I am willing to switch to short pimples, because, often, I get chance to attack my opponents, but I lack a little bit of control in my shots. If I am right, short pimples are a little bit easier to control, and still, you can play defense with them. Perhaps you could tell me more about advantages of short pimples. I am searching already for short pips, maybe you could give me an advice about that, which short pips and thickness of the sponge.
And also, I would like to know the following, for the start:
How to return these serve with short pimples:
1. Long sidespin backspin
2. Long sidespin topspin
3. Short sidespin backspin
4. Short sidespin topspin
You see, I was good with defense, but, my opponents tend to keep me close to the table, they make high balls, and then I make mistake when hitting. And I kind'a like attacking a little bit again. Can you help me with this issue? Thank you in advance
Short pimples have more control but they are not easy to control themselves because you don’t get as much topspin so you need to be more accurate.
If you want to defend they are not ideal either. None of the top defenders use short pips.
The principles of returning serves is the same as with normal rubber, just the spin won’t have as much effect on the short pimples.
