[Video] How to attack high backspin balls

In this video I explain how to attack high backspin balls.


High balls should be easy to deal with, but when the ball is high with backspin it can be a little trickier. Some players make an error of hitting the ball too flat and the ball ends up in the bottom of the net.

Instead if flat hitting the ball, you should try and topspin the ball instead. This will help counter the backspin and get the ball over the net.

In the video I demonstrate how to attack how backspin balls with both forehand and backhand topspins.
