Hi Alois and Pingskills
i have a doubt with the forehand flick, you say that is like a mini smash, non brushing contact, so when you hit a backspin ball, you must hit it with the angle open?
second, in a lot of places i saw that the flick is a brush hit...so what is better? and when is coming a backspin ball i must hit it with the open angle or generate topspin on it to make it over the net?
i use both, but i rather the mini smash, so the contact point is with the correct angle to nulify the backspin?
If the ball is higher you can hit it flat. If the ball is lower then you can brush and lift the ball more, especially if there is backspin on the ball.
You can compensate for the backspin with the open angle but this is a little more risky but you will hit the ball faster. It is all a trade off between speed and consistency.
