Maybe it is just new to me hehehe. I noticed that many male pros are hitting topspin with sort of an open face. Most club players equate top spin to a closed face. The top spin I am talking about can be seen clearly in inside-out FHs, but nowadays I am seeing it in many different situations. You go low to high on the ball - but in a scooping out fashion, as if it is an underhand serve (or for those familiar with table tennis, a top-spin serve). I used to think it was a wimpy shot not to be used in tennis, but I am seeing it being used extensively in DTL, UTL and down the middle shots (but not in crosscourt shots obviously). I am trying to incorporate it into my game.
