 Table tennis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lob: The defensive lob is possibly the most visually-impressive shot in the sport of table tennis, and it is deceptive in its simplicity.
To execute a lob, a defensive player first backs off the table 8-10 feet (advanced players sometimes go 20 feet or more); then, the stroke itself consists of simply lifting the ball to an enormous height before it falls back to the opponent's side of the table.
For instance, though the opponent may smash the ball hard and fast, a good defensive lob could quite possibly be even harder to return due to the unpredictability (and heavy amounts) of the spin on the ball.

You have to prevent the computer from TOUCHING the ball, so when he is far from the ball and plays a defence lob, you have FAILED because his lob is slow and therefore TAKES time.
Nevertheless, I noticed that the AI is rather basic since it plays the ball towards the side that is the furthest from you at the very moment of its shot.
I regret this lack of variety, but it can be useful to anticipate where the computer will play its strong flat shot (after you played a weak lob): starting not too early (otherwise you will run too early to the other side), run to the side opposite just as it's gonna play its shot.

When a beginning/intermediate player backs up and lobs, he develops off-the-table mobility and footwork, and learns to react to hard-hit shots from off the table.
Later on, as they become more advanced, their off-the-table play, especially covering ground when looping or counter-looping, or simply reacting to hard-hit shots from off the table, is much better than it would have been otherwise.
