    If you moved your grip in that direction then shouldn't the ball hit the net instead? You must've been aiding the top spin hits with your wrist. Try fixing your wrist and see what happens.

    Launch as in framing? Or launch as in hitting the ball to the next county?

    You went 'continental' instead, I bet!
