Hi Alos, Thought I would give you a summary of how the camp went. So overall I feel really confident with my game going forward. I am very safe on the backhand and can rely on it until the sunsets. Majority of people play the same against chop, spin until it gets heavy then push then repeat. Going forward I think I will take a break from para table tennis and just focus on able-bodied as they play a lot stronger and a lot cleaner. Para, especially in the lower classes is just dirty in terms of constantly pushing and low-quality loops. But what I found, correct me if I am wrong, is that at a high-level chopping is not what wins defenders their matches its when they get their forehand in is when they win the point. How do I make use of this in matches? currently, when they push short I just come in and push with my pimps and go back out again. the majority of the time they drop short to my middle or backhand. I feel that to get my forehand in do I need to learn to step around and play it from the middle? I felt that I was too nervous this week to do so, so I just pushed with my pimps for safety. Also with chopping, i feel there is a lot less margin for error on forehand because you are covering a larger area each spin has to be quality otherwise they can really open you up wide on forehand.. any comments to this would be great.
