How to play the right backhand topspin like Ma Long!

Yesterday, we saw how London 2012 Olympic Champion Zhang Jike (http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?10892-Zhang-Jike-How-to-the-Forehand-Topspin!) played his forehand topspin. Today we have a new video, how reigning world champion Ma Long plays a backhand topspin

Watch the video below, you can see Ma Long's backhand in many different practice environments. The video goes into great detail with lots of great slow motion footage to highlight important technical points.

Enjoy!

Looks like this is all BH loop vs. backspin.

Is this the same stroke if you are farther away from the table?

pretty much, but inside the table is all about the wrist=banana flick :)
