View Full Version : Samsonov Serve Practice

10-31-2011, 12:42 PM
At the recent World Table Tennis Championships Vladimir Samsonsov was spotted walming up his serves prior to a match!

Oh yeah not to mention you can see Timo Boll with his TShirt off. Youtuber mlw22160 quoted, "You can see Timo bare-chested off on the left side at the very beginning. Looks like his muscles could compare with Zhang Jike. Too bad Timo never got the chance to rip his shirt off in celebration". Lol..

Anyways, Enjoy

I like how he's the only player in the top 10 that doesn't try to cheat by hiding the ball during his service.

That might be because he didnt do it even when it was allowed ;)
Anyways, he was my first idol about serving.. His serves were first I tryed to learn :)

Precisely!! I was thinking about the same thing when he was playing Xu Xin a few days ago. I thought I was the only one who exposes my serve. When I serve, my main priority is not to let my opponents attack my serve. Because when it comes to the people I play with, they are so good, most have no troubles receiving serves, and keeping the ball low over the net. So I might as well show the serve.

Think I'm going out with a bucket to see if can improve my serves,... Been a long time since I did experiment with my serve.
