Hi Sohail-Ali,

Topspin is where the ball is rotating in a forward motion.  Backspin is the reverse of this.

You can do this on your serve or in the rally as well.

Take a look at our lessons on the Strokes & Techniques page to see more about the topspin and backspin.  The push and chop strokes use backspin.
