My backhand on the other hand is decent, I can hit blistering shot with it.
Just play like Niculescu and only hit slices on the forehand...

What technique do you speak?

Re: Topspin vs Flat?

Most players use both, I prefer to use a lot of topspin because its easier to clear the net however you need to know how to finish with a flat shot, easier said than done sometimes

Re: Topspin vs Flat?

Both. I've been really into watching men's tennis lately and taking what they have, so a lot of topspin to rally and open up the court, then I flatten the ball out.

I also like using a lot of slice, flat and topspin mix off of the backhand.

Basically I play like I grew up on red clay.
