You should try to stay quite stable when playing your strokes. If you are moving backwards you are often allowing your opponent to gain the initiative.
Think about keeping your right foot still when you are playing your stroke. When the right foot moves it often goes backwards and then you stat to move your whole body away from the table.
Especially when you are close to the table, try to keep your legs low. This will help to lift the ball over the net because your bat will start a little lower and be able to gain better lift.
