More friction will affect the speed of the ball and then reduce the surprise of the ball picking, but it will also increase the accuracy of the ball return, and it can gradually increase the impact component according to the level when practicing the ball picking. 2. In the competition, when picking the backspin ball, the first thing is to pick the slant line, the first thing is to pick the hitting point for the middle and back side of the ball, so as to avoid strong backspin, and then improve the hit rate of the return ball. 3. Lead action should not be too large, mainly forearm power, hitting point should be in the right front of the body. As much as picking the ball has the advantage of surprise, but because of the explosive power of the wrist, the feel of the strike and the rotation of the ball, there is a high demand, so table tennis friends should practice more when using this skill.
