For several months now I have been focusing on topspin drives against topspin on forehand side during training. But I in games I can never execute these, they end up being counterhits, mainly because the returns are too fast or placed wide. So how to be able to do topspins?
Similarly, I have been practicing loops against backspin for more than a year. Still in games, I can't seem to get a return which I can loop. Obviously I have been trying to put more backspin in my serves, but I always get retuns that are too far wide to loop.
What am doing wrong?
Sometimes these things take a while to be implemented into a game.
I think you need to implement them into a game where you play against lower level players and force yourself to use this often in the game.
Try to serve short as well and at an angle where you can predict where the ball is going to come back. Remember most players will return cross court.
