    If he serves with LP, there is barely any spin on the ball worth respecting or usually light topspin. You probably didn't realize this and kept trying to do things to the ball based on his service...

    I answered the way I did because some people do not realize that for some older players, you are forcing them to adjust to serve rules that did not exist when they played most of their matches. That...

    You must be happy - so far this is more like an annihilation than a match.

    It is a mixed bag. I won't pretend to be a guy who hasn't lost a lot of matches using what I now consider the wrong mindset to approach illegal serving. I will remind people that table tennis is...

    Drinkhall played really well. That said, Quadri hasn't looked good for a while now. Hoping he returns to form at some point on the tour.

    Good luck with the England vs India matchups tomorrow!

    It's clear it was related to something about Pitchford on that day.

    There was a blocker I played a lot at tournaments (and don't get me wrong, he was pretty good at blocking because he hit with a lot of high level players and used really fast rackets). Even when I...

    You did the right thing, if you can't produce the spin, you don't know how to vary it and place it, so it is step by step! Your play in that video was encouraging and showed a path to serious TT,...

    In my humble opinion, this is a good match by you and a good opponent for you to play against. You can make your forehand better by improving the technique, but the overall approach was sound and I...

    The danger with being too aggressive over the table is being stuck over the table (or even out of position) when the ball comes back. So it becomes a balance between whether the approach is winning...

    You got good advice from everyone. The tight short game is really a high level thing. No one pushes short at the levels you play at. Or serves short and tight. Doing so is really hard. Even top...

    The one thing I will accept without any pushback in what you wrote is that best of 3 is a bummer.
