In this video I ask top coach Eli Baraty to help my improve my counter topspin.
Usually when my opponent attacks, I go into blocking mode. But I’d like to do a bit more than always ‘block’. I want to get better at attacking my opponent’s attacks.
So I got together with top coach Eli Baraty to develop my counter topspin skills.
In the video Eli takes a look at my technique and gives me tips on how improve my counter topspins, including shortening my strokes and recovering quicker.
See if you can notice any improvements…
