    My view is that gaining the psychological advantage first is more important. Assuming you are playing against a stronger opponent. When you win the toss and make a firm choice, you are projecting confidence even though actually there may be no difference between the sides. But your opponent may be left wondering by your firmness and confidence, so his own confidence will be affected. Right or wrong, your choice already imposes a psychological pressure on your opponent. He will play slightly below usual. Now when you choose the better side, the court environment is helping you to play better than usual. Both situations will improve your chances of winning the first game. In the second game, if your opponent does not realise what hit him, he may not recover to take advantage the better side now at his disposal. As long as you keep focus on the opportunity to upset your opponent, the match is yours.

    Hope my sharing can give a different perspective on this subject.
