      I actually think FZD played this correctly. ML and XX aren't super quick close to the table the way FZD can be.
      I think FZD feels (correctly or incorrectly) that his BH is a match for TH's, and he...

      As with any forehand dominant player, exploit their far backhand corner. This is alot easier if you have a good backhand loop, as crosscourt backhand loop is the safest/best way to exploit this...

      You know, I expected him to have trouble against the topspin, since they probably wouldn't play that way if it wasn't tough to deal with. But I am impressed with just HOW out of control it was, he...

      That would be genuinely shocking, considering Germany is and was an perennial contender for a medal.

      The US has a couple of players that might conceivably cause upsets (one in each men/women), but...

      Well, I'm officially sold on FZD's return to form now.

      This whole tournament he has now found a better balance between passive touch play and taking control of the point over the table.

      This...

      By "out of nowhere" I mean in the sense of the international circuit. We havn't seen that much of them playing THAT many competitive matches against other top players, mostly because they havn't been...

      It's because you keep putting your hopes behind young unproven talent.

      While exceptional talent might be sufficient to upset a series of top players in quick succession, win a few tournaments,...

      Touching hands is pretty much par for the course with how the CNT members shake hands with each other. Shaking hands isn't really something done traditionally in china, it's done more as a...

      I find that it tends not to work that way. If you are used to not using your wrists, chances are you would not be comfortable just adding wrist into your strokes. It's not like adding another stroke...

      Haha, this is why I try not to actually say anything when apologising in a match.

      A wry smile and a hand up, and let them interpret from the context. So I don't end up doing something that...

      I think this is one of those cases where you just hit a bunch of forehands and see (or get someone else to see) how much wrist you use on the forehand.

      Then just stick with that. Go with what...

      Yes, though I would not recommend it.

      I will be switching to H3 Neo Mid forehand, and H3 Neo soft backhand shortly.

      The combination of H3 and a relatively slow blade for the modern game creates...

      Lots of control, and not fast enough are exactly the reasons for and against H3 Neo on backhand.

      H3 Neo is a comparative hard rubber with very little catapult, making it both relatively dead to a...

      I think it has alot to do with how you play your counterloop/topspin block when you don't have alot of time/space to play a big forehand.

      If you are used to generating alot of pace off the small...

      Just to be clear, I don't think his being able to short push well is a sign of weakness. Obviously another tool in your belt is useful. It's that short pushing is now his default open to points that...

      I agree, that he is a shoo in for the other Olympics spot, both because there are only 3 realistic candidates for 2 spots and XX is already required for doubles.

      But as for him being at his top...

      I think 2019 FZD is an entirely different beast from 2018 FZD.

      While FZD seems to be putting his game back together with a few new parts he's worked on, given the CNTs bias towards experience and...

      You know, ironically, I'd think he'd have a better chance if he weren't so obviously the best player in the world at doubles.

      Right now I'm not 100% sold on FZD's comeback, even if I am rooting...

      This is as good of a strategic game as I've seen FZD play recently. He's appropriately aggressive, and coming with a good first attack when the opportunity arises, and still using his short play as a...
