opening.

When you want to force the power player to run around, use deep or shallow top 
spin cross court balls. Or if youíre hitting from near the center of the court, 
do the same with flat shots. It really is that ďsimple,Ē itís just that your 
timing needs to be good which takes a lot of practice to be fair. Donít forget 
you can aim until that last possible nanosecond of your shot, so you can always 
change your mind at the end if you see your opponent moving.

If you need timing practice, stop dodging Sharapovas or level 30 power players. 
Play with them to get a feel for things. Power in Top Spin is ALWAYS going to 
be super important, even if they nerf it in the current game.

-=Is Power Actually Broken?=-
The game is barely out. No one knows. The truth is that power is just a super 
easy playstyle, and My Player or World Tour or whatever itís called started on 
clay courts, so itís even easier to play power. The % of overall players who 
are fully maxxed out with equipment, coaches, and levels, is super low. If you 
are getting wrong or flat footed, thatís your fault, thatís not a sign of power 
being OP. It just means your positioning was either too fast, too slow, or 
straight up you went to the wrong side (or were forced to guess).

My gut feel? Perhaps it may be a little overtuned, but also no one out there is 
actually trying Reflex builds. In Top Spin 4 you could basically do service 
returns that would be considered the greatest returns of all time on a consistent
 basis. My best guess is that you can do that in this game and the same to power 
shots with good reflexes. I say this because mine are 60 and Iím already pulling 
off things that are very close to what I was doing in 4.

Anyway, timing and aim are always the most important things in Top Spin. If you 
play and practice enough, youíll get good at that and power players wonít trouble 
you so much. Top Spin is a great game but you have to remember itís not truly a 
sim. You can pull off GOAT shots on a consistent basis if your timing and aim is 
good. Even with shoddy positioning/bad shot selection. Hope some of you find 
this helpful, cheers!

-=Bonus Tip=-
If you are not in control of the rally, play behind the baseline! This will help
 potentially give you more time to reorganize yourself. Players donít drop shot 
often, you donít really have to worry about that too much.
