Good day Alois and Jeff,

i am using a defensive inverted rubber. i can chop a really heavy topspin loop with my inverted rubber but when my opponent adds sidespin, my chop goes out due to sidespin and i do not know how to counteract the spin.

any advice?

best regards,

Hi Amekun,

You need to alter the angle of your racket to face to the side slightly to counteract the sidespin on the ball.  So if the ball is going to the right, face your bat more to the left and vice versa.
