Dear Pingskills Coaches,

Is there any other way to return a smash other than making a lob or chopping?

Many Thanks

Hi Yacine,

You could try to block it from close to the table but this is very risky as you will not have much time at all to see the ball.  

You can also try to topspin it from back from the table.  This is an option but you need to see the ball early and have time to play a full topspin stroke.
