I would like to ask how to read my own spin. I have noticed several times that when I do some high level chop,the opponent often,when unsure how to deal with the level of backspin as it is not common, does some emergency..push or something,simply uses an approach like "I do not know what to do with this,I will just touch it carefully". In most cases they are surprised and are quite unaware of what did I just do.
Though then,I mostly get a ball where I am myself quite unaware of what is returning to me,although this reaction from opponents is desired. If the opponent react as I described,it is according to my plan-but then I am unable to react,as in that instant no player knows what spin is actually on the ball. Thus,I make a lot of mistakes off these balls,especially if they are high and/or short.
If they are long and low,I usually chop it comfortably(or lift it,if I am sure about the spin). But else,I am not sure what to do with it.
What should I do with such situations?
It sounds like it is more a matter of dealing with the higher push ball rather than the spin on the ball.
It can be awkward because it is different however if you start to work on this shot you will find it quite easy. Come in closer to the table and hit the ball when it is at its highest point. Your opponent will be close to the table so it is more a matter of placing the ball well with enough power to get through them. You might find playing into their middle or cross over point can be effective in this situation.
