    When striking the forehand, the hand should be at the same height as the ball, or a little bit higher. Now when I flatten out my shot, I try to keep the hand height almost the same throughout the stroke so that I'm hitting through the ball and not up the back too much. At the same time I let the racquet to drop below the ball to apply just enough topspin to keep it in. I'm not sure if this is correct or not.
