Frankie Dell: Hi! I am Frankie Dell. I am a Professional Tennis Instructor. You are watching groundstrokes. Right now, I am going to show you how to hit with topspin. Topspin is, when you create a forward movement on the ball and the way you do this, like I said earlier, the forehand swing is a low-to-high movement. So you want to come up from under the ball maybe where the three is and just brush creating that forward movement, brush, so the low allows you to get under the ball and you want to hit the ball right around where the three is. Coming under and brushing over the ball. Brush, that creates that forward movement you want. Brush, brush, brush, okay, brush, coming under the ball, brush, brush.
So you might ask why do I need topspin. Well, topspin will allow you to clear the net by a wider margin thus making it a more safe shot, whereas if you hit the ball flat with no spin at all, if you try to clear the net by this much hitting a flat shot, it's most likely going to go out. But if you hit with topspin and clear the net by, say three, four feet sometimes, the forward spin of the ball can bring the ball down into the court. So it's a safer shot and the better you get at hitting topspin, you will be able to hit it harder and harder and harder and clear the net and still have a ball land in.
