    imho,

    nothing wrong with your technique. Better than majority of Us, actually.

    and your hook punch style topspin actually have bigger safety margin than our straight arm loop style.


    I recommend you to try a session or two, to swing as fast as you could, don't worry about accuracy, on multi ball. you will be surprised on the amount of topspin you generate on perfect stroke.

    Hridoy, why do you think you cannot make enough spin ? Can you serve light underspin short , ask somebody to push and loop on the third ball and record the video ? I am thinking that will give more information. I could not see anything wrong with the technique in the video you have posted, may be you can try to experiment on using a little looser grip on the paddle so that the snap is faster .... I will let others comment , but really I don't see much of an issue ... just keep drilling ...

    I'm not really sure what your level is, or what kind of shot quality you want, but the shots that you are making are pretty good. Good job.

    Maybe you can show us when you need more spin; maybe it's against underspin, or against half long shots/serves.


    Against topspin, you seem okay.
    If you want to improve shot quality on the topspin balls, then focus on spinning the ball forward and swinging through the ball faster. You should be able to get a faster shot with either the same amount of spin or more.

    You are already rotating your body and snapping your forearm, so that's good.
    Always go forward

    Looks pretty good there. You are completing the stroke from ready postion through to follow through quite well.
    Can you keep that form & consistency when you add movement to the drill?

    If you are wanting to add more spin all you need to do is brush the ball lighter and go through it a bit quicker. Perhaps
    too add more speed push with your legs a bit more or take a bigger back swing (straighter arm on backswing).

    If before the backswing you turn your right foot outwards more, it will be easier to twist your body into the shot to generate more power; you will feel like you have more room for that.

    You have an advanced stroke already and hit the ball a lot like I do. Your stroke comes round the side of the ball and doesn't play over the ball so you get more side topspin than pure topspin. IF you want more pure topspin, make sure your racket is parallel to the floor as opposed to pointing downwards at the end of your backswing.

    Agree with others that the form looks good. I have nothing to add technique wise that hasn't already been said.

    I think it's worth noting, and it's something I'm focusing on also, is are you working out? Lifting? Core work? Leg work? Power comes from the legs.

    You have good form. Now maximize it and make sure you're in as good of shape and as strong as possible.

    If you're already doing that, congrats.

    Your stroke is decent. Why do you think, that you don't generate enough spin? I think you can train to shot harder. As you advance, you will need more power.

    Your FH topspin stroke vs a block hitting 40 percent power looks just fine.

    I would have to see you in action using 70 percent plus power to comment on spin production.

    Checklist:

    1) Hips, Check
    2) Core Rotation, Check
    3) Weight Transfer, Check
    4) Forearm Snap, Check
    5) Wrist Whip, Check

    It does check all the important bases.

    In the first video it does look like your feet are too squared to the table and your right foot should be further back. But in the second video, it looks like that is, at least, to some extent, corrected. So, as Der_Echte says, we would have to see the FH in real match play to see what it actually does well and what it does not.

    Looks good. I'd say a slightly quicker shoulder rotation, and drop that right foot back a fraction.

    the general form of the stroke looks ok to me. good timing, good balance

    I think though towards the end of the move, your upper body goes up, and your general move as a result is a bit too vertical.
    As a result, thats why i think your topspin looks a bit slow to me, and lacks power.
    you should try to keep your upper body lower all the time.

    also i think you are not explosive enough, you should rearm quicker, try to start your gesture 1 fraction of second LATER, so that overall it will be quicker. Relax even more your arm and wrist, all the time except at the impact. It looks too "linear" to me.

    move your legs more even for a drill like this one. its all on the table, maybe try to play straight from time to time, it will force you to adjust your legs
