Happy Holidays to start.
I'm an Anti player myself on the backhand. My forehand is fast and that's my weapon. I saw some video's about how to play against anti players, but is there also a video to play with Anti rubber. I play the rubber for 3 years now, and I'm curious what is the best bat stand. Normally I play my Anti far behind the table to chop. But I would like to learn to use the Anti on the table and to switch side (turning the bat in the hand).
Like to hear from you.
Kind regards, Patrick
One of your main weapons is to give your opponent different pace and spin to deal with.
First try to cut down your opponents time to see this by staying closer to the table. You don't need to do a lot with the ball, initially. You can block with the anti and topspin with the inverted rubber.
Switching is a next step that can be very effective. By turning the bat in your hand and playing with the inverted rubber on the backhand you can really surprise your opponent. Look at the tutorial on Twiddling with LP Ox and Inverted. The same applies with the anti.
The other thing to try is attacking with your anti against a backspin ball. This is the same principle as the stroke we show you in the tutorial on the Long Pimple Attack Against Backspin.
