Hey Alois,

I have been struggling to return a heavy backspin chop. I want to specifically how to return it with a topspin on the forehand. Whenever I play defensive players I struggle to return it with a topspin, so I return it with a normal backspin push but then, they counter me with a smash.

Hi Sung,

The stroke you need to focus on is the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin stroke.  This is one that can take a little time to develop.  Focus on the start and finish positions that we emphasise in the tutorial.  Don't be afraid to miss some when you are starting out.

It is great that you are thinking about playing this stroke more because it is an important part of developing your game.
