It would be really nice of you if you can help.

Hi Mehboob,


Making the transition from practice to matches can often take a lot of time. You need to put more focus on the strokes during a match if you want to improve them. This may mean that your results suffer but in the long run you may become better.

To play a drive against backspin you need to brush the ball on contact and have a much more vertical stroke to lift the ball over the net. See the lesson on topspin against backspin at the following link on our website. Lesson - Forehand Topspin against Backspin. This will help you out.
