If only some of my topspins fails then I continue to play in an offensive mode. I noticed that if my 3-4 topspins in a row fail (go off the table, to the net) then I start to play in a defensive mode. Although I choose only good moments to do topspin. Especially vs players with pimples. I start to play only with chops like old days (10 years ago) when I didn't know what is topspin. Against some players this strategy worked good. But sometimes I lose badly even to those I usually win. Is it a bad habit? What do you suggest?
I think you need to determine whether you want to make the topspin stroke on these balls.
If that is what you want to do then in training you need to set yourself the task of making sure that you topspin whenever you have the opportunity to do so... even if you are missing a few. You obviously have the ability to make the stroke so it is more a matter of continuing to work out how to make the stroke effectively rather than reverting to a defensive game.
