Hi Gautham,

Focus on the end of your racket.  If the ball is curving to the left, lift the end of your racket slightly and vice versa.  The key is the angle of your racket when you hit the ball.

If you take a look at our lesson on the Sidespin Forehand Topspin you may get a better feel for what I mean.
