      Watching Calderano is very hard for me: on one hand he is an amazing player and watching his rallies is a delight but on the other hand his rituals make him look like a guy with very serious OCD and...

      Thanks for the explanation by the way, it does explain the second faulted service in the third game as well as I can see the ball dropping below the table this time around

      Oh, indeed that can be seen in the video but damn that’s harsh, the ball drops by like 2mm and they let aruna’s « I’m putting my all body in front of the ball »’s services pass -_-

      I don’t think...

      Hey, can anybody explain what happens at 6-3 (2nd game) in the Aruna - Jorgic match?

      Jorgic serves, and apparently the left...

      That part I believe has been scientifically proven (although I have no link to any study on the top of my head).


      Ahah, careful with those sort of dares, I might very well comply :D

      Going back to the original topic, I have a bunch of stuff but I think they're more related to OCD than superstitions :D Stuff such as tidying the tongues of my shoes, adjusting my shirt, making sure...

      Dunno if this is the right place to ask but I saw that Jorgic got a yellow card for throwing his bat on the table. What are the consequences of a yellow card?

      Yup, I had the exact same point in mind when reading this comment.

      Same goes for any piece of clothing by the way. One thing where Timo Boll is actually very clean with as you can see him showing...

      Yup, I'm guessing there's two parts to that rule:
      - doing it one purpose in a reliable fashion would require some fairly extensive training
      - it's not meant for doing it on purpose even if it...

      That's the exact reason why I stopped playing at about 16... no time for sports with uni and all, and and I only picked TT back at 34 when I finally had enough time for a hobby.

      Well I'm quite probably wrong on those. I usually am after all :-) But I'm pretty sure there's more pressing cancer-giving stuff to tackle before taking care of speed glue :-)

      Was the speedglue that unhealthy in the first place? Can't remember any kid from my era falling sick. I think that would have kind of made the headlines.

      Not to sound like a jerk but I really don't know about that.

      As a Frenchman with an « I » in his name myself, working for a British company and thus speaking and hearing English most of the time, I can tell you it still feels very unnatural to hear my name...

      That as well yes. But I think in any case it's moot, see my edit (and I should really have answered my own comment instead of editing it)

      In my case, the other player being invalid, could the umpire decide to relax the requirement that the...

      I was suspicious of such a central point being up for interpretation and as it turns out, it's not:

      While I do agree with you, it doesn't entirely solve the issue because roughly half the time they will have the ball on their side already :-) (although you could argue that in those cases you have...

      I'm extra annoying with people that don't even check if the receiver is ready and consider that they do it on purpose. Which is why if I notice that I will actively look outside for a couple second...
