Hi Coach,

How are you? :)

I'm Zul, I need your advise on how to serve or which best serve techniques against tall opponent / player i.e someone like Jorgen Persson / Vladimir Samsonov / Wang Li Qin.

Reason being, recently I played TT against with my office colleague (6"+- feet in height), whenever I serve short he easily flicked / flipped the ball and for long serve he would attacked the ball.

Coach, perhaps you will share some tips with regards to the above.

Thanks Coach.

Best Regards & TT Forever,

Zul (Malaysia)

Hi Zul,

A general tactic against tall players is to play into their middle.  Work especially into their right hip.  With their longer ars they need to move further to get into position.
