1- center your strikes in ur cord to avoid the length handicap
2- use the slice, it's slow & more often deep enough to give u time to reposition urself correctly when ur overwhelmed...

This makes it really hard if not impossible to control a rally properly. It gives the opponent way too much time to recover imo.
So I would suggest, that when the opponent isn't running like crazy from side to side, they can hit shots that push you a lot back, and when you are in control, you aren't pushed back as much by the topspin, so you actually have a chance to hit winners. I think this would be fine because that would force the opponent to take chances as well and not only defend.
I disagree with this in every way. Sure, topspin pushes you back, but if it didn't it would be very attackable. It is a defensive shot, and that's why defenders get more topspin. Defenders shouldn't have to hit winners because the point of being a defender is to defend. And having two different viable styles makes the game more varied and therefore, imo, more fun. And it is easy enough for an attacking player to control a rally, by using accelerations. I don't think it should be that easy to control a rally without using accelerations, and the defensive player should be able to do it just as well as the offensive player.
