    None of us actually have any impact on what ITTF does because they have set it up to make sure it stays that way, and USATT is much the same.

    Still, it is a TT forum so we might as well discuss...

    This thread is actually becoming productive now. Just out of curiosity, and this is an honest question: What did Eberhard Schoeler do to hurt the sport?

    Or the two color rule and the Larry Hodges conspiracy 😅. That is a recurring theme.

    On second thought Carl, lets just enjoy the thug life of being TT forum moderators. After all, we get our money...

    Here's how it worked. The ball comes out towards the table under the server's toss arm. The ball comes out almost parallel to the table surface. The receiver on the other side is standing, probably...

    Not better or worse, different in ways. Guys like Gatien, Saive and Primoracs were just as strong physically as any modern players. Add Korbel to that, also Wang Liqin, even though they're not on...

    Definition of a good serve in TT: Any serve that produces a weak return. In contrast to tennis, we don't serve aces. It is all about deception. That is the thing that has to be front and center....

    Yes, here maybe you would take a PCR in 7 to 10 days. In any case, you are way past the time when IVM could have helped. Even advocates of IVM say it is for the earliest stages of Covid-19.

    Yogi, I want to echo Dr. Evil. It's good you are talking about this. Also documenting your path to recovery might help some people too. Sometimes I doubt whether Dr Evil is actually evil.

    Good sign that you're walking and thinking about playing! Hopefully you can taste your food. Also, you will have lost some muscle fitness from so much lying down, but it will come back.
