I am a left handed player. I face problem when the opponent chops the ball close to the net with height. I have tried pivoting and smashing the ball but I want to know how I can return the ball with my backhand. When I try to do backhand topspin ball goes out of the table. Please help me with this.
This can be an awkward ball. The first thing is to see it as that. Often we see that ball really high and think it is going to be easy. You need to allow for the backspin. Play a backhand topspin but finish a little higher and topspin the ball rather than hitting it flat. Take the stroke slowly at first and then when you get the feel of the ball you can start to hit it faster. See if you can get the ball set up like that in training so that you can practice it.
