How can I tell the difference between deadball and backspin ball when the ball is flying high in the air ? It looks the same for me. Sometimes i judge the ball wrongly so i missed the opportunity to score..
The ball with a lot of backspin will tend to stay in the air a little longer and almost look like it is floating. Try to get someone to give you a lot of these balls as multiball and you will start to understand it better.
The high backspin ball can be a difficult one to deal with. Open up the angle of your racket as you make your shot to counteract the backspin.
