Hey! how should I improve my chopping skills?
Chopping is a defensive stroke designed to return an opponent's spin-heavy shots with heavy backspin, often forcing them into making errors.
Choose a racket with a high control rating and pips-out or long-pips rubber if you want to focus on defensive chopping. This equipment helps to enhance backspin and control.
For chopping, you'll want a lower center of gravity than normal. Keep your knees slightly bent and your body weight forward.
Position yourself a bit further back from the table than you would for a typical forehand or backhand stroke. This gives you more time to react to your opponent's shots.
