|Guys... I'm talking about a traditional 3rd ball attack... which is what you asked for. If the ball is falling, you are just returning the ball with a loop or a push and not really "attacking"|
1. good backpsin serves don't go of the table and don't 2nd bounce much above the net. If it does, the server is either trying to do something sneaky, sttack a weakness, or screwed up. In any of these latter cases, the common response is a Defensive loop as the ball is falling. If it doesn't then you don't have any room to loop...
2. realise that for the same amount of energy imparted to the ball, looping the ball on the way down = less speed & more spin than smash/attacking on the way up
3. open you racket up (more than you think): the ball wants to go down so you want to come in under the ball to get it over the net, and then close down to keep it from sailing away.

The blade moves forward and up. The ball is contacted just before peak.
This is NOT a LOOP. You CAN attack backspin. This is like a flip+smash.
