Hi Alois 

I have a match today and since I use backhand long pimples and am an attacking chopper I would like to know the approach I should take during conventional pre match backhand to backhand counters. For example, what do competitive long pimple players do in tournaments ? I don't want to counter with my lp as I am not good at it. Another option is to turn and return counters inside out with my forehand. A third option is to twiddle my rubber n hit backhand counters with my forehand rubber. 

What would be most appropriate, considering that the third option will not reveal my lp rubber (incase he doesn't notice the colour and doesn't ask to see my rubbers).

And again, as I asked, what do national level lp players do when knocking on the backhand?

Hi Azhar,

Most players will either change the side of the rubber and hit the Backhand with the normal rubber or pivot and use their forehand.  they will very rarely use their pimples during a warm up.
