Hi Alois and Jeff!
Today, i encountered lobs which seemed to be spinny. When the ball made contact with my side of the table , it dipped forward or a little to the side. Seems like it had topspin, or topspin sidespin ... When the ball dipped forward, it was very hard for me to make another smash, and it costed me the rally.
The time the ball is in the air with the lob is really important. Use that time to move your feet into position. I see that mainly players end up making errors on the smash because they don't move while the ball is in the air and then end up being too square to the table to make the smash.
Take a look at the lesson on the Forehand Smash for some more explanation on this.
