Hi guys .... lately i have hit a wall against a player 6'3 with long arms who I can't back off the table.

I've tried long and short strategies and he just pounds me ..... any advice ??

thanks, George

Hi George (David),

Often playing into the middle or to their crossover point, which is under their armpit, is a good strategy against taller players.  Also don’t try to win with speed if you are going wider, think about paying with more spin.

I'm 1m89. I flip short balls and topspin wide balls. But my weak point is the belly! Some opponents figure that out quite fast and I'll be struggling at the crossover point for the remainder of the match.
