Playing Tall Pimple Player - 20:50

Todd: I play a guy that is about 6’ 6" with excellent reach both forwards and side to side. He plays with a basic bat with pimples and his game is simply to return everything without spin and work you side to side on the table. Are there any strategies?

Attacking Low Balls - 23:18

Pasquale: I’m having a problem attacking low balls, the problem is that when i want to play a shot fast, the ball comes long and i am able to attack it, but sometimes it goes lower than the net, I’m using the topspin technique but i can’t do it fast.

Carbon Pushes - 25:38

Thijs: Playing with carbon blade seems I need another technique for short pushes because the ball goes into the net. If I just lift the ball, I can keep it short but any forward movement makes the backspin crawl into the rubber and dive into the net.

Setting Up Third Ball Attacks - 27:53

Daniel: Is it possible to set up a 3rd ball attack using different sidespin serves? Do specific sidespin serves lead to predictable returns to either my backhand or forehand side?
