Hi Alois,

This time i have a peculiar question i think

When ever i practice by banging the ball to the walls .. i play very fast and all the shots such as forehand topspin and backhand topspin come exactly as shown in your videos.. 

But when i start playing on the table the forehand topspin spins well but often doesn't fall on the table but fall out of the table...

and with the backhand topspin the ball fall on the table exactly i want but doesn't spin at all...

while using them against the wall it comes exactly perfect spin and timing ...

so why is this happening...

I have already become the champ of tt in my school and as well as selected to represent my school in inter school olympics competiton ...

so i want to win a gold.....


hoping for a reply

Hi Sai,

When someone is hitting to you the ball is coming a little differently in flight and spin.

It is a matter of adjusting your stroke to allow for this.  Watch the ball in flight and then execute the correct stroke that you have been learning.  There ay be subtle differences in the angle of your bat but you will adjust this naturally if you are watching the ball carefully.

Well done on your improvement and I hope you do well and learn  lot at your inter school competition.
