Whenever i try to topspin the backspin it would rather go out of the table or go in to the net. Help me . As far as i know my movements are slow but how to improve it. And any other measures to be taken care of? pls advise .

Hi Viren,

This can be a difficult stroke to learn.  Increasing speed is a matter of trusting the movement of the stroke and getting your arm to move faster through the stroke.  At first you will have to forget about trying to get the ball on the table and just think about getting the arm to move faster.  Also make sure you are getting a good brushing contact on the ball to get the lift.  Also make sure your rubber has some grip to be able to lift the ball.

Take a look through the tutorial on Forehand Topspin Off Backspin.

It sounds like the bat is good so now focus on the brushing contact. You will need to brush finer than with your previous bat because of the increased speed.
