Forehand topspin is a vital stroke and will help you progress from beginner to intermediate and advanced standards of play.
In the video, I explain the difference between a drive and a topspin, including bat angle, contact point and swing trajectory.
I also look at how you can use your forehand topspin to attack backspin balls.
I show how to do a basic forehand topspin and also how to play with more speed and spin.
