Hi Alois

Should I lob a very high smash with topspin or hit the ball flat? Will the topspin bring the ball higher and let the ball go out of the table?

Hi Yap,

The more topspin you can put on the lob, the higher you will be able to get the lob and still get it to dip onto the table.  It also kicks forward when it hits your opponent's side of the table which forces them further away from the table.

Hi Alois/Jeff

Sometimes I see players doing a tops in to topspin stroke even after a smash and when they are very far away from the table. How to they execute this.

We have a lesson on topspin to topspin in our Strokes and Techniques section.  I think this will help you.
