The Backhand Counter Topspin

xxx NULL 1


The backhand counter topspin is an attacking shot used when you have slightly more time or a weaker ball instead of blocking. This shot uses the speed and spin from your opponents shot to propel the ball back at high speed and put them under pressure in the rally. This shot as with the forehand counter has become more important in recent years, with the shift in styles and players adapting to the new plastic balls the backhand side has become arguably as important if not more so than the forehand side.
