I'm trying to learn the topspin backhand flick and I'm finding it to be an extremely difficult shot. As I progressed, I noticed that it is much easier to lift backspin and nospin balls if I contact the ball with the very tip of my racket. However, it requires absolutely perfect timing. So I have two questions:
1) Should I keep trying to hit the ball with the tip or it indicates that there is something wrong with my technique?
2) If it is OK, should I transfer this skill (hitting the ball with the very tip) to my full size backhand topspin against backspin?
Hitting with the tip is OK. That is where the racket is moving at its fastest.
For the topspin against backspin you can hit the ball towards the tip but also more towards the leading edge.
