Hello, I would like to ask: it's said a lot that long pips do a lot of spin reversal, but even with inverted blade when you chop a topspin you also reverse the spin! Same you do with pips: you chop, you change the incoming topspin into backspin. I would like to know, what is the difference between two types of spin reversal: with long pips and inverted rubber.

Hi Alex,

You are right the ball still has spin reversal but when it is with an inverted rubber it is mainly due to the direction of movement of the racket.  With a long pimple rubber it is due to the friction or lack of friction of the pimples which allows the ball to keep spinning int he same direction.
