    It was fun to see you use your body more through the clip. I agree with NDH. At this stage it sounds like your coach is mostly trying to get you to stop doing bad things. With only five months of...

    I'm not sure if anyone here can comment on your style. Your fh pips smash swings look too long and loose to work reliably, but they clearly do work great. It sounds like health and fitness are your...

    If your coach thinks the change will be good for you, and you feel confident also, it would be crazy not to change.

    So you're saying your backhand concept only works in practice and not in theory? Not much use then, is it? LOL

    I agree with NDH. Definitely you are rocking back slightly because your right toes come off the ground as you swing. I do this too - it isn't helpful.

    Don't try to fix it with your feet, just...

    Very nice, safe forehand. You have good feeling because the sound of your contact is almost the same every time, even when your partner blocks harder or slower. My one suggestion is that you could...

    Doesn't this kind of feel like TJing? I mean, you say it's difficult to change, is this the best use of your limited training time?

    Other than looking beautiful in freeze-frames, how many more...

    The positive is that your Dad is 88 and still above the ground. My Mom is 90, same kind of deal like you and LDM7. I hope we all do so well.

    Seven ply wood blades like a clipper or any clipper clone are good for hitter style. But the sweetest blade for hitting if you don't mind to spend a lot of money is the Darker Speed 90.

    Defense? Didn't hear you mention that at all. How are your blocks? Can you lob and fish? What is your plan when your opponent gets the upper hand in a point and you are forced back from the...

    One helpful coaching I got about high balls is not to aim deep on the table. That makes the ball go out more, and it makes a worse ball. Smash down as close to the net as you safely can and the...
