HI Alois / Jeff
I found that when I have decided to attack a serve , I am able now to do a back hand topspin now reasonably well on a long chop serve however when the opponent sees this and he shortens his chop serve and as a result my return goes into the net.
So please can you let me know how does one decide when to push or still continue with an attacking returns.
When does one decide to push or flick. Is the backhand side spin flick helpful in maintaing the continuation of attacks even if the opponent shortens his serve.
Good to hear the backhand topspin return is coming along well.
In general if the ball is going to bounce twice on the table then you can put away the topspin return and use the push or flick.
However, with the sidespin flick, you can attempt to attack the shorter ball as well. This is a difficult stroke to master. Have you tried it? If so, what was your success like?
