Consider the critical 24 inch hitting zone when creating topspin on a forehand or on a serve – to create this spin the racquet must be swung up from beneath the ball (12 inches) but carry upward after impact (another 12 inches) to create the rolling spin that more and more of us want in our games.
But before you hit up on the ball you MUST accelerate from beneath it. Therein the concept of the “racquet drop.”
