Hi Alois:

Although I can use backhand or forehand topspin against a blocker,

I ultimately lose the point once the opponent  blocks two

or three times consecutively.  What am I doing wrong?

Hi Kevin,

The key is to use variation.  A blocker enjoys the ball coming at the same pace even if it is fast.  You are better off to vary the amount of spin, speed and placement to throw them out of rhythm.
