      Yeah something's going on with your order that's out of the ordinary. I placed an order for 2 rubbers a few days ago. Got the email from them that my items have shipped yesterday.

      I wasn't playing during the speedglue era but health risks and all that messing with your rubbers for only 3-5 hours performance? Just not worth it IMO.

      You can play at an intermediate level just...

      I personally think the idea of watching the ball actually hit your rubber is a myth. Rather, you're kinda looking at the ball or the region the ball is in. I think it's partly watching the ball and...

      It's not my best serve but a useful one and I can pull it off.

      When I do this serve I just try to focus on making the 1st bounce middle of the table or close to the net and it's okay if this...

      +1000 I'm only 40 and my back hurts after just watching that. ha ha.

      Yeah it's a hard pass on this one. Maybe I just don't get it but it looks like the ball is just fished & lobbed back on with no real exciting or fast shots.

      A good question to ask. Generally whatever sets up for a ball you like factoring in what you opponent can do well and what not.

      If you're a topspin to topspin player (so many of these types at my...

      Agreed. By and large opponents that give me trouble typically are killing me on serve possibly setting up easy 3rd balls.

      So generally i think "just neutralize" on their serve. Whether I'm giving...

      Nicknames I think are by & large corney and something of the past in sports. It's dated.

      Most stars don't really go by nicknames. Rather an abbreviation of their initials or just calling them by...

      +1

      This largely influences one's direction. I play close to USATT 2000 and am about 50/50 with one of our club's traveling tournament players who is at that level. (realizing that styles vary. I...

      A good Q.

      I'm a penholder and he likes to serve long & fast to my BH with light backspin. I can loop it with RPB but my % of point wins on that is probably lower than a good TPB push/chop. I get...

      Well variety is the best solution. Keeping your opponent off balance in what you're doing.

      It kinda depends on what you are good at and what your opponent isn't.

      If your opponent does not have...

      I've recently discovered the power of the push. Particularly on service return. Don't get me wrong, I like to, and think it's important to attack serves when you can but overall I find I'm playing my...

      Just out of curiosity, have you guys ever been in a bit of a slump and what'd you do to break out of it?

      So I've spent a few posts in this thread saying you can't compare eras because the game has changed too much over the years. And I stand by that.

      Problem with winning % is that then it's based on outside factors. Then it boils down to the quality of pros at the time they're playing.

      I think we need to either agree on (fat chance of that happening right?) or accept that we're all using different metrics to call the greatest of all time.
