I've been working for a while on the ability to force the pace early in a rally, like in your #50 lesson of the Training Plan. I have definitely improved my footwork and power of my shots in the drills. But when I try to hit an opening shot in a match situation faster, my consistency goes down, which leaves me frustrated. So in matches, should I keep trying to use more power despite bad losses? Or I should play safer and keep doing the drills until I improve more?
If you are prepared to lose the match then you should keep focusing on hitting the ball faster. If the result of the match is important then go back to the safer opening topspin.
Keep working on the faster ball in training as well till you are really confident to go for the faster ball.
