Tennis player is at 3 o'clock, net is at 9 o'clock. With respect to this image for a heavy topspin FH shot, please answer the following: 1) Point on ball that racquet makes contact 2) Angle of racquet head with respect to ground at contact 3) Trajectory angle of racquet head So far I have been visualizing hitting the ball at about 1:30 to 2 o'clock, but note that to do this, I have to maintain a racquet head angle of about 45 degrees wrt ground (i.e. leading with racquet top edge)!! Also the racquet trajectory is also close to 45 deg., although maybe higher. It gives fairly good shots, but not heavy topspin. Seeing that most pros make contact with a nearly vertical racquet face, surely what I am doing is wrong. So what is correct. Please answer the above 3 questions only if you are experienced and have a good idea of the answer. People like LeeD stay away, I know I have to hit many balls and experiment.
