Hi Alois

I have problem attacking the long pimples push with topspin because it is very low. Can you help? Should I need to play a topspin against backspin stroke to attack the ball?

Hi Yap,

If they push with long pimples then it won't have much backspin.  It is more likely to have no spin or a bit of topspin if you put backspin on the previous ball.

The best shot to play would be to topspin this ball or use a counterhit stroke.

Alois, I watched the show on pressure and I aw Jeff pushing the ball short but my opponent is doing some awkward push with the long pimples. They get a full swing with the push that it is like a chop. It also seems to have a sidespin on the ball. How can I topspin that ball. By the way the ball is long.

If the ball is long then you can definitely topspin it.  If the ball has no spin or topspin, then come more forward on your topspin.
