    You are making an assumption and leaving some things out.

    The first thing that you are assuming is that you have to brush the ball a lot. However, this isn't true. If you just want to...

    It looks like red can just push blue's serves to the extreme angle, wide to backhand. Instead, red commonly pushed half long...

  4. Poll: Simple rule suggestion to fix service visibility

    Most illegal services commonly go out of view behind a players shoulder or body.

    A rule stating "the front of the server's shirt must be visible to the receiver" should fix the most common illegal...

    The technique looks fine.
    It just looks to me that you aren't good enough at adjusting your technique to the ball.
    Look at the ball more carefully and judge how much you actually need to lift the...

    There's is a lot of advice to give. But I guess for starters: how much does he care about improving? If he cared, he would not have such basic problems like grip and stance.

    Aside from the basics,...

    Hey there, I think I see your problem. But first you should mention that the first opponent in your video, you didn't show missed serves, which is why Lula above me is confused.

    I am pretty sure I found a definite solution today after rethinking one particularly basic concept. All in all, I've probably been doing something wrong from the very start, given how often I hit...

  12. It depends on what your level is

    It depends on your level.

    If you are just starting, learning how to make lots of spin on your serve should be your number one priority.
    In general, you should get the hang of spinning the ball on...

    Should I just fast-forward myself when I play with people that...

    I did change my racket recently, but I wouldn't really blame that.
    It probably is judgement, although sometimes, when I'm sure I know, I hit the edge.

    Do you usually stand a bit further away from the table?

    Maybe high-level players stand further away from the table than I thought.

    I have tried flatter hits, but it's not as consistent, especially on blocks that are low. I can keep trying it out, but there's a limit to what you can do with a flatter hits.

    If you are trying to reach 2200, your forehand is passable at best, and your backhand is not up to par at all. Pretty much everything needs to be a little better: spin, speed, placement.

    It's definitely not more spin than a long push. The reason the ball bounces back sometimes is because the ball is moving really slowly, so the spin is able to make it go back. Normal shots go faster...
