Hello sir,

I use short pimple on my backhand and the name of the pimple is giant dragon. I've noticed that I usually get a problem while playing against an anti spin player. What should I do?

Hi Uditi,

The first thing is to understand the effect the anti spin has on the ball.  It will revers the spin that you put on the ball. If you put topspin it will come back with backspin and vice versa.

A good simple tactic is to push the first ball and then when the ball comes back with topspin you can attack it.

I use a long, fast, backspin serve to the antispin rubber. Then when it comes back topspin, I attack.

I use a fast heavy topspin because I like lifting heavy backspin :))
Or,more often,I use a fast backspin too because I love chopping topspin even more
