Hi Felix,

This is a difficult shot.  It is one that Jeff talks about a lot.  When he first started to try and learn the stroke he says he really struggled with the whole concept of the stroke.

Focus on the start and finish position and also on the topspin contact on the ball as we show you in the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin tutorial.  These three things will work together to get the stroke right.  It will take time as it is difficult to get the contact correct while making the swing.

Persevere with it and I am sure you will start to get the stroke.
