Stop the bullshit about them being slow. Also they don't take topspin very
well at all. But the low slice is very effective weapon. Basically rewards
attacking players who hit flatter like Blake, Del Potro.

I agree with your post except the flat hitters.
Flat shots slow and hang in the air after it bounces. The ball needs
some front spin plus the flat hitting to pass the ball through the
opponent.

There are many types of topspin, many people will consider Nadal's
spin a normal topspin, of course it's not.

When Nadal hits his topspin, his racquet almost swings in a vertical
plane.
Other players that we call they hit flatter than Nadal they swing
their racquet in an almost horizontal plane brushing the top of the
ball, this results in a different spin than Nadal's, more forward spin
than top/high spin.
Federer's swing in different, Federer's racquet swings in a horizontal
plane but the face of the racquet is tilted like 45 degrees and swings
forward to hit flat shot (no brushing except short balls), the front
movement results in a flatter shot while the the angle causes a
forward spin component that accelerates the ball.

The front moving tilted racquet is equivelant to pure flat shot and
top horizontal brushing movement.

you won't find anybody that hits purely flat in today's game. the
operative term is flatter not flat.

So you need to hit the ball both flat and with topspin - how exactly
do you go about doing that?
