Hey guys,

What kind of approach do you take against a player with a very unorthodox style, like hard pushing, sidespin chops and weird lobs.  I'm good against good players with the right strokes but how do you play these frustrating amateurs

Hi Fred,

These players can be frustrating to play but the first thing is to accept that they are playing a legitimate game that you need to master.

Once you get better with your strokes you can overpower these sort of players.  These type of players need time to play their unorthodox strokes, so if you are able to play a good basic game of topspin that cuts down their time you will start to frustrate them.

Firstly, play hard and see what you can do.
