Hi 

I wanted to know how Ma Long does his awesome backhand chop block.

Hi Zaid,

He comes down and around the side of the ball.  This is a difficult stroke to master.  You need a lot of touch to be able to control the speed of the topspin.

Could you please do a video response

Good idea Zaid.  We will put it on the list.  Take a look at this win the meantime. Kenta Matsudaira's Sidespin Block which is also pretty good.

Try it against a slow spinny topspin though!

No need to do it against a slow spinny topspin imho, you should be able to attack it.

That holds true of any incoming shot though

Even a low and short underspin shot?
