January 27, 2020


It’s Yangyang Here I talked about the fast powerful loop and slow spinny loop in my previous video before Please check out here for more details In this video, I will teach you how to block a slow and spinny loop. Some players may find it hard to adjust the racket angle some may find it hard to control the strength, Don’t worry, I will break into details about all of those in a minute. First of all, I want to show you some common mistakes that people do when they block a slow and spinny loop. if your racket angle too open, it may goes out of the table if your racket angle too close, you could easily hit the net, Or the ball goes to high, it goes easier for your opponent to smash First, you have to be aware that in what kind of situation you opponent would do a slow and spinny loop if you push a no spin ball to him it’s hard for him to do a spinny loop he probably will just do a powerful loop If you push a heavy underspin ball to your opponent you opponent would most likely to do a spinny and slow loop in order to get the ball over the net This means you could predict if you opponent would do a slow and spinny loop by the spin of you send to him. After you predict the ball is a heavy and spinny loop, the first thing you need to do is to take a step in because most of the spinny loop is shorter than the powerful loop, step in to get close to the ball. Here comes the most difficult part, racket angle. Why racket angle is hard for lots of players because there is no standard rule for racket angle you can’t say put 60 degree, put 45 degrees to block the ball the racket angle depends on the spin of the coming ball. for spinny loop, we will try to close our racket angle more, face down like this After you set the right racket angle, push your hand forehand forward when you block the ball a little bit like this Because the spinny and slow loop doesn’t have a lot power, if you just block like this, you would give your opponent an easy shot to smash you. But if you could push forward a little bit sending the ball to the deep of the table, it would hard for your opponent to smash Sweet, that’s all for today’s lesson, thanks for watching. please practice this exercise with your partner to test on the racket angle and the strength you put on the ball Please leave comments let me know if you have any questions and don’t forget to subscribe my channel, like and share this video Alright I will see you guys in my next video, bye
