    Fantastic, looking forward to that review.

    I see Liam has shaved his head so he can move faster. Fortunately nature is doing the same for me and as a consequence I can now move as fast as a...

    Rooting for Liam.

    Dan, you gotta find out if Liam is still talking with a German accent, or has it now changed to a French accent!?
    Also find out how he developed that backhand so you can come...

    Well I could try wearing a dress, but I think I'd have to wax my legs first, and that would be just too painful.

    Sympathetic depiction of the Englishman (not).

    Needs Ma Long to walk in at the end and cane them all.
    (Actually my dog could cane them all)

    Thanks for your first post and welcome to TTD :)

    Forehand because it bounces/almost rolls across the table and is therefore unreturnable and an absolute winner against anyone even Ma Long. (Backhand bounces once and therefore could be returned)

    It would be interesting to know whether there is any correlation between ability to do well on the App and ability to play TT. Do pro level players out score amateurs, is there a regression line...

    Bastion Steger does indeed seem to have a problem. His mum has made him wear shorts that she made by cutting his long trousers at the knee. Hellfire even my shorts are not quite that long and I am 20...

    Sorry to ask at a slight tangent, but how important is it to develop the circular type of forehand and recover and forehand motion shown in the video. I tend to recover by basically reversing the...

    OK. Well whether you call it disguise or not, there is a slapping with the wrist going on during the shot which is totally different to the brushing of topspin.

    I have a team mate who is...

    I too struggle with forehand block against very heavy topspin attacks. I think it is a lot easier to turn the bat angle downwards on the backhand side.
    Last night I was at a practice session and the...

    Is that what started all this chop block stuff ?

    That's a great subject for a thread in its own right Tinykin - perhaps you can start it up and we can doubtless get some great videos of the originators/popularisers of these shots.

    I did hear a rumour that the record had been beaten by a couple of blokes having a pushing rally (yawn) in the Bristol League :)

    My suggestions would be more about how you practice your serves.
    Try to always serve as you would in a match which means only holding one ball in your hand at a time, and at least say half the time...
