I am currently working on my forehand topspin. I am not bad at it. I get most of the topspins on the table. i start around at my thigh level and finish up around above head level.(I have seen your video on forehand topspin). What sometimes happens is, my topspin hits the top of the net and sails across the table. I get very much frustrated. If this starts happening, it will continue for a long time. Can u advice me about this?
After i get it right, i just wanted to know if the forehand sidespin topspin is really useful. If i can just keep using my plain topspin, or do i need to learn the sidespin/topspin?
It may be that you are not getting enough of a brushing action on the topspin. The topspin shouldn’t go close to the net because the topspin will allow you to go higher and still drag the ball down onto the table. Does your bat have enough grip on it?
The sidespin topspin is definitely not a necessary stroke to learn. It is just something that you can experiment with and add a bit of variety later.
