I want to ask you about ma long's service receive. you said before if opponent give ball right side spin we must change angle of bat left side but at below video (at 04:31) fan zhendong give ball right sidespin and ma long change bat angle right not left... why he do this? here is video https://youtu.be/-WXAAAdGJ7o
second question ma long almost receive every service with forehand push he didnt use backhand? why he do this (can we receive all service like this? It would be right to focus on all service receiving the forehand without dealing with other forms of receive)
sorry for my englısh I hope I could explain
If you watch closely he does change the angle very much to face the right on contact to counteract the spin.
You can receive with either forehand or backhand whichever you feel more comfortable with. Ma Long probably feels that the forehand against this serve gives him a better angle. You should develop both returns as different players have different serves that will be awkward to deal with using one or the other.
