When you say curved, I assume you are referring to one that curves horizontally as opposed to curves vertically like topspin naturally does?

lol.

I hit a curved shot a lot more with my slice backhand it just seems easier to carve into the ball that way with slice.  But with topspin, you need to make sure you come around the outside of the ball more.  It is tough and probably not a shot you will use often at all.  It just takes some side spin on top of that topspin.  I have played guys who were good at those with their passing shots.  Ball goes around me and finds a way into the court.  Drives me nutz.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I do it all the time but now intentionally. I guess it's like what BBB said; it's kind of a miss-hit. But if I had to put it in words, I would just say to hit the ball at a slightly different angle than you usually would. I know that doesn't really help much but it's advice.
Be the change that you seek.
