good day sir,

what will be the spin of the ball if I serve backspin and chopped by long pips?

Hi Joshnathan,

That will come back to you with topspin.  The Long Pimples will reverse the spin.

It seems a common misconception that long pips reverse spin It seems to me they just return the spin in the same direction.

They definitely reverse. If they don't, and a chopped ball comes back with chop, then the player in question probably isn't using them properly...!

so you mean there will be no difference if my opponent will chop or will just block?
