What is the best reply to a player who simply sends every shot back with push & chop shots? When I meet these players it feels like the rally can go on all night & I feel like I am playing the ball against a wall. I start to think that I have to do something to end the rally & then, of course, I make the mistake & lose the point.
Any suggestions please?
It can be frustrating playing against players that only defend. That is their main aim.
I find that it is easier to make an attack earlier in the rally. So try some 3rd ball attacks. Utilise your serve or return of serve to set you up for the attack. The attack becomes more effective because you have your opponent closer to the table. When you push a few balls to them they have time to settle into their defensive position and then when you make the attack they don’t have far to move.
