I was playing recently and i found that when i serve a backspin ball, the opponent would cut to my backhand. As my backhand is not really well developed yet, i would sometimes just cut the ball or move around to do a forehand topspin which some times an error would occur. Should i train my backhand or adopt faster footwork to move around for a forehand?
The first thing to do is to improve the backhand topspin. This is important because you will not always be able to move around fast enough to topspin this ball with your forehand.
You can also work on your footwork but it is important that you have a reliable backhand topspin. It doesn't need to be very fast or strong, but it needs to be reliable and on the table.
