Hi Alois and Jeff,

I'm a pretty advanced player but I'm looking to maximise spin when I chop but it usually either goes well up into the air or lands in the net.

Any advice for this?

Hi Joshua,

To generate more spin and keep the ball low, open up the angle of your racket till it is almost flat to the ground.  Then brush under the ball hitting right at the base of the ball.  If you do this with a fast contact you will generate good spin.  This technique is difficult and you will need your good level of ability to make it happen.
