hello all, often on my forehand side I find myself hitting balls that have a upwards trajectory and curve downward to land in because of topspin. the trajectory is such thats the ball doesn't seem to dip until it reaches their service line creating a moonball effect. this is fine and dandy but I want a more piercing stroke with more pace. any tips???
P.S. I try to hit SW but it might be more torward western grip

Get more forward extension. Instead of just brushing up on the ball, hit more squarely into the ball. Step into the court and don't hit the ball off your back foot.
