No arguing that the pro's are playing with in a style that gives them the best chance to win the point. The thing is that they are playing with other pro's with similar control. For lesser mortals leaving a gaping hole in the middle of the court is ripe for exploitation. Many times strategy depends on level of play. I am often able to find a gap in the middle when playing against 4.0 players and below. Against 4.0+ players the gap in the middle is much harder to find, and what is a winner for me against lower skilled players is a winner for them when facing higher skilled players. There are many examples of these strategy differences based on the skill level you play.
