That's the next thing I'm curious to know about. Everytime I execute it, that ball goes high out of control out of the table's

Hi Nicholas,

If the ball is going off the table then think about closing the angle of your racket slightly.  You can also think about getting more of a forward swing rather than a vertical swing.  Both of these things will help the ball to go back lower. 

Take a look at our lesson on the Forehand Loop Off Backspin to get a picture of the right starting and finishing positions which is critical for learning any stroke.

So it's okay to do that? Because you mentioned in your videos that we must have a 90 degree angle before hitting the ball..

That is true at the starting level.  As you become more advanced you can tilt your blade more forward.
