    Yes. Pushing straight, or swiping at the ball. I think some call it “bumping”.

    They stole that title by cheating rather than winning it in fair play. I have not forgotten that.

    That last remark highlights a positive stroke. Pushblockers can do insane things to a ball, especially when fed with backspin.

    I understand (to some extent) the limits posed by arthritis....

  5. MA LONG - THE GOATEST of all GOATS

    Waldner (and company) broke the CNT dominance and more or less left it in the dust for a decade or so. In doing that, they pushed envelopes and accelerated developments already budding end 70s to...

    I actually thought Ma Long’s performance against Dima was of the highest caliber. Impressive, especially in the decider. Still not counting him out.

    I find the lack if public content appalling; there’s next to nothing out there. I wonder how this “milk it!” approach rhymes with the olympic spirit.

    FZD gave his all, but ML may not have shown his ultimate form yet.

    I think the pressure’s higher for FZD; he has everything to win, with ML having nothing to lose. Also, I expect if there’s any...

    Just looking at the scores reveals a level match. Yet FZD was the one closing it; good for him. LYY will no doubt learn and grow even stronger from this hair-thin defeat.

    Hard one for me, as both Evangelizer of the Church of Ito and Savourer of the Spice of Life that Is Xu Xin.

    Let it be gold for XX in XD and a proud singles medal for the Goddess herself.

  18. Vladimir Samsonov Retires

    Very sad to see Samsonovs career go out with a long whisper in Covid-tine. I’ve wished him a bang.

    He’s been an inspiration - for so long. That versatile style! That fluidity, that touch!

    Ouch. Why? Vladi being able to participate was my one redeeming factor towards accepting the silliness of not canceling this global superspreader event.

  20. Best Secure File Transfer Methods and Solutions

    My candidate: “twin ply sponge”, an abhorrence that I fell for +/- 40 years ago. It still haunts my nightmares.

    Looks like it’s been erased from recorded history. Rightfully so.

    Way back when I played with Mark V in 2.5mm. There were way much more choppers back then, and I've always had barrels of fun playing them, shaping the curve of the ball to suit. The short game was...
