Hey Pingskills,

Although Zhang loves to pen the rally with his special signature BH over the table shot, I notice sometimes he just pushes the ball normally. 

Does he choose to do this because its part of his plan and tactics (I notice he tends to do this agains Xu Xin especially). Or do you think the ball is simply too short, low and heavy with backspin to return it? 

Thanks you in advance,

Hi Arlen,

He will be using it strategically against different opponents.  He may not think that it is effective against Xu Xin.  I think he can almost use the stroke off any type of spin.  It may also be that it isn't in the right position to make the stroke.  I notice that is the ball is a little wider on the forehand side he doesn't use it as much.
