When i hit the first topspin, my partner returns the ball in the backhand or at extreme forehand and i am not able to return the ball how can i develop fast reflexes to return the ball and if by chance I reach to the ball then the ball goes out of the table. how can i return it properly?laughing

Hi Charankamal,

First think about how you can make the first topspin more effective.  If you can play it well, to a difficult position for your partner then he will have less control over where he places it back.

Then on the second topspin it is important to make sure you come over the ball.  The subtle adjustment between the first lifting topspin and the second topspin often leads to players putting the second ball off the end.  We have a lesson on this for our Premium members as well. Forehand Followup.
