topspin woes w/ video video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kn5Kmfy0skU Hi all, I am have trouble hitting consistent, effective topspin. Here is my dilemma: If I try hard to hit topspin, my racket travels upward so fast that the time window for the racket to hit the ball is miniscule. This results in frames, netted balls, or extremely short balls with no forward drive on them. And I still don't get that much spin. It seems like the strings just slide off the ball. If I try to drive the ball AND hit topspin at the same time, I just end up hitting the ball hard and high over the net, and it keeps going, until it lands long. Note, I use a semi western grip, so I DON'T think it's a problem with my racket face being too open. I will try to get a video. Are there any common solutions to this (hopefully) common problem? If not, feel free to ask me questions about my stroke if i can't get a vid up anytime soon. Thanks!
