At my office where I play Table Tennis, I have noticed that almost everyone makes long serves. Earlier, I used to play mostly use push or sometimes forehand counterhit to return these serves. Now a days, I am trying to use only forehand topspin. While I am able to return some of those serves quite well but now that my opponents are realizing that I am getting good at playing topspin, they are starting to vary their serves a bit. Although their serves are still long enough to play top spin but I am not able to adjust my shots, and as a result, sometimes I hit the net or hit it outside the table. Now, everyone is starting to advise me that I can't play the same shot to all the serves, but I am not willing to agree. What do you suggest? Do I need to really think twice before playing this shot when the serve is long? Their constant pestering is making me lose confidence from my shot.
You can play a topspin on all the long balls but you need to make small adjustments for each serve and the variation of spin. It will take time to get this right but it is the best way to go in the long term.
