Hi, I am facing difficulties in really short serve with backspin. I make an error during the push/flick, either it goes into the net or the flick goes so slow that my opponent could flick more sideways to finish the rally which is difficult to return in that moment. If I wait for the ball to give it a topspin, the ball bounces twice on my side. I am using a GKI Euro XX Offensive bat, which is creating more difficulties regarding the control. Kindly help me in this...
Take a look at our tutorial on the Forehand Flick. This will help. Take particular note of a couple of things. Making sure you hit the ball at the top of the bounce and also having your wrist back on the backswing of the stroke. These two things will help you to hit the ball faster on the flick.
The other thing is to make good decisions as to when to push and when to flick. If the ball is too low and has more backspin, then making a short push can also be very effective.
