After hitting a topspin shot against backspin, I'm usually up close on the table.  If my opponent gets a good block on the ball they can usually win the point.  Any tips on how to quickly recover after that shot.

Hi Ben,

Try staying more relaxed and having a shorter stroke.  This will allow you to recover more quickly.

If you play a slower spinny topspin it will allow you more time before the ball comes back as well.
