Hey Alois is it good if I add sidespin on the short push? I heard it's easier to control the ball to be short and a bit harder for the opponent to control the sidespin and then more likely that the opponents push will come long.
Adding sidespin can help you to push the ball shorter because there isn't as much forward momentum. Getting the ball as early as possible off the bounce will also help with this.
The sidespin does also make it more difficult for your opponent to tell the type and amount of spin on the ball and therefor there is more chance that you will get a loner next ball that you can attack.
We show you a little about the use of sidespin in our tutorial on the Drop Shot off a Lob. We will add a tutorial on the use of sidespin when we get the opportunity to film next.
