Tomorrow I have club championschips and i have some questions:

There is a left handed very Backhand oriented Player. So how must i serve (Spin speed and placement)?

How must I play against a Backhand oriented player generally?

And the last one: how Must I Play against a player who Often makes pushes with different Spins?

I Hope i didnt bother you guys,

Hi Lukas,

Try to play the ball short to the forehand side or deep to the forehand pocket.  This is often a weaker area for them.  You can serve the ball to this position as well.

If you are playing a player with different spins, first get a feel for the type of spin they are putting on the ball.  Just focus on returning the ball on the table.  Then once you become more comfortable, you can start to attack some of these balls.
