Giddy Up Footwork Return
Some Birthdays plus we discuss yesterday's "On This Day!"
Lukas: I went to my club and played a couple of times last week, it was a lot of fun! Of course I was a little rusty, but I got warmed up pretty quickly. My rubber felt a little fast but my coach didn't think that it was a problem. Found anything on Borgar Haug?
Esi: Both players are using inverted rubbers. Player 1 does a heavy backspin. Player 2 put his bat horizontally under the ball and lift the ball over the net, only upward action, no forward action. What spin does player 1 receive and how should he attack?
Kristian: When my friend returns the ball high using his pimples rubber I am having trouble smashing it. He returns the ball deep on the table and if I just try and smash it, it goes into the net. If I try to use some topspin I hit it out.
Romeo: How do I lift a push that is loaded with backspin? I had my bat horizontally, my arm move as fast as it can go, had a slightly pushing contact, but still I couldn't lift it. It is a really long and fast push and it made me lose an important match.
