Hi coach, my name is Tri tran, I play table tennis as good as 1800 level in US. I have a robot at home . It can shoots topspin, downspin and sidespin. I would like to practice on topspin and downspin but the balls shoots out are not really true.
There are so strong on downspin. The robot makes the balls stayed on the air and return back. It make me lot my timing when I played with a real player. What is your recommendation?
How can I use this robot to make it work like real balls. Thank you very much for your help Sincerely Tri
Does your robot have a setting that can change the amount of spin you put on the ball? CHeck the manual of the robot to see if you can make some alterations. Each robot is different. If you let me know the type of robot it is, then other readers may be able to help you with this.
If not then you will just have to use what it has. It is a limitation of the robot but if that is your only option for training then you need to use it the best you can.
The timing does not need to change of hitting against extreme spin, you need to brush the ball more and have a more vertical stroke to lift the ball. You can then also use the speed of your racket to lift the ball. The faster the swing comes through the more lift you will get.
