Hi , I was just wondering that during a rally in a match, what matters is spin or speed . I mean if in a rally, my topspin have much speed with less amount of spin , then also it is difficult for my opponent to return it , on the other side if my topspin in having a lot of spin with a less speed ( just like a slow spinny loop ) then my opponent can easily finish it with a flat . so in a rally should I put more effort on speed rather on spin (except the service) .
I also want to ask you the correct action and position for a loop on a cut ball (that goes high enough on a cut ball) with tremendrous amount of spin . Please give me a video answer if needed , thank you very much .
The key is variation and feeling what your opponent isn't expecting. If they are expecting a fast ball it is difficult to hit it fast enough to get through them but if you play a slow spin ball in this situation you may well win the point.
There is no definitive answer to which is better, it is just a matter of which is better for that shot at that time.
For a topspin against backspin take a look at our lessons page and watch the lesson on the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin.
