I'm a penhold looper and am having trouble getting the ball over the net on my returns. My opponent often attacks, has good placement limiting the time I have to get to the ball. I'm having trouble generating enough pace on the ball which usually falls short of the net. Any advice on attacking against dead Chinese rubber? Korey
It sounds like you might need to open the angle of your racket slightly. When playing against dead rubber the ball will sometimes reverse in spin so the more topspin you put on your shot the more backspin comes back to you. Even if it doesn't reverse, it will come back very flat so it will feel like it has backspin. Therefore opening the angle of yoru racket or lifting the ball more will work.
