I recently learned the topspin flick (aka backhand topspin over the table). I find it incredibly useful against short no-spin, sidespin and moderate backspin short balls. However, flicking very heavy backspin with this stroke seems to be incredibly hard. So if I want to be able to flick those balls, should I keep trying to use topspin flick, or it is better to learn sidespin flick against them?
If the serve has a lot of backspin then the sidespin flick is probably easier to lift it. If you try with pure topspin, the ball is likely to go into the net.
