Hi Alois & Jeff,
I play long pips on my backhand and I often get high, short balls returned to me off my pips. For a pips player, these are golden opportunities to finish the point, but I struggle with this shot. I usually miss long, but then I over correct and dump the ball into the net. These ball are too short to loop, whats the correct play?
If they are high try to get around on your forehand and attack the ball. You can topspin it if it is high enough, even if it is a bit shorter. Move close to the table and get over the ball. Often the error comes if you are not in a good position to play the ball and mod to fate time players get themselves too far from the table and the ball drops short on them.
