Hello coach!!! I mostly win all the matches which are conducted in our institute...But! A player came against me with some rubber called short pimples or anti, I think so.  I lost 4-0 with him..Can you tell me the match tactics of playing with them! Thank you:)

Hi Shrihari,

If it is Short Pimples the thing to remember is that the pimples will flatten out the spin on the ball. If they block your topspin the ball will tend to skid through more than you are used to.  A good way to play against them is to use a lot of either backspin or topspin.

We have a tutorial on Help Playing Short Pimpled Rubber in our Tactics section.
