Hi, Thanks for the great site with so much valuable knowledge you share.

I am intermediate player with all around offensive style. I use Korbel with Donic Baracuda on FH and Donic M3 max on BH. I like this set up as it give me a reasonable control. What I am struggling with is playing aggressive, fast players that tend to smash or loop very fast. I have problem blocking their attack. I feel like I need to back off the table significantly to have more control returning their attack. But when I do that I feel more vulnerable, and I cannot cover the sides of the table properly.  Do you recommend to stay mid distance to the table and just practice blocking?

Hi Krystian,

I think the real answer is to stop your opponent from playing so aggressively.  Think about playing the ball lower and to more difficult positions on the table to stop their stronger shots.
