hi alois and jeff,

about he zhi wens style of play... what exactly can be said about it? far as i can deduce he uses powerful counterhit shots to get his opponents out of position and then finshes with good placement. what are your thoughts on this?  And can such a style of play be always effective?

thanks!

Hi Shripathi,

His style has got him to an extremely high level.  It is a difficult style to master though because you have smaller margins for error so you need to train regularly to play that way.  The lack of topspin and the flatter hitting makes it more difficult to be consistent with it.

what about the short pips he uses? would they helping him in utilising this style to the fullest?

and what about those unbelievable serves of his?

The short pips suit his flat and fast hitting style.  Not so much the serves but definitely the fast hitting.

What is the weakness of such a player?


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 6 years ago

They can't generate as much topspin so they have to be very accurate with their strokes.

They cannot  generate..but they also can ignore the opponent's spin to some extent.
Is there any way how to get such a player away from the table?

Use your attacking topspin and use variation of spin, speed and placement.

In other words,you must attack with higher frequency than him?

Alois, how is he able to always stay close to the table? I don't get it. Everyone else gets backed away, but he does not. How does he do that, and can I emulate it?

Pimple rubber absorbs a significant amount of power from the ball. Additionally, reaction speed and prediction also plays an important role

He has very good reflexes.  He also uses an efficient style with little backswing.
