I really need help with something we talked about before, but, it is bugging me very much. You see, I have sometimes a problem with returning the serve with LP. I use an OX version, because I couldn't find LP with thin sponge. I have problems with serve return. My opponent is giving me short side spin, and, when I push, like with normal rubber, he attacks me so fast, I couldn't go away from the table and chop. On the other hand, when I try flat push as you told me, the ball becomes easy to flip. How can I make him harder with my returns, so he couldn't attack so easily.
And one more thing. I don't know much about defensive tactics, but, can you tell me, in general, when to chop, and when to counter-attack when away from the table, because, I am not sure which shot to play in certain moments.
You need to push that return faster and deeper to stop him from attacking.
When you are defending, you need to hunk about what types of shots your opponent is ready for. Mixing things up is a good idea. You can attack the longer balls when you are in good position.
