    I don't like Kanak Jha's technique at all, it looks very stiff and robotic, especially the FH topspin. I'm sorry I don't think it's "text-book technique" by any means. The proof is he couldn't...

    I feel heartbroken for Kristian. He's in great form and this might be his chance of a life time to win a major single title.

    She stays close to the table, play very compact strokes (both fh and bh), take the ball very early most of the times (ball on the rise), focus on speed and placement rather than power, always ready...

    Very well said!! I saw so many people doing the same thing. They seem to do everything needed, the arm swing is there, lower body motion and weight transfer are there, but they are so disconnected....

    To me there’s not much difference between Harimoto’s BH and Ma Long’s BH, especially the basic BH against backspin ball. Of course there are differences because they have different bodies, strength,...

    Hello from Vietnam,
    Great videos!! I saw your videos earlier and I was interested but there was no subtitle at the time. It’s great to have English subtitles now. Thanks a ton. Please keep on doing...

    Definitely not a flat, not exactly a drive. Drive is often referred as a stroke that is used against topspin or float ball and the racket will swing forward with a somewhat closed angle. This BH...

    Yes i rate Wang Hao very high, one of my fav players, but since it’s only in theory, i want to keep it as realistic as possible. Well he could have trouble with FZD and ML (who has improved a lot...

    It’s not a theory. Wang Hao was exactly what you describe. I believe if prime Wang Hao was playing now, he’d still be at least in the top 10 (if not 5).

    IMO the world team that has a chance to beat CNT (first team) would be Ovtcharov, Lin Yun Ju and Liam Pitchford.

    The chance to become a pro that is paid to play in leagues is very slim given your age, finance status and current level. As someone said above, if you are a millionaire who can spend loads of money...

    If ITTF’s intention was slowing the game down, the result is not exactly what they might expect:
    - the game isn’t slower, anyone thinks it’s slower than 1980s or 1990s table tennis? I just don’t see...

    This serve screams “around the net” for me too. I actually think it’s the best way to return this serve. Weird serve needs weird return :DThe other potential option is using your backhand to push...

    Too soon. This is the first big tournament that Truls goes far, with more or less luck on his side (regarding draw and the match against LJH). Once he is seen as a real threat, other players will...

    No one talks about Liam Pitchford vs Liang Jingkun? Best match of the tournament so far. Liam was on fire. Is Liam the most consistent threat for the Chinese players now? He created problems for them...

    What a comeback! Truls had nothing to lose after 0-3 down and he started doing tricks and float balls to mess up LJH’s rhythm.

    Pity for LJH, he is playing so well this tournament, just lacks...

    It’s not easy to change habits that you have had for more than 10 years. Possible? Yes. But very hard.

    Many people questioned Harimoto’s technique and style 3-4 years ago or even earlier. His...

    Nope. It’d give the lefty + righty combo too much advantage.
