I have a district level tournament coming soon in like 7-8 days,lets catch it as a week.
I have a bug in my game which is itching me.
During my training hours I learnt how to pull off a backhand topspin against backspin. Now the problem with this stroke of mine is that I find it difficult to pull off a fast backhand topspin shot. What I do during games is I hit a slow,spinny topspin down the line or in the middle and pivot to be ready for the forehand kill.
I would have to admit that I have a stronger,offensive forehand which can really destroy a loose backspin or a defensive counterhit.
I request you to help me with my game as to how i use my strokes in the big tournament.
I have won a few of my junior tournaments even when i hadnt developed the backhand topspin as my forehand pivot was too hot to handle. My backhand mostly consisted and still consists of a good push, chop and blocking ability. I can use my backhand for a topspin nowadays but i think its not properly developed.
Please help me as to how with these set of skills i can make a difference at the tournament.
Thank You Alois and Jeff for igniting a whole new fire in table tennis learners' hearts to really master the game.
I think you can now start to use the backhand topspin in some situations where they are pushing long to your backhand. However, still remember that the way you win a lot of points is with your forehand attack. So base your game around trying to get as many forehand attacks as you can.
The advantage of now having a backhand topspin is to be able to topspin the pushes deep on your backhand side which will allow you to stay on the offensive and then bring your forehand into play.
I think a common error players make is that because they have a new shot they use it too much and forget about what really wins them points.
