Raymond Tong Asked 10 years ago

So i have been playing table tennis for around a year and 1/4 and i have pretty much mastered my backhand slice (where you put your bat near parallel to the table and it generates back-side spin) and a decent forehand slice, I also have a OK loop(not mastered) which has more spin than speed and a average FH/BH smash. What would you recommend working on?

 Also during competitions i tend to play really defensive and not want to play my attacking strokes because im not confident in them. is there any sort of way to cure that.

Hi Raymond,

Keep working on these strokes.  You will develop the confidence to play them in matches once they become more natural.

Practice the topspin against backspin ball a lot.  This is really relevant for a game situation as this happens a lot in a game.

Practicing this will help you to feel more confident in making this stroke in the match.
