Hi Alois and Jeff, i have good news!, my robot really works! and i have practiced around an hour this day, now im playing as a beginner because before i played most of the time for fun. Anyways i want to know if i am doing something right. Today i started doing 2 drills that contains The counterhits forehand and backhand, and i got a few questions, should i add topspin into my counterhits or just a flat contact with the ball? and the other one is should i practice the push the next day forehand and backhand with the counterhits but separated drills? like a drill with forehand counterhit and another drill with backhand and the other 2 with pushes?

Thanks for reading!

Hi George,

That is good news.

The drills you do are endless.  You can start with some counter hitting and then move on to some topspin.  With all of your training, set yourself some focus for the session and work on it.  So you can do the same drills over different days but have a different focus.  For example you can practice the one forehand and one backhand drill.  THe first session you can work on consistency and see how long you can keep the ball in play.  The next session with the same drill you can see how much topspin you can get on each stroke.  The next session again with the same drill you can work on accuracy.  Put a target on the table and while doing the drill, see how many times you can hit the target.

In our 52 Week Training Plan we set out training that you can do each week for 52 weeks.

Work hard and see if you can use the robot to improve as much as possible.
