Hello, I've got a question concerning short pimples and I've already watched your video about it, which I found very useful :). Basically I understand the cycle that if I attack to the short pimples with a heavy topspin, and if an opponent blocks, then I get a ball with a some backspin which I have to lift. But my question is what to do next? Should I attack then with some aggressive topspin or will the ball again come back with some backspin?
The short pimples will flatten out the spin. It may feel like backspin but usually it is just less topspin than you would expect from inverted rubber. It doesn't reverse the spin on the ball however it will feel difficult to lift or flat a strong topspin from. Long pimples will reverse the spin on the ball.
Sometimes after one or two topspins you can push the next ball to relieve the pressure of making the topspin against the flat ball. You can put that push to an effective position and hopefully get an easier ball to attack next.
