I can hit both the back-spin and top-spin balls feed from a machine with consistency. But doing poorly in real games: Missing the ball, timing wrong, off the table, etc. How can I improve?

Hi Jim,

I think the key now is to find a practice partner to feed you backspin balls.  The robot is OK for getting the basic technique right but the subtle variations that occur when receiving a hit from someone else isn't there.

The other thing you can do is to add random placement to the robot drills and if the robot has the function also vary the type of spin that is coming out.

Canthis be a reason why I play against a robot so bad?
