The flip is a forehand stroke in table tennis that uses the forearm and wrist to create a quick and powerful shot with normally subtle topspin. It is best used when the server hits a softer shot with backspin or when your opponent’s stroke lands on the shorter/center side of your end of the table. These scenarios give you the best opportunity to use the flip and immediately grab the offensive advantage from your opponent.

Roger Federer’s forehand drop technique doesn’t create a stable wrist at the start of the forward swing. As we continue going forward in the swing, the wrist starts to fall back. At the same time, it starts to turn slightly, which makes the racket face start to turn away from a completely closed position.
The forehand swing path is very similar to a bowling motion. To get the feel for the bowling motion, you can simply take a few tennis balls and bowl them towards a target. After 20 or so repetitions, take your racket and see if you can implement this feeling of bowling into your swing.
Central in this movement is what Brian and Rick call the "flip." This is the backward or external rotation of the hitting arm and racket from the top of the backswing as they move down and set up the hitting arm position for the forward swing. This flip sets up the hitting arm for maximum explosion from the shoulder in the movement toward contact.
