Dear Alois,

i'm having difficulties playing against one senoir citizen who is just standing still but pushes and places my ball easily(even my ball with heavy backspin).

one thing i noticed is that,all my return seems like automatically find his hand and voila!!! he just pushes it and place it effectively.

please help me how to deal with this coz i feel like it's not fair the guy just stand there while i'm doing all the hardwork yet i'm the one who loses(ha ha ha)

Hi Afzainizam,

Firstly try taking a risk early in the rally to place the ball wide and get him off balance.

It is surprising the small change that you need to make sometimes to gain an advantage or stop being run around.

In the rally don't give him too much speed to work with as he seems to be running you easily.  Try slowing sown the pace.  He may not be able to attack you so well then.  When he gives you an opportunity try to make a strong attack.  If he returns that, tnen start again.
