Hi Guys. I play against a work colleague who often uses a chop block (with low spin inverted rubbers) to return a topspin serve. The ball usually comes back mid-long. I'm never quite sure sure what amount of backspin (if any) is on the ball. What's a good basic approach to dealing with these returns?
The best approach is to do a slower spin initially. Give it plenty of height over the net and good topspin to get the ball to dip onto the table. The stroke to copy is the Forehand Topspin Off Backspin. Judging the amount of spin will come with practice but the higher topspin and slower topspin will give you plenty of margin for error.
