My friend is a pips out hitter, and he is having trouble getting the ball over the net without pushing it. Should he try looping it over, or should he be able to get it over with a drive shot? if so, how?

Hi Caleb,

The short pips don't allow him to generate as much topspin on the ball or grip with the rubber.  He can open up the angle of his racket more to allow for the lack of grip.
