Hi Siddhartha,

The change in your racket angle will depend on where the ball is going when you hit it.  If the ball is going into the net then you will need to open your angle more or if it is going out then close your angle.

I find that Backhand topspins often have more spin than forehands so players find it harder to deal with.
