Hi pingskills, i watched your video about the forehand topspin variations and i learn a lot from u.
But at the end you say "sometimes hitting the ball slower with more spin is more effective that hitting it as fast as you can".
Why is this? Wouldn't the fast ball with more power and speed (and still has some topspin) be better almost always? What advantage does heavy topspin have? Does the spinny ball make the opponent have higher chance of error?
It is the variations that is the key.
If you always play slow then it is not effective as the opponent has more time to deal with the ball. However, if you combine the faster ball with some slower balls then the slower ball becomes very effective. More effective than hitting the 3rd or 4th ball with the same fast speed.
It is something that isn't used enough in a game.
