Here's one Ping Pong robot that could be better than you. It can cover lots of ground, cycle through backhand and forehand shots and hit the ball effortlessly.

The DIY ping pong robot UHTTR-1, which was made by Ulf Hoffman was in development for 2 years. See how the robot's camera senses the ball and the software tells the motor where to move the arm. It won't be able to beat world class players yet for sure, but it'll accompany you in a game you'll lose most of the time if you're bored.
