Can you please request Simon to answer this question?. Hi Simon, I am avid follower of your game and I really appreciate your strategy of an all round attacker. I have noticed that the most distinguishing part of your game is the power shots/finishers executed by you to score winners.
My problem is that after hitting a loop on an underspin I get a high ball as a block. Although it sounds silly but I really miss hitting most of those balls as some go out of the table and others land on the net. Can you please let me know the dynamics with slow motion on how to practice hitting finishers?
All the best for pingskills classic and thanks for your help.
The best advice I can give for producing power shots is to learn how to get in the perfect position for each shot you play. If you can get into a good position then you can play the exact same stroke each time. When talking with my students about this I tell them not to compromise their strokes.
The best way to practice this is by doing some footwork drills. And one last tip, remember that to hit the ball faster you need to have some forward momentum.
