Is topsin importat in tennis?

Massively, that is if you want to become a serious tennis player. Every professional tennis player in the world uses top spin, and for two simple reasons: 1: Due to the forward rotation of the ball, the ball will dip more quickly than a shot without spin, thus allowing a player to hit the ball harder/higher as it will fall into the court lines quicker. 2: Again due to the forward ball rotation, upon hitting the ground the ball will bounce both higher and faster than a flat shot, thus making more difficult for an opponent to hit or to get in the correct position to strike the ball.
