I'm sure we have all seen how players attack the flick to their backhand with their backhand. The question is, are they doing a topspin or a counter-hit? I find it hard to believe that they are even able to attack the ball.

Hi Romeo,

The better players are making a topspin off the flick because they are seeing the ball early and have a very efficient topspin stroke.

At first though, you may need to make a counterhit because of lack of time.

Also, move back a little more when you see your opponent starting to make a flick.
