Hi Alois and Pingskills
i was wondered, Is necessary learn to counterhit and block before I learn the reverse penhold backhand topspin? and, Is necessary change the position of the fingers back of the racket? at least for me don't...i play with the fingers like in fist, and i feel that i can show all the face of the racket to the ball, besides for me is uncomfortable.
thanks for answer my question, you are the best.
I would develop the basic strokes first of counterhit and block. However I would try to get the feel for the RPB. You may not want to use it in a match but you can hit a few strokes and get the idea of where your fingers need to be and the angle of your racket. Then you can start to develop the topspin with it as well.

Wait a sec, I should develop my block with the RPB? Isn't one of the disadvantages of using the RPB that you have a bad block on the backhand side if you're using RPB?

yes, but block will give you an idea of the position of fingers (mean the angle of the bat, close or open) and the feeling of the stroke, to develop the topspin
