I play with anti on my backhand and I noticed that I seem to be having a harder time playing against fellow anti players (as well as long/short pips players) than with players using inverted rubber.

Specifically, I am having a hard time when it comes to BH to BH pushing from my anti to their anti/pips. I am also having problems blocking/countering their BH anti/pips attacks with my anti rubber.

Any advice? Thanks!

anti against LP, the flight of the ball could be more weird... ive tried anti against LP, i dare not drive it...the important thing is to read the spin....if they chop do a lift and flick it at the same time, also do try to place it...its a difficult technique. there would be other option like twiddling to the inverted side of the rubber and do topspin or something...or maybe a quick step around and flip with the fh.  situation could be difficult on both sides, i know i would sweat in this kind of situation...

What I used to do in a short pips vs short pips encounter or short pips vs long pips chopper is to avoid hitting as many backhands as possible. I would try to emphasise placement above power in attacking, specifically rolling over the ball to keep a mild curve to keep it consistant.

Since you're a combination player its much easier, play like a forehand attacker. Step around as much as possible and attack, you should be used to players of your own type so it shouldn't be too difficult to find weaknesses.

Everyone has a hard time playing against anti players, even anti players! This is because the most common type of player I think is the right-handed looper with inverted rubbers. So everyone gets the most practice playing against this type of player, unless they specifically find other types to play against.

So left-handed players have the advantage because lefties are rare, so people are not used to switching tactics to play against lefties. But lefty players also have most of their experience vs. righties, so lefties will also have some trouble playing against other lefties.

As an anti player, you're used to returning topspins from inverted players. Now that you have to play anti players who don't spin, you have to re-learn how to play, sort of.
