Interesting theory. Now I hope hitting SSS doesnt become a necesity to be top tier.
Well, as far as we know, Kintarou and Tezuka can't hit it, but they are currently top tier. I don't think it's needed. It might boost it up a lot, though.
Then again there have been a few theories that state that Kintarou can subconsciously hit with SSS which is why he gets the crazy amount of power that he does.
Furthermore if this theory is true, couldn't it also be used to explain the power behind Hyaruken. Everything else having to do with Muga has been explained in pretty real terms.
PoP is playing for fun therefore having the ability to demonstrate 100% of latent potential.
Saiki is completely understanding patterns in tennis to predict the optimum way of hitting.
Muga No Kyouchi is relying on previous memories and implementing them into game play subconsciously because of technical skill.
Hyaruken has been explained by concentrating the power of Muga into your left arm.... which is not a very realistic idea. Maybe the true power behind Hyaruken is to hit with SSS with the same level of technique that the opponent has used and return the shot as if it is double. It is the addition of your power and technique to that of another powerful technique.
