My coach have taught me to keep my push small and gentle.

He told me to keep the movement of my bat small. 

However, I find that this doesn't work against very heavy spins. I need to really come under the ball and slice it to get the ball over.

So my question is, should my push always be small and gentle, or they should have more momentum and spin, or it can vary?

Hi Johnny,

For the heavy backspin ball you can still just adjust the angle of your racket even further back so that the ball goes over the net.  You really don’t need a big swing.

And how to chop (really chop,put my own powerful backspin) a heavy long push ?

Is it even possible?
