Hi Raymond,

Have your grip central in your hand. If you extend your arm the bat should be in a straight line with your arm as an extension of your arm.

For the topspin hit the ball nearer to the front edge of the racket.

To block a fast shot you need to use an efficient small stroke.  The best is the Backhand Block and Forehand Block strokes.

Hi Raymond,

Contact the ball with the leading part of the rubber to get more spin.  For more control hit it closer tot he middle of the racket.
