Playing the "Unique" Style

Larry Hodges You’ve probably all had the experience of playing someone who plays "different." They might use a "unique" surface – long pips, antispin, hardbat, etc. Or they might have "weird" shots – sidespin, dead balls, etc. Regardless, keep in mind that there is a reason why these surfaces or shots are not as common as other surfaces or shots – so use your head and take advantage of their weaknesses, rather than complain about the "uniqueness."
