Hi Virabot,

If you are truing to topspin it, then you need to have a vertical stroke and brush the ball fast.  Your racket needs a lot of speed to counteract the backspin.  Take a look at the lesson on the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin.

If you are trying to push it back then tilt your bat right back so it is basically facing the roof.  Then push under the ball and you can even lift your bat slightly with the stroke to help it over the net.
