Hello Alois and Jeff,

as I have bought new rubbers and become capable of playing normal strokes on both sides despite still using longpips,I have watched some other players using placement game,such as Oh Sang Eun,and tried to implement some of their tactics and strokes into my arsenal. However,I noticed that sometimes he sends a shot "reversedly". (I mean,he sends a wide shot from his opponent directly down the line or even absolutely off the line of play. For example,he gets the ball to the middle forehand and he uses forehand to send the ball to his righthanded opponent's wide backhand while still facing his opponent's forehand seemingly even with his bat.) Have you any clue how does he do it?
As with my new rubbers I can play normal strokes,I would like to learn some of this game.

Hi DK,

It is all about the wrist and the timing.  If you hit the ball later and bend your wrist back more you will be able to get the ball down the line.
