I would like to know how to smash a high chopped ball. Also, I would like to know if the technique to do so will be different if the chopped ball comes from a hardbat with pimple rubber (no sponge). The ball looks easy to smash however it goes to the net when smashing it. I would appreciate your fast response.
Smashing a high ball that has backspin is a little dangerous and can be difficult. It depends a lot on the actual height. If it is above shoulder height then it is definitely smashable. You do need to allow for the backspin by opening the angle of your blade.
If the ball is a little lower it is probably best to topspin the ball. You can still make a fast topspin that will win you the point.
Off the hard bat it will come through very flat so you will need to lift the ball a little more. Probably better to make a topspin in most cases.
