Hi Alois and Jeff!

I played with a player who has anti spin rubber on one or both sides of his racket(I am not sure). When I topspin the ball, he chops it and whenever I return to him with a short chop or push, he hits the ball hard and finishes the rally.What should I do to defeat him.That player isn't in my school and I can't practice with him.

Hi Sourav,

Playing against anti spin is similar to playing long pimples.  You need to understand that the rubber reverses the spin.  So your topspin is probably a harder shot for him to play but it will come back to you with backspin when he hits it.  The backspin ball is easier for him to attack because it comes off his bat with topspin.

He can't generate any spin himself with it so you determine what spin is on the ball by what type of hit you give him.

For our Premium members we have a lesson on Playing Against Long Pimples in our Match Strategy course.
