      I've had the exact same experience. I took up cycling to improve leg strength for TT. Problem is that these days I am cycling many more hours than TT. My road bikes have given me a new appreciation...

      Ma Long graduated from one of the very top universities in China, their version of an Ivy League school. I for one am skeptical that he actually did much real work there, even though I admire his...

      Good advice already given.

      Another thing to keep in mind is that nobody but you cares if you win or lose. So do your best to keep your ego out of it. (Not easy but try). If you play badly nobody...

      Butterfly Raystorm in max thickness. Spinniest SP in existence. But it's also the least disturbing for your opponent. So all in all a tradeoff. You can hit weird spinny slow BH loops with it.

      No. Ba'al has spoken.

      But they are required to be tough enough to ignore such pointless attempts at distraction, and serve the damned ball ( no more than three bounces beforehand).

      Rule 16. You are required to serve legally which is sometimes whatever an umpire decides is legal (which in turn may require invocation of Rule 6).

      At the moment my personal favorite is Rule 77. You are not allowed to signal to a doubles partner what serve you will use unless you actually know how to execute more than one serve.
