Hi Jayant,

To do this you need the incoming ball to be quite wide so that you have a direct path to the table.  Sometimes you can get a bit of sidespin and make it curve around the net but that adds another layer of difficulty.

Then wait till the ball is quite low, around table height and play a sidespin topspin stroke like we show you in the tutorial on the Sidespin Forehand Topspin.

Not easy... but lots of fun when you make it.
