    Yeah. Some of what Michael is asking is just what a real coach would work on with you when they watch you play matches. Trying to learn by yourself is like the long slow method. A good coach will...

    Just info that may be worthwhile: 1600 rated player in European rating systems is probably a higher level than a USATT 2000 level player's level. 1600 may be more like 2200-2300 in USATT.

    So,...

    Yep. They reset faster. They watch what you do with the ball, what you are ready for, what you are not ready for. A pace that feels like it makes you rush is a slow pace for something whose level...

    And that is why you should use your own judgement. There is no formula. But you will know when it is time to change rubbers if you are paying attention.

    If he is 2000, he is not even bothering to use his strengths against you and is just reading what is open while you are playing.

    I really don't understand how these kinds of ideas come into your head.

    Just use the rubber till it is dead and then change. You should be able to feel when it is no longer that great.

    And since he is using H3N, that does not exactly apply to what MZ is using. But how frequently MZ boosts, and how much boost he uses each time on his H3N, that could effect how long the sponge will...

    BTW: I know people who will say something like: "I am better than _______ (put any name you want in), but when we play matches, I lose and it is very frustrating." And I have heard things like this...

    Yeah. This just sounds like something you need to work on and practice. You can work on it with your coach. But these are basics. It is fun to talk about being a looper. But if you have trouble...

    BTW: a note on what I said above: if you pull your shoulderblades back and work all those muscles in your upper back for short periods of time, it will make those muscles strong and more able to do...

    So, it is not whether muscles contract or not, it is that, if you are thinking about what muscles contract, the wrong muscles will contract.

    If you are relaxed and do the movement pattern, the...

    I am not sure what you are worried about. The color does not matter. The feeling while playing is what matters. Put new rubbers on and see how it plays. I also probably would not fuss with the slight...

    Yep. If you are thinking of muscles to tense instead of the movement pattern and the quality of the movement, it will cause problems.

    There is a lot more in this post than meets the eye. It is a post that would be worth reading a few times to understand it more fully.

    Info on USATT Rating stuff: if you beat one 1600-1700 level player whose style meshes well with what you are good at facing, it likely means your level is somewhere between 1200-1400. However, if...

    I have not read much of the thread. But I am going to answer the original question and perhaps my experience is different than other people's....or, maybe not.

    Oh, also, doing all the stroke and footwork drills lefty, makes it so it can be balanced, but also, interestingly, it helps you improve at doing it right handed.I think it is because, when you try to...

    You play well against your regular partner because you are used to what he does. That is why you have to do this against a lot of different players. You get good at what you face. But not what you...
