Slice shots are often used on approach shots to keep the ball low and force an opponent to hit up, or when a player is in trouble and needs to hit a shot that gives him more time to recover. As a tactic, slice is used to change the pace of a rally during a point. By creating this change, it allows a player to disrupt his opponent’s timing and influence what kind of shot his opponent hits.
