Hi Ayushi,

The first thing is to learn and feel the reaction of the ball to each of your types of shot remembering that the long pips reverses the type of spin that is on the ball.

A simple way to start is to push the ball and this will give you a topspin ball back that you can attack.  If that comes back it will come back with backspin.  You need to adjust to this ball.  You can either push this or if you have the ability you can topspin the backspin ball as well.

We have a tutorial on Help Against a Chopper with Long Pimples.
