Hi PingSkills

I really got problem on how far from table I should do a topspin stroke

I found that I should stand near for the topspin stroke and stand further for the loop

But I still wonder what's the right position to stand

please help me

thank you very much

Hi Frendy,

Stand at a distance you feel comfortable.  You can also change the type of stroke you pay depending on where you find yourself.

It depends on how deep the return is.  Adjust your position accordingly.

What is the difference between the terms topspin service return and loop return. Aren't they the same thing?

Thanks

Hi Joe,

The Loop is just a slower type of topspin.  Don’t need to get too worried about the terms.
