It's a pleasant idea, and I already thought about it several times.
But I think it's a too hard concept for novice players, and actually, that's not so realistic.
In real life, the ball position from your body will have influence on the direction you can easily shot it, but usually, any good position will let you send the ball anywhere you want.
With my average skills, on a real court, I can put (almost) easily the ball cross court on my fore hand, running in the opposite direction (but on my back hand, it's a lot more tricky :p ).
Anyway, it's possible I'll conduct some gameplay tests in next versions, to propose different handling of your player, as an option.
Thanks for your comment !
