I have watched just now a video about how to dominate LP, in which you define basic strategy how to play against LP. Now, Alois, in your video you explain that LP converts spin, so, if you serve back spin, you will get a topspin. But, sometimes, when I push backspin ball, or try to curve it on the side, it goes to the net. Why so? I saw some Joo's returns, even if it is a short ball coming to him, he somehow does chopping-like movement, starting higher with his bat and curve more to the side and up. Of course, I know he is a super player, but, how does he do that? And one other thing: many players have basic strategy against LP, which is: one topspin, one push. So, try to imagine this: my opponent top spins the ball, I am away from the table, and I chop it. Then my opponent pushes with backspin. I am running to catch the ball. But, how should I play against that ball, without giving a possibility to my opponent to attack? Thank you
When they play this short ball with backspin, try to get there in time to be balanced which is the hard part. Then, play an attacking ball with the long pimples. Or if you push the ball make sure it is deep and fast to their weaker corner, which is usually the backhand.
The sidespin push is tricky but if the ball is going into the net, lift the ball more upwards with your follow through.
