At the 1982 European championship final 16 year old Jan Ove Waldner played against 20 year old Appelgren. How do you think Table Tennis changed since then. How would 16 y.o. Waldner play against the contemporary 16-17s?

Its amazing how passive they both are on return compared to the modern player. Thanks for sharing.

It was a different game with the smaller ball. In my humble oppinion service return is easier nowadays with the new balls.
