Hi Yong,

Open up the angle of your bat.  So turn your wrist back.  It doesn't take much of a change in your wrist to get the ball to go in a different direction.

Thanks for the advice.it has certainly helped me a lot.partly because of pingskills,i continued and learnt partly from pingskills from the basics.without pingskills,i probably will be going up table tennis and I won't be posting this comment now.

i have submitted a few questions in one question i hope you do advice me on all the questions i have posted and asked there.if the problems are solved my game will be much better.
