how do u forehand topspin or loop the ball down the line from your backhand?
To make a forehand topspin from the backhand corner you need to make the correct footwork movement first. Use the normal sidestepping footwork to move over to the backhand corner.
Then play a forehand topspin like you would normal. Remember if you are going to hit it down the line, there is less distance and table to work with. This will mean that at first you should slow the stroke down and play with a bit more topspin to get the ball on the table.
The key is getting a good position and that is why footwork is always so crucial.
