  7. Yep, spot on! A lot of rec players try to create topspin by “rolling over” the ball. Ive found when coaching that I have my players imagine the racket dropping below the ball, and then think of the racket as a plane taking off into the sky to get the proper swing path to impart the spin.

    Loving this blog!!! Great stuff, coaches!
