      I think OP's telling us he's not a FH looper, but a blocker and counterhitter instead. I'm with Der E. on this: you (A) either double down in accepting this as a reality, or (B) dig your teeth in...

      There was this vid showing Marcus Freitas in training. He often changed, and we saw him glue on new rubbers.

      Well, logistics from HK could take considerable time even before the political situation blew up. Patience will pribably sort things out. Or it might not.

      Spin it. Get low, use your hips to power a fast BH swing, lifting the ball by brushing it (matching and overriding the existing backspin).

      Get your feet in place first. Choose a position; you...

      Yeah, try, try, try. Except that first impressions are deceptive. Too fast and too spinny usually feels awesome, at first.

      Dima seems to have an edge over sparring spartners. I had expected more parity.

      I must admit I remember precious little of that time. It was a bad time for my TT - in fact so bad it stopped me playing for about 30 years.
