If I serve a short backspin ball, and the opponent pushes it back, does this mean that the backspin I placed on the ball is cancelled out? If that is the case, then will the backspin be heavier if I pushed it long?
You can put your own backspin on the ball. The spin bites into the rubber and kicks out so that you can generate your own backspin.
If you push it longer you can swing through a bit faster and therefore generate some more spin. You still need to maintain the brushing contact to get the spin.
