Hi, coach. I have a question. I don't know maybe I'm wrong but during my trainings I have noticed that some of topspins, block very easily. When I compete with some one most of my topspins block very easily even by beginners. When I look at others topspins I see that they make a point very easy by looping. I have to mention it, I think I have a very good feeling in my topspin. I can play with more or less spin any time I want during the game, on any spin, backspin or topspin.
Are you using variation of your topspin? This is a key to winning points. Any topspin no matter how good is less effective if you play the same stroke all the time.
If you are not doing it already, try varying the speed and placement of the topspin. You will get much better results.
Look for the place that your opponent doesn't like your topspin. Most of the time players will have a preference as to which side they like to block with. Think about it you probably have one yourself. Take advantage of the weaker side and also test out how well they block in the middle of their body. This can be a weakness in a lot of players.
