Greetings Pingskills, if my opponent does a pendulum serve and I return with my long pimpled, is it true that I totally don't have to care what is the spin direction and just return, since there's not much friction on my long pimpled rubber?
You don't need to worry as much about the return but you still have to know the effect the serve is going to have on the pimple rubber. For example a heavy backspin serve is going to go up a little off your long pimples. However there is less effect than if you were using inverted rubber.
