Do you think that it is good to have a motivation in order to win?
Everyone is continuously telling me that I have to be motivated and believe in myself on order to be good.
But they also constantly condemning my defensive style. They say things like "Defender is not a ping pong player","Using pips is not fair, it should be forbidden","You should not play any other strokes that topspin or smash","Do a topspin and make an error rather than doing a succesful chop","Do not go back from the table and try to catch opponent's attack rather than throwing it back" etc.
The result is that I am more negatively motivated: One of main reasons why I decided to be a defender is to show them that even the chopper can win.
What do you think about this?
And are you somehow motivated?
(Thanks for answering)
Hi D K,
Playing as a defender is a legitimate option and using pimples is also a good way to do this. Don’t worry about what others think if you are sure that is the way that you want to play.
Let us know how you are progressing.
