In my league and amongst the players I often play against, it often comes to push-push games and it is hard for me to break through that before I make some mistake (and they are more experienced and will less often make one). So I think my next logical step in my development is to improve my topspin against backspin.
While in multiball drills I usually get it quite well after some time, in games I find it extremely difficult to get the ball on the table that way, let alone play a strong topspin. Would it be a good way to start with slower spinny topspins (which I find much easier to play) and build it up from there? Or do you have a better recommendation?
Regards from Germany,
You are right you need to work on the topspin against backspin stroke like you are doing.
You can take it a step further now though. Multiball is a good way to start but then you need to also practice the stroke in a rally situation after playing a push. The movement to position is very different when you are doing multiball to when you are pushing and then have to move to make the topspin.
You can start with the slower topspin but can also try the faster strokes quite soon.
