What's the secret to returning a slice forehand or backhand when you want to return with a topspin shot?

How do you keep it from going into the net when you’re returning a solid slice?

Respectfully, to you and your question, the only “backhand” with which I am even remotely familiar, were the ones I got from my old man, whenever I “disagreed” with him.

Drop your wrist really low and ‘hook’ it up, with a whip of spin. Make it so your racket is almost perpendicular to the court, and spin it over the ball.

- Keep it over the low part of the net (high percentages).
– Swing all the way through the ball as you hit the top spin (the ball loses much of its pace after it hits the ground when it has under spin on it).
– Make sure you lift the ball up over the net while you turn your wrist over with the topspin.

If you can be just a little bit more detailed, I can give you some more technical advice. I’ve been teaching tennis for about 6 years now, so I may be able to help! Just let me know!
