Every time I try to hit a backhand topspin the result is the same, that is, fast ball without spin. How can I correct that?

Hi Somchai,

Try to focus on the brushing contact.  It sounds like you may be getting a flat contact.

Try to focus on this and let me know if it helps.

Dear Alois.

Thanks for your advice. I find it is difficult to brush the ball. Most of the time I punch it even I try hard to brush it. Please give me some suggestions how to correct this mistake.

All the best,

Take it slowly and focus on the brushing contact.  You can even do this away from the table just to get the feel of the brushing contact.
