Question 1 - 0:26

Hi Jeff and Alois, I often practice to attack backspins with a topspin using a Donic robot, but because of these exercises I tear my rubbers against the table at least twice a month. What I am doing wrong? Stanislav.

Question 2 - 3:00

Against beginners when I play my full loop I miss more because it feels like their ball has nothing on it and my ball just flies into space. It's got to the point where unless the player p uts a lot of pace or spin I'm afraid to do a full forehand. Peter C.

Question 3 - 6:51

I was bored waiting, so I did some wall practice, it got faster, after a few minutes I noticed my eyes were adjusting to the speed then, we played table tennis I got a winning streak of 6 matches. What other warmups are effective. Jigo.

Question 4 - 9:33

Hello, I want to ask: How can I return a fast topspin stroke without blocking it? What are the options? Thanks, Tibor.
