Hi Prince,

Against a really heavy backspin it is best to put a little topspin on the flick and slow it down as well.  You can try hitting it faster but you have you be exact to be able to get it on the table.

Is it true even for a very short serve? I recently learned backhand topspin flick, and I find it extremely useful against half-long backspin serves. However, very tight and short serves are awkward to spin out. So should I keep trying to spin them, or rolling back to a flat flick on very shot serve is better?

Keep trying the topspin on the flick.
