Hi alois,

Why must we put the slow spinny topspin high over the net? Doesn't this just allow trouble that your opponents can attack you easier with the high ball.Why not put it low and spinny? That way I think it will be harder for the opponent to attack and defend.

Because it's low, they have to add some topspin in order to get the ball over and might lead them to over lift the ball. Blocking will also be a problem as the need the right angle. A little too open and the ball will go out, a little too close the ball will go into the net.

Of course this is only my personal opinion but let's see how you professional's think

Hi Eugene,

I think you can do both.  This is just another way of varying the stroke.  So if you can get it low sometimes it will also be an effective stroke.  It is a more risky stroke because of the proximity to the net.
