No. Only kidding.

Picture the scene, the ball is coming back over the net, you adjust your feet to the left to take a nice swing with your forehand. The racket comes back and as you swipe upwards to create the topspin, at the last split second you roll your wrist over the the top in an arc shape......the dip the ball takes and the kick when the balls hit the ground is pretty good.

However, the thread is more about how the leather grip feels rather than an analysis of technique.

But I would like to know how you apply topspin to your forehand and back hand.
