    One of the things that Ma Long does to force his rotation is to punch towards where he wants to hit the ball with his left hand so he gets the rotation he needs to support a long atm backswing. ...

    I am fairly sure it is originally used in tennis. Can't remember where I last saw it online but a lady used to use it at my old TT club.

    There is not alternative but to consciously and deliberately experiment and learn. Which is what BRS was trying to tell you when he said it is the completely wrong attitude to complain about missing...

    Your left leg does twist a little so it is a matter of degree. The box lifting analogy is correct because it makes you rotate the both arms and hence the upper body, and not just the upper arm, the...

    That makes perfect sense. I trained with damaged knees for most of my game and it isn't worth it - I learned what I was missing, but I also learned that if something is painful, you won't do it...

    Yeah, as we get older, those pesky disks ruin all kinds of things. It is one of the reasons why I am reluctant to comment on video sometimes. So always caveat these pieces of advice as limited...

    When playing matches, your stance is almost always a backhand stance, in that you are set up to play a backhand. When you need to play a forehand, your legs core doesn't do any of the necessary...

    So what you are doing looks and feels like a footwork exercise but is it really?

    To be honest, learning technique as an adult is a complicated thing, especially because there is no 100%...

    Hi, Loertig. As funny as it sounds, the problem with your forehand swing is first and foremost your left foot and to a lesser degree your right foot which should be a bit more side on (it should...

    I think the use of slower blades to coach beginners is a bit overrated with one exception- adult learners who do not have good feeling. I know many juniors who just used fast blades with Chinese...

    The one thing I will add here is that Boll's switch to the Primorac Carbon was also related to his switching to Dignics 09c (slightly tacky rubber) on both sides. Sometimes these decisions have to...

    Lim Junghoon too good off the bounce - Quadri can't play at that speed close to the table so he had to try something else but doesn't quite have the skillset.

    Good comeback, but not sure it is amazing when the attacker doesn't make you move to the ball or reach for the ball and never pushes it short. Maybe she truly attacked Han Ying's middle a few times.

    Well he needs to "revenge" Lim Junghoon first. If he does that, I can see him being a clear favorite over both Gacina and Karlsson, but Gacina looks extremely solid in this tournament and Karlsson...

    Just to be clear, you have factored Diaz's continental advantages and potential for improvement into all this? Don't want a revisionist history in a year's time (assuming no injury/pregancy etc.)
