Badminton Drop Shot - 16:14

Close Table Forehand Topspin - 21:11

Oliver: My strength is my forehand topspin which is effective when back from the table but now since I am close to the table, I often use my forehand block which is not as good as there is not much room. So how to play a close table powerful topspin?
