- Aim for the middle and extremes.
By aiming at the chopper's midsection, you force them to make a quick decision of whether to play with the forehand or backhand. This will make them move their feet and give a less effective return or produce unforced errors.
Also aim at the extreme sides so they have to run around and might be caught out of position.
- Mix in short drop shots.
Don't loop continuously; your own topspin may come back heavier and heavier, creating more difficulty for you. Every few balls you should return as a short drop shot, just a light underspin tap to keep the ball as short as possible. This will make the chopper run in close to the table and may cause unforced errors. If you can make the ball double bounce on the table, it will be incredibly hard for the chopper to reach (when they're far back).
