Hey Alois I have a question for you. When you play a person who pushes the ball lots then at any given moment will counter attack or drive the ball very hard, what should you do? How do you deal with them - play against their style.

Normally I stand right up to the table and play ping pong with them keeping the ball very short and extremely low so they cant attack. Then when they sit one up I counter attack-drive-loop kill the ball very hard. Is this a good idea or not. Anyway how do you deal with these sorts of players.? Cheers Justin

Hi Justin,

I try to make the attack as soon as possible.  I think it is harder if you push a few balls to then make the attack.  If you make the attack off the first ball it will unsettle them and make it easier for you.  You can also keep the ball short and take the first opportunity when they put the ball long.

if the ball is too short so what should one do if he is not good in push or a attacker.

Then keep the ball short till they play it long for you.
