Recently Ihave been practicing forehand topspin against chop.  I noticed that my topsin was spinny but way too slow and high.Any experienced player could easily punish the ball.How should I keep the ball low and fast?

Hi Sourav,

To keep this ball lower you need to brush the ball a little faster but more over the top of the ball. If you brush up the back of the ball then the ball will lift high.  In itself this can be a good variation but not if you do it all the time.

yes,i face the same situation while brushing the ball off backspin.If enough topspin the ball has,there is a less chance of facing a powerful return if not then keep back from the table with the hope blocking the ball.

I tried to do this today, but the ball keeps on going into the net.Can I continue the topspin against backspin shot and angle the racket a little bit down?
