    I think in this respect, you need to explain to him that you'd like to have some more "safe" options when it comes to service return - Just whilst you are learning the more aggressive options that...

    Your coach is absolutely right. But there are some things to consider here.

    Side spin can be easily countered by topspin. BUT, it needs to be a fast topspin stroke. If you try and play “safe” and...

    Anyway, some actual advice, rather than just blowing smoke up your 🍑 😂

    Firstly, it’s not bad at all. These drills will always make you feel worse than you actually are, and they aren’t reminiscent...

    I know this is a thread for feedback and advice, but can we all just take a minute to appreciate how much improvement @Gozo has made in a relatively short space of time.

    Not only the fact he’s...

    This may come across as a little blunt, and it's not specifically directed at you, but questions like yours in general.

    These types of question are virtually impossible to answer without any sort...

    It's all about balance (and strength).

    Compare your position to ZJ, and he is "sat down" much more than you, very balanced and in complete control.

    If someone blocked the ball down his backhand...

    Hi Maurice, I'll try and be as constructive as possible.

    I think a lot of this depends on what your end goal is.

    Against a robot, where footwork isn't important, I can see why you may feel this...

    Hey Maurice,

    Before I comment, can I just ask if you are looking for general opinions on all of this (be that in favour, or against?)

    Or are you only really looking for opinions/advice that are...

    Hey Michael,

    Is there any video of you playing at all?

    Even if it's just messing about, it would be good to get an idea of your level, and the advice would be MUCH more appropriate after that....

    100% this.

    It’s hard to comment without seeing you play, but what are you trying to achieve here?

    The power comes from the legs and body rotation, not the arm, so I don’t think you should...

    I wouldn't disagree with your comment here, but I don't think it applies to Gozo in this specific instance.

    Above all else (within reason), being consistent as you learn Table Tennis is the most...

    I know what you are saying, and in this instance, I’m more inclined to agree (given the set up the coach has recommended).

    However, the alternative is to take advice from a bunch of random people...

    Given this statement, you have 2 options.

    1. Blindly go with what the coach says and trust that they know what they are doing.

    I would do this if the coach has proven success of training others...

    I'm a big advocate of playing deep returns and long pushes to open the game up.

    I'm a big guy, and I'll never win the nimble/quick over the table attacking game.

    I also find players are so used...

    There are certainly levels to this, and as I'm not your coach, I would be hesitant to advise one way or the other.

    Personally, I think you need to be playing a shot with fast bat speed (whether...

    Honestly, once you get past £50, you get severely diminishing returns.

    Is a £150 blade 3 times as good as a £50 blade? Absolutely not (generally speaking).

    Is a £300 blade 6 times better than...

    What brings you enjoyment from the sport?

    Interesting take!

    Truthfully, I’ve perhaps been fortunate to “predominantly” be around coached people most of my life (certainly from a junior POV).

    These people who are learning the correct...

    I think D09C is Timo’s baby. Pretty sure I read/watched that he was instrumental in pushing for that type of rubber from Butterfly, having seen the Chinese dominate with their H3!

    I think we’ll...
