There is this guy from our local club who always stay close to the table and flat hit the ball.
He either topspin the ball or hit it flat, mostly flat and it is fast. He is also good at blocking and with very good angle.
His backhand is mostly his weakness but i can't keep drilling to his backhand all the times as he get used to it.
What should be the strategy against this guy?
Sometimes playing to the strength, then opens up the weakness. If you play some balls to his forehand side this will move him over and then expose the backhand. If you play more to the backhand it allows him to get set up there. Moving and playing the backhand is a lot harder than being in position and playing it.
Try this out and see how it goes.
Also try to vary the speed and spin on your shots. If he hits the ball flat and from close he will be relying on your speed. A slower ball can sometimes be effective.
