Hello, please how to topspin a high, long, no spin ball? Especially, please what is contact point for that? When i do counter topspin, i normally start under level of table with 45°(closed) angle of racket and when i contact the ball, i have even more closed angle to contact on the top of the ball. Is that same for high, long, no spin ball?

Hi Marek,

Yes, topspinning a high, long, no spin ball requires the same type of contact point as a counter topspin. 

If the ball is high you need to start your swing from higher and then rush the top of the ball.  If the ball Is around shoulder height or higher you can also think about smashing the ball.  Take a look at our tutorial on the Forehand Smash.
