I have been playing table tennis for over 2 years now and my game has progressed to a very good level but there is weaker side to my game, my top spin always goes diagonal and they keep blocking and blocking until I lose the point, I need to be able to do a top spin down the line to confuse them. Please make a video showing the racket angle and a good body position for this shot. I will be most thankful because I have a tournament coming up and i believe that this shot will give me an edge.
The key to playing a topspin down the line is to keep your fingers and wrist relaxed. It doesn't take much change in the position of your fingers to get the ball to go in a different direction. You don't even need to alter the position of your body. You could try hitting the ball a fraction later, that may help as well.
