I recently changed my style of playing to defensive type (eg: playing as chopper for 1 year). However, i felt it quite impossible to chop back (hard to catch the ball and if I manage to chop, it will fly high or out of the table) when the opponent give a super topspin returning my backspin.(not normal topspin, it is kinda like super super fast with a lot of topspin in it). I can chop back if the opponent gives a normal or slightly a bit more topspin than normal low and safe on both side. Both of my rubber are smooth (not rough: long-pimpled, not considering changing to long-pimpled as I am used to smooth surface type rubber). My attacking skills are pretty ok i think, I have played for at least more than 5 yrs, as I realise I have to play variation in order to win. Any suggestion on handling that super topspin type of ball with chops? And kindly give some match strategy for my case. Thanks a lot:)
It is about keeping the ball lower and with more backspin to stop them from making that faster topspin shot.
Focus on getting your shots low and also deep on the table.
If that opponent likes the heavier backspin and can still generate a good topspin, then try a less spin chop which some players find more difficult to generate a lot of spin with.
