Hi Alois, I happen to notice that there's a guy in my club who plays with a Chinese penhold racket but plays like traditional penhold. One side is long pimples ox and the other side is short pimples. The hard part is that this guy can twiddle anytime in the rally and he is good at using both pimple rubbers on forehand and backhand. How would you approach this kind of player and how to approach a style you've never seen before in general?
Sounds like an awkward customer. I would think about playing wide to their forehand side. They tend to be able to twiddle and do more on the backhand side but can't attack fast with either side on their forehand. Then force them into their backhand side when they are spread wide.
