About my improvement vs pimples:
I was thinking that I got used to play vs pimples. But I was wrong. Yesterday I played in a tournament. I played vs 5 pimples users. 3 of them I beat easily. Because they couldn't return my FH topspins, and they got pimples only in the BH sides. 1 of them I almost beat, but I lost the decisive set 9:11, he got pimples on both sides. But the last one was very hard.
My tactic vs pimples:
If I do 2 pushes in a row, one of them will surely bounce very high then he smashes. If I do 2 or more topspins in a row, the incoming backspin increases very much, and I can't lift the ball. So vs pimples I try to do topspin, push, topspin, push, ... . Usually, when pimple users try to smash my pushes the ball went to the net. My tactic didn't work for the hardest pimple user. I do topspin, he returns, then I do push, he smashes. It looks almost impossible to return his flat smashes.
How to beat such players, coach?
Sounds like you came up against a good player.
The main thing in this situation is to make the push stroke more effective. Try to make the quality of the push better by keeping it lower or pushing it to a better place on the table. Perhaps more to the side they don't attack as well with.
You can also try rolling the ball with less topspin but more height instead of pushing this ball.
Ultimately, I think the best is to have the ability to topspin more balls in a row against the pimples. This means being able to adjust your stroke to lift the very heavy topspin.
Sounds like a good topic for a tutorial.
