Hi Coach

Firstly, you're the one who makes my strokes improve. You're my only coach, so great thanks

My question is in this video (2 mins 21 secs)

After some great topspin shots and the player is too far from the table, Ma Long has played the ball too short

Is it allowed ? 

Is it Ma Long point or the another player? 

Thanks :)

Hi Elsayed,

That shot is allowed.  It is a good tactic.

We have a lesson on this stroke called the Drop Shot off a Lob.
