Perhaps he's a real EJ, and changes equipment often. He should fit right in here, if he is. :lol: :lol: :lol:

To be honest, I'm a little surprised he uses that blade... I thought he'd use something more rigid.

Alex, I note your kind offer to pass on questions.

Could you ask Sharad

1) how did he learn SP technique? Was he coached by a SP expert or did he figure it out himself?

2) could he please explain the technique of SP pushing (against topspin, backspin and dead balls), how he gets his pushes to be so fast and aggressive, and what are the keys to effective SP pushing to not allow a strong attack.

Thanks!
PK

I had a good chat with Sharad about short pimple play yesterday, after he beat me in our pennant game. :swear: :lol:

As I'm sure some of you wanted confirmed, he still uses a Butterfly M. Maze blade, with Xiom Zava red or forehand and Spectol blk on backhand. I forgot to ask the thickness, but I'm pretty sure he's told me before he uses max, and it did look quite thick.

I asked him about the types of balls that short pimple players have trouble with. Although he may have interpreted the question as "how do you beat you? :oops: :lol: ", that wasn't actually my intent, and he was more than happy to answer anything I wanted to know.

I'll post a few tips here shortly as I refresh my memory. :oops:

He uses Xiom Zava on his forehand, and he gets very good spin on his serves. Against deep backspin serves he tends to roll them back, creating a low and low-spin ball, which he places well and is hard to attack. Anything short he can flick back or place them so well it's again hard to attack. Any fast topspin attacks he blocks back with easy. Slow, deep and heavy topspin or backspin he says is harder to attack, so that's a good strategy against short pimple players. He said he much prefers pace to spin, and any loose balls only slightly high he can crack for winners, and it looks almost effortlessly!

On the backhand, where he uses Spectol, the situation is actually quite similar. However the lower grip of the Spectol makes it hard to lift backspin, so it's more susceptible to mistake when serving short heavy backspin. Deep backspin balls are hard to attack, so that's one way to setup for a attack. Anything topspin is just blocked so consistently and well places, that you need much better foot work to attack.

No-spin balls did not seem that much of a problem for him, as he tended to roll them back consistently, but were not attacked, so I assume they're harder for a short pimple player to attack.

When I played him at the Vic Open Vets I thought he said he was using Spectol both sides. Perhaps I misheard him or perhaps he changed the fh. I subsequently play him in the Sth Australian Open Vets and didnt asked what he used then.
