Hi Indrani,

You should try to attack consistently...

Depending on the chopper you can vary your strategy.  If they are very consistent in getting the ball back, you may need to be more aggressive.

In our Match Strategy section we also have a couple of lessons on Playing A Defensive Chopper and Playing A Modern Chopper that will also help.

But I am not able to attack consistently. I can either do three attacks consistently and fail afterwards or I can keep on pushing the ball. So now which option from the above should I use against a defensive player?I don't have much time as I have a tournament on 18th July.

Also, how can I develop an "attacking consistently" ability in the future. As when I attack two or three balls continuously I feel like that this time I will not be able to attack. Is there any drills?

Hi Indrani,

The best thing is to practice the topspin against backspin.  If you can find a chopper to work with that would be great.

In the meantime, for the tournament, just push until you are ready to make a topspin.  Good luck with it.
