After today semifinals I think we all believe there should be a super risk shot for amazing powerful strokes, hands down to delpo and jerzy and those incredible forehands.

And i already said why i think it shouldnt drain stamina... i will say it again: imo risk shot is like a loose or win shot. i imagine dolgopolov returning services when he just stroke it for a winner and i dont think its somethign that takes energy from him. I think the risk shot is something a player with already no energy would use in order to finish a point, and not a stroke that can take you a lot of you. its a "i dont give a crap" shot , you dont put a lot of yourself in the shot, you just relax your arm and crash the ball. Also 75% is a lot.
On the other hand regular strokes require fewer energy than acceleration strokes because it does take more of yourself (everyone who plays tennis knows it )but i dont like to put the riskshot into this category although it should be very powerful. I hope you understand my point of view.
Im not a suckup since i join the forum i didnt stop writing suggestions for the game to manutoo.
I think you should read a little more carefully everything we both said in this topic. you cant get mad just because i agree in one thing with him and not with you haha and as i said above im all about implementing the risk shot...

That's arcade, we don't want that imo

Kind of playing devil's advocate here.

This is exactly the case though when it comes to the service success rate - it's entirely based on luck/attributes whether you dump your b1 or b1+b2 serve into the net or outside the service box.
It's also the case for stretching volleys, half-volleys, groundstrokes in danger zone etc. All of these can result in winners or very poor errors with no amount of user skill affecting the outcome.

Rob92,
there's no service that has only a 5% chance to pass & provides a sure ace in such case... ;)
Ground strokes in Danger Zone are always less effective (ie: speed loss)...
Doing half-volley winner usually means your opponent was standing too far from the baseline.
Although I see your point, but everything is a matter of dosage..! :yes:
