Hi Pingskills! The contact when topspin a backspin ball is just only brushing the ball right? Or need to hit it a little?

Hi Xariuz,

You can vary the amount of brush you get depending on the amount of spin they put on the ball and the speed you want to hit it.

For more speed you can flatten out the contact for more spin, brush the ball finely.

Flatten out the contact? Doesn't the ball go straight to the net if so?

Not necessarily.  You are still putting some topspin on the ball so it will dip.
