      Also important to know your patterns, as they probably affect what patterns your opponent uses.

      I watched some videos of Soma's- she chops everything, with inverted on backhand and pips of some type on the forehand. I'll think about the nature of backhand chops being in front, but I still think...

      I am curious why all the so-called modern defenders typically use inverted on their forehand and counter/loop on that side, and use long pips/short pips and chop on the backhand. Since forehand...

      I get that different tables and conduction may affect pay, but why would a "faster" table favor Xu Xin or anyone else over Ma Long? What is the tactical advantage?

      In the 11 points Timo scored in game 7, I think he gave the raised finger apology for 6 of them for a net or an edge. Pretty impressive. 3 out of 5 points to start game 7 on a 10 point run from the...

      I wonder what the Swedish masters of spin - Walder, Appelgren, Persson - think of the next Swede to make it to the world title finals playing with pips on one side. The times they are a changin'.

      Interestingly, the other few big individual sports I can think of - tennis and golf - don't HAVE world championships. Their big $$$ tournaments are part of a tour, much like TT.

      He came in and looked like he couldn't move to hit his forehand, so ripped two backhand winners instead. Maybe he could learn from this.

      I figured Falck was trying a better serve return with his forehand, but the backhand with the pips was a real surprise.
