Hi! Whenever I play with my practice partner, I always lose. I can't even return his serve properly because of its heavy topspin. I try to flick it, it flies off the table. I try to push it, it ALSO flies off the table. I can't flick it with a flat contact because the ball is low. How do I deal with this kind of ball?
If the ball has topspin it will at some stage be above the level of the net after it bounces on your side. This is the point that you need to hit it. If you hit it too late or early it can be more difficult to flick it faster onto the table.
The topspin should actually help you to flick the serve.
