Is the reason why world-class players like Ma Long, Fan Zhendong, and Zhang Jike flick spinny backhand topspin because the ball is too low for them to flick with a flat contact?

Hi Romeo,

The backhand sidespin flick is easier against a backspin ball.  It is difficult to flat flick the backspin because the backspin will drag the ball into the net.
