      In the very long run, maybe. But currently he stands to lose any chance of an oympic singles spot in Tokyo. And this passive style is not yielding results.

      Sure,,it would be great to add another...

      Hmm I've just watched that match, and despite it being quite spectacular, i'm even more worried for FZD.

      FZD was still incredibly passive during the early parts of each rally. Overwhelmingly, it...

      My feeling from watching him play is that his play has become more conservative (too conservative for my taste).

      The changes feel very "by the numbers" to me. He is backhand flicking returns a lot...

      I think it's not so much a problem of him being exposed to the grand stage early. So much as expectations either the JNT place on him or he/his father places on himself.

      The problem is the looming...

      I think the CNT is looking to groom WCQ as their long term prospect, so with the weight of the CNT machine behind him, I'd argue WCQ is the one with the clearer path.

      I don't think of it really as an apology, and more of an acknowldgement.

      It's not so much "sorry I won a lucky point". So much as an acknowledgement that the point wasn't won purely on player...

      To be fair, he's been a fixture at the top so long now, it's easy to forget he's only 22, making him younger than even LGY. Whatever is wrong is unlikely to be physical (unless he's actually...

      I think it's depressing that he isn't talking about becoming a more complete player.

      His answers amount to 'well I didn't get a chance to play to my strengths'. The fact is things aren't always...

      Holy crap, what was that FZD?

      That was abysmal, he needs to seriously get out of his slump. LGY had been his whipping boy for a while now, it was the only match in T2 that he actually looked sharp...

      Kinda dissapointed FZD doesn't seem to have returned to form after that little bit of break. Both his wins have looked very messy this tournament.

      At this rate his 2020 Olympics single spot might...

      I think you overestimate just how much of a factor your lower body is.

      Try playing any shot with no weight transfer/waist rotation. It's noticeably less power, but still very playable.

      Try...

      Forehands inherently make use of bigger muscle groups.

      Your big muscles groups are all ones that help you pull your hand into your body, which is the action of a forehand stroke.

      Your backhand...

      I think you arn't getting on top of the ball enough, especially on the first few, you got a bit better after a few shots.

      In general, I think this is a symptom of a lack of confidence in the shot....

      Well, for those complaining about t2 bonus points.

      It seems T2 Haikou has been "postponed". ITTF's announcement is a bit unclear.

      In fact, the word sinister, used to just mean left handed, and it's usage has morphed over time.

      I think the higher proportion of left hand players is present in most racquet sports.

      Just a function of most players being right handed. So both left and right handed players are more used to...

      I think this exactly cuts to the issue of the difference between "different" and "flawed".

      There is a tradeoff between the "Chinese Forehand" and the "European forehand" though most top players...

      Just to be clear, I don't think his FH technique is flawed just because it looks different. There are many types of forehands (over the table loops, loops from far back etc) and more than one valid...

      So in summary.

      Very few people bothered to define what standard they are comparing TH's forehand too.

      I think the use of the term "form" and throwing around terms like "textbook" obfuscates the point a bit. It's really about biomechanic efficiency.

      It so happens, that "form" and "textbook" have...

      I don't think he needs to be.

      I don't think the problem is that his forehand isn't as good as top chinese players. It's that he had a fairly bad forehand for a player of that level, period.
