I find playing against pimples can be challenging but I think, in a way, it can be even more tricky in doubles. You don't want your partner to be receiving your spin after you've hit to the person with the pimples. Some coordination between you and your partner is required, i.e. when you play chop to the player with pimples, they should topspin his or her return. Is it better to reduce the amount of spin you put on your serves and shots to an opponent with pimples, or is it better to exploit the spin coming back because of the physics involved? Avoid side-spin? Interested in your thoughts.
It totally depends on what your partner wants as a return. If they like the topspin ball coming after a push then you should do that. If they don't like playing pimples then perhaps you can think about not putting too much spin on the ball to make it easier for them. You need to know your partners likes and dislikes.
