Hi Alois,

I have seen Timo Boll short pushing top spin serves, the action seems quite different from a normal short push against backspin serve. Could you explain the difference between the two?

Hi Abhinav,

When pushing a short topspin serve, your bat needs to come down vertically.  Also make sure you have a relaxed grip to absorb some of the speed and spin on the ball.
