1. Hit Quality
The so-called quality consists of four elements: speed, rotation, strength, and landing point. When hitting ball, two elements can be quality, and three elements can be high quality. If all four elements are present, opponent will basically take over. No more, so as long as there are two of these basic elements, it is enough to make up quality. Force friction refers to force and rotation, which is different from simple force.
Second, reverse rotation control strategy
The long ball that opponent hits must provide a high quality return. You have to learn how to use strength instead of dead strength and try to reduce gap so that opponent cannot produce a quality riposte.
Focus on short ball, all steps must be up, and opponent can start immediately when he swings short one, because probability of long balls in game is small, and long balls are used only as an emergency treatment.
After ball is served, go forward and prepare to go forward. When ball is long and then backspin occurs, it has a certain quality and is also an emergency. If ball is short, you can improve quality by raising your hand.
The best pre-assessment is no pre-assessment, more preparation for high-probability events, and emergency preparation for low-probability events.
3. How to deal with reverse left rotation
For a long ball that has been rubbed, you can also put down racket and not paint with your hands when you play. While ball touches table, just touch it with your hand. You do not need to spin ball on table, do not push hard, but twist reverse spin.
The jump ball has both speed and spin, its arc is not very high, and quality is there too.
After your opponent's swing is short, you should confidently step to side and can turn and pull straight with your arms. When twisting, your wrist should turn.
