I am looking for some advice on the above subject. When I pivot and play a forehand topspin from the backhand side, my opponent usually knows that that ball is going to go down the line. So I want to try and pivot and still have that element of suprise as to where the ball is going to go. How can I play that forehand across court? When I try to do this, the ball usually goes a fair way off the end of the table. It doesn't have the spin on the ball to drag the ball back down. Any suggestions?
I find one thing that helps to go across court is turning your waist. This gives you a better angle to go across court. If you stay front on the only place you can go is down the line.
As you are pivoting, try to turn as well so that when you reach the position to hit the ball you have the option of playing cross court.
