Hello Sir my question is that when my opponent serve me i return him with soft hands then he uses topspin then i block it again and again he uses topspin and i block it continues for along time then topspin becomes fast and i can't attack what should i do to attack when he uses topspin?

Hi Hemang,

The most important thing when blocking is your placement.  Try to get the ball away from his strength and play at a pace that he doesn't like.

Some players when playing topspin, don't like the ball coming fast but other don't like it coming slow.  Variation of speed is also important when blocking.  If you give the ball back to the topspin player at the same pace, they will keep attacking you.

You then need to think about how to stop them from making the topspin first.  This means you need to keep the ball short and low to force them into a slower or weaker topspin that you can handle.
