To get topspin the strings of your racket have to brush up against the ball. The higher angle with which you brush up, the more topspin there will be. Just try to swing straight up at a ball and if the ball spins a lot then you have achieved topspin. Then from there you can judge how much you need to bring your racket up to produce the topspin for your liking.
