Heavy topspin

Hi, I'm having a problem blocking heavy topspin. It never used be problem but now I seem to be blocking too early or too late, the ball flying off the table or straight into net. When I practice against loopers I try to watch the angle of my bat  but I don't seem able to watch the ball all the way to my bat, getting really frustrated. Any advice.

Hi Roy,

Sometimes it is just a confidence thing with the block.  Try to be firmer with the contact and wait till the ball is as high as possible so that you can punch down on the ball.

Take a look at the tutorial on how to Counter a Slow Spinny Topspin.  There are other methods apart from a block that you will see there as well.
