Hello sir,

Sir I am very feared to play my next match after losing state championship. My freinds told me that you don't have ability to play in table tennis but I never lose hope. Sir please gives me suggestion after my defeat.  I am a hard problem against chopper. Hence defeated by a chopper bad luck.

Hi Devansh,

Even Ma Long loses matches and plays badly for his level sometimes.

Progress is not always upwards.  Sometimes you go down a level before going up.  Losses are all part of the development of a good Table Tennis player.

Keep working hard on your game.

thanks sir for answer, you said that training improvement is needed, I am going on my table tennis club regularly and I don't get my type of players in my club. my freinds don't want to improve themselves but I want to train hard. they don't know simple block also. I am a hard trainer and a very tough attacker like timo boll. My forehand topspins had some sidespin and my backhand is very powerful. so how can I train myself against choppers remember my club freinds don't know chopping. How can I train Myself.

please help sir your answer is a cure for me.

You can get them to push to you and practice the topspin against backspin or perhaps you can get them to feed you multiball with backspin.

but sir I trained myself by this type 1000 of times. this training is for beginners  and not improved me a lot. I want to do training topspin against block or topspin with almost 20 rallies.

It is important in that case to find a chopper to play with.  Is there a club nearby that you can find one.  Choppers are not easy to find.

There are very less choppers in India with good chopping. but yes there are choppers whose bats are very expensive and with powerful spin. I can not do topspin on that ball because I wasn't trained yet. So by this my opponent easily find my weakness and the result is loose.
