hi, i am working on topspin against backspin, fh and bh, and was wondering about the contact point on the ball. your lessons indicate a fast brushing contact, but should i be aiming for the top half of the ball, or centre, should i be trying to keep the ball on the bat for as long a time as possible to get more brush? thanks.
ps how is the training dvd progressing, will it be out end of this month still? many thanks.
For the topspin against backspin it is easiest to hit the ball in the area near the back of the ball. Because you are using quite a vertical stroke this will give you the best results.
You shouldn't keep the ball on the bat for very long. The longer the ball is in the rubber the more effect the backspin will have. Try and brush the ball with a short contact time on the rubber.
Training Secrets Revealed is in the final stages. As we keep finding these things always take longer than when you first plan them. We have finished filming and Jeff has just one more sleepless night editing before we can get to the production stage. We are also waiting on the artwork for the cover and disc. All very time consuming... but we will get there soon.
