When serving, my favorite combo (I'm a lefty) is starting with a backhand side/topspin serve from my backhand side to cross court, which with the side spin, is much more likely to be returned down my forehand side of the table with a decent bounce because of the initial topspin from my serve, which I proceed to hit a strong wide drive cross court which usually results in an outright winner or nonreturnable ball. This always feels great, having an actual plan come to fruition.
When receiving, if my opponent hits long or wide to my forehand side, most of the time I am able to hit a strong drive cross court, which is usually returned down the line to my backhand side, and now I am finally able to capitalize on the open cross court shot and make the backhand drive cross court for winners.
I don't know if combo is the best descriptive word, but it is just a really great feeling being able to make the strokes you have wanted to have from when you first started playing, and have finally progressed to the level where you are starting to be able to make the hits you know you would be capable of with time and practice.
I'm really curious what both your's and Jeff's favorite "combo"s are, as well as the other PingSkillers.
I guess my favourite combo was the fast Pendulum serve down the line to the right handers backhand and then the forehand down the line 3rd ball after that.
Interested to hear other combos...
