Hi I play a left hander regularly who has a very good forehand but a weak backhand. I want to play to his backhand but he stands as far to his backhand side as possible so it's very hard too play to his backhand. I tried playing to wide forehand but his footwork is very good and he gets there in time to attack. What shall I do? Thanks
The key here is the next ball. You are doing the right thing by hitting the ball wide to his forehand first. Then think about just blocking the ball to his backhand side next once you have exposed his backhand corner.
You don't have to play a strong shot there just use the pace of his shot to position the next one into that side of the table. The fact that he has a weak backhand can be exposed.
