      It doesn't matter the spin being demonstrated or cleverness of the editing, the serves are illegal, thus opponent wins the point every time. That's the point of my comment.

      I only got halfway through the video. It's an invincible serve for sure as the receiver wins the point every time.

      I have been using 1-ply blades for about 12years. They do break, as in split in half. I have had two broken blades, but the funny thing is that I don't remember when they broke. You don't notice it...

    6. Shout, Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! when your opponent is too good or Brexit gets too much

      I first heard this song as a 12yo back in the sixties. It's still one of my favourites. It's also the only tune I know where the crowd is part of the music.

      Did any one notice that the table was vibrating when the players stamped their feet? One of the disadvantages of a suspended wooden floor. Terrific match though. I wish I had been there to see it up...

      Yogi has been a very good forumer over the years. I was very surprised at the language in his posts. I got the feeling that something outside of the forum was bothering him.

      Happens in most sports

      In most sports, drop below professional level and women become competitive. The reason we don't see it more often is that, by and large, women don't participate in sport in nearly as great a number...

      In my limited experience, old Pros still have a pro's mentality towards equipment. That is, they will play with whatever equipment that someone gives them or pays them to use.

      Illegal only at national and > level

      It's only illegal if the referee, (the person running the tournament as opposed to the umpire), says so.
      Below national level, not many referees would not allow that bat.
    18. Fairness applied

      A couple of reasons why players knock with the new ball.
      1. If the ball breaks during play, then that ball most likely was weak and the players were used to it. The new ball in this case will play...

      Veterans play more or less like they have always played.
      However, all players are always updating and will shift the playing emphasis of some aspect of their game all the way into old age.

      This is an easy one for any umpire.
      Look at the position from where the chopper hit the ball. If any touch to the table was detected, the point will be awarded to the chopper.

      Having for years observed USA posters' obsession with ratings both of themselves and other players, I really hope that it does not become popular in the UK.
