I want to increase the speed to my shots and get my smashes on correct place because my shots speed is a bit slow.

I also need to learn forehand spin serve.

Hi Neel,

To increase speed first you need to make sure you have good technique at a slower pace.  If you have good technique then you can build and hit the ball a lot faster.  Without good technique as soon as you try to hit the ball faster the ball will miss a lot of the time.  One of the big things with playing faster is generating good topspin on your shots.

Take a look at our lessons on the Advanced Forehand Topspin and the Advanced Backhand Topspin.

For help with your Forehand spin serve, start with a Pendulum serve.  We have a good tutorial on this in our Serving Secrets section, called the Pendulum Serve.
