Best Answer

To hit a tennis ball with topspin, at the point of contact with the racquet being perpendicular to the ground, twist your wrist so the face of the racquet with the point of contact with the ball turns towards the ground.

You must do this while you are swinging at the ball. Follow through with the ball, which means do not stop as soon as you hit the tennis ball and twist your wrist, but rather let the momentum let you take the racquet more forward after contact with the tennis ball has ceased.

The best way to generate topspin is the "high-to-low" concept, by starting with your racquet low and ending up higher.

How do you hit a topspin lob in tennis?

Topspin lobs are a great tennis shot to have. A topspin lob adds depth to your game and keeps your opponent guessing. Instead of always hitting them volleys when they are at the net, slip in a few topspin lobs. You better hit the topspin lob properly because if you don't, your opponent will most likely crush it in your face. A topspin pulls your opponent out of position on the court as they run down the lob. A topspin lob is not for singles only. It can be highly effective when both opponents are at the net in doubles as well. To hit a topspin lob you brush up the back of the ball from 6 0'clock to 12 o'clock similar to how you would on a topspin groundstroke. However, you need height. Open up your racquet face so that it is angled more towards the sky. This will help get the trajectory you need. Also make sure to hit with authority. Otherwise the topspin will fall short. To practice your topspin lob have a partner feed you a forehand. Try to hit a topspin lob that sails high in the air and lands close to the baseline. Do this 10 times and repeat on your backhand.
