Hi Alois

I have been working towards lifting the backspin ball and now I notice that even though I am able to lift the same consistently , it creates a pattern for my opponent to wait for the slow topspin and attack it , i.e after they play their chop to my forehand.

What points do I focus on when lifting the ball so that my opponent should not attack  the same. Do I need to ensure that the ball is not too high over the net or do I need to focus on placing the ball a little deep on the other end of the table.

Thank You

Regards

Grenville

Hi Grenville,

The key to make this shot more effective is variation.

I doesn't matter how good the shot is there needs to be variation because even if you play a really fast topspin to a great spot, if you do that every time, your opponent will get used to it and start to anticipate the shot and get it back.

Low can be good but not all the time.  Height variation can also give you an advantage.

Work on variation on the shot.  Variation of speed, placement and spin is what you should work on.
