Hi again!, I'm having trouble with doing topspin in the third ball attack, I have a good topspin in general, against block and against backspin, my problem is time, this is the case:
(Training game with one person of my club, I play a lot with him)
I do a short serve with backspin, he always pushes with fast push but medium backspin to my middle or backhand, my problem is i feel i dont have time to get the position, because this I usually start the preparation of the forehand topspin and then I see it's coming to my backhand, this is very common.
It's normal I feel i dont have time with a fast push off short ball? How I train this?
This is common.
First practice it a lot when you know where the ball is coming. The start to practice it slowly when your partner has 2 options of where he can push the ball. Get him to push slowly at first and increase the pace as you start to react quicker.
The key is to watch the ball really carefully when you are serving and follow it all the way through the rally. Also watch the lesson we have on Improving Your Reflexes which will help as well.
