One of my opponent  is a solid defender. He blocks topspins, smashes, whatever you throw at him. And has a very good consistency. I just go on topspining or smashing, which often results in loss. his a good blocker after all.. So i was thinking if I shd play defensive against him bcoz his attacks are not that great and my chops are not easy to attack. Shd i just continue playing offensive or go for defence?

Hi Nagaraj,

If you feel like your defence can be successful then that is a good tactic to use.

The blocker relies on your speed to use against you so if you don't give them any speed they need to generate their own.

We have a lesson in our Match Strategy section on Playing A Blocker which will also help.
