Merry Christmas everyone.

Thanks GECA, Merry Christmas to you to! Thanks for all your tremendous youtube videos this year!

It seems the voting is already led by Koki and Robinot. It sure will be interesting who wins!

Great work Dan, love the video

I voted for 2 - Daniel Habeshon (Behind The Back Shot)Because:
1) Its doubles, not singles (so the momentum to do behind the back shot is more difficult)
2) Its the WTTC - BMT
3) Its against one of the strongest mens doubles players ever
and the favourite part, the looks on Ma Lin's face. Not too many people can do that to Ma Lin - in doubles!

2013 is defiantly the year of behind the back shot

I voted for Timo Boll.

The around the back shots seem a little too lucky to me to be number 1.

The votes are so close at the moment! I wonder if they will stay close till the end. I have picked Koki Niwa because the visualisation needed for that shot is tremendous!

I vote for Fan Zhendong because most of the other shots are based on luck.

I voted for Daniel Habesohn (Behind The Back Shot), just because the face of Ma Lin says it all! #ChineseAdmiration #MerryChristmas

Top 3 for me are Szilard, because he is pinned into his backhand corner and the distance away from table, the angle, the fact he is returning a smash - unbelievable.
2nd Robinot and 3rd Habeshon. I love how the other guy shouts YO!! And then sees the ball coming back from Robinot - priceless.

Robinot! Koki's shot is awesome as well, very creative. :)

All these shots are exceptional. I vote for Habesohn's not just for the quality of the shot, but for Ma Lin's facial expression with his jaw dropping down, which appears a few seconds after the shot when he's trying to understand what has happened. It's priceless:eek:

What an amazing year it has been once again! It's really difficult to choose the best one. Numbers 2,4,5,7,9 are my favourites :D
But I will go with the one that amazed me most when I saw it the first time. And that's Robinot's shot :P

Hopefully this video will go viral again, great promotion for table tennis! :)

Haha realised this is my 300th post! A new TTD milestone reached hah :D

Exactly the same reasons for Habesohn's shot and the following Ma Lin's face expression. Great stuff

Great job Dan. Fun video once again.

My vote went for the FZD around the net shot. It is not as flashy as some and many people won't see it as the best, but it is the shot with the highest degree of difficulty and that angle he gets is amazing.

Hello to all!


For me the best move is for Fan Zhendong, is a difficult play to achieve.

Well I went for Ma Long and the drop shot.

Tempted by Habeshon just for the look on Ma Lin's face. However in the end best shot ought to go to skill rather than luck or showboating. To me the skill full shots are Timo Boll, Ma Long and Fan Zhendong.

Not sure I understand the popularity of No 10. This looks to me like some thing the player has deliberately practiced in training to provide a showboat finish. It is hitting a shot and then turning backwards for a spin. Doesn't seem remotely natural and never something which would happen without prior practice nor something which conveys any technical playing advantage. Maybe I am wrong but that's how it seems to me.

Happy Christmas All.

Koki by a clear mile! Doing that with such pace while still running after that amazing counterloop rally is defenitely one of the most awesome shots I've ever seen :D Szilard is cool too but his shot isn't a winner, is not as cool to me ^^

Glad you like this years video guys! Thanks for helping with selecting these awesome shots to finalise a top 10 video.

Haha a milestone well done EditingSports! I agree each shot has it's brilliance and creativity but Robinot's really did stand out once it was done. Infact that shot went viral with over 1.5 million views!

Merry XMAS buddy!

i vote for FZD...a difficult shot...most of the other shots are as many have posted in this poll are lucky shots even the players may also feel they are lucky to have made those shots, but they're cool anyway, fun, and amazing!!!belated merry Christmas every one...and a prosperous new year to all!!!....i missed being on line during the christmas but i did not miss the deadline of submitting my vote, hehehe!!!:):):)

I saw this FZD shot live, it was much better then the video. It was really quiet in hall and this shot had so much power that it has been heard very loud. After the shot even Kenta was smiling. He has done it so easily like it was very simple shot.

Panagiotis Gionis!!!

I think kenta's flying across the table backhand was impressive, but overrated. I was more impressed by xx's crossover footwork in return his backhand shot. (The point was also a cheap point, since he only got it because he skimmed the edge.) Very tough call for me. It is a tossup between gionis and koki, with kanabe in close second. I'm not going to vote for fan, cause i'm not entirely convinced he isn't doping. Wth, gionis it is.

I agree, lucky shots shouldn't be in the '2013 best shots list', or at most one lucky
shot is enough.
I vote for Timo, his shot has everything: timing, technique, placement, ...
And he did that against one of the best (if not the best) topspin counter-loop
players.
FZD's shot is also my second choice.


Please don't vote for the 'lucky' shots...

I voted Timo Boll's backhand overtake.. amazing!!
