Hi Alois since I've started chopping, I've only been playing good able-bodied players who spin cleanly like Gionis vs Ma Long for example. but this week I've been in camp in Sheffield and none of them spins cleanly and most of them push when it comes long to forehand it's actually disgusting haha. but its actually thrown me off a bit as I'm not quite sure what to do because I'm used to going out then coming backing in, but this style of play I am forced to stay close to the table, and because they push all the time when they push to my backhand 24/7 it actually starts to go quite high because I have no room to chop and they push with float. what should I do? these players are all class 6/7/8 ish.

Hi Tam,

This is something else that you need to get used to.  Being able to push consistently is an important part of being a defender as well.  It is a different aspect but with some practice you will get used to pushing on the backhand as well.  You can also learn to hit with the pimples off the push ball.  Take a look at the Long Pimple Attack Against Backspin tutorial.
