    For quality and quality control, Butterfly first, Nittaku second. DHS and Stiga make great equipment, but in my experience their quality control has been not so great.

    In their home country, in a pandemic, incredible comeback in the quarters, beating the unbeatable team in the finals. One of the great wins in Olympic history.

    Lazer's right, about 5 or 6 for most kids, as soon as they can have fun. For best results in any sport, as early as possible. A.J. Liebling on boxing:

  15. Mizutani vs Sora Matsushima

    14 years old. Maybe not quite Harimoto level at the same age, but not too far off.

    Depends on the player. If he gets more control from extra spin than he loses from extra spin sensitivity then it's a net benefit. The balance comes down to style as much as level. Delicate over the...

    The Chinese Trials angle is better, especially for right-handed players. Closer is better for fine detail. Lower is better for shot trajectory. Off to the side is better for seeing at least part of...

    Fewer than 20,000 athletes and coaches in the summer games. Even if all Japanese and foreign support staff are included, it's still an insignificant number given the current scale of vaccination...

    No argument there. But the point is the loop usually has a steeper angle of incidence because of the extra topspin. So -- unless the Magnus effect of the post-bounce topspin always dominates the...

    Interesting contention. You may be right (I haven't done the math) but I'm skeptical. For argument's sake I'll assume you're saying that more topspin always causes the ball to leave the table at a...

    Yes and no. A topspin ball's flight path bends down and so impact on the table is more vertical. More downward force on impact means more upward force on rebound. Higher bounce. It's true that the...

    Long before November, everyone in Houston who wants a vaccine will have had one (except children under 12). Good venue choice by the ITTF.

    Old Waldner was pretty good. His blocking, countering, big forehand, tactical flexibility would translate to today's game. His backhand not so much, but he'd have a good backhand the same way Michael...

    This hurts. Now they can get a few more crumbs from the table of big time spectator sports, at the negligible cost of alienating their actual fan base. They weren't making money from us, so I guess...

    Another thing is ball trajectory off the rubber. Try hitting the ball up first, so it describes a shallow arc before the first bounce on your side of the table. You might find this makes it easier to...
