Hi Phil,

I think the main thing is to not try to do too much with the pips.  Think about being more consistent with them and placing the ball well.  If you are more consistent than your opponent you can keep it on that diagonal.  However, if you opponent is more consistent then think about switching to their forehand side and making them attack with the inverted rubber.  Hopefully that works for you.

Phillip,I have exprienced something similar.
I am a defender,I rarely block with pips although I learn it.
As for me,I simply switch to one-wing play and try to avoid clashing our two rubbers especially on the table. This greatly depends on what style you and your opponent uses.
May I ask if you are also longpips user and if,what style do you play?
