      The thing I have seen most is people not getting good weight transfer or body rotation (kind of leaning backward when they hit the ball). Also no tactical context for the shots they hit (robot...

      You are all reminded that the correct number of blades to own is n+1 where n is the number you own now. This thread contravenes the spirit of that Rule.

      You are not allowed to even acknowledge the existence of TTX. Study The Rules and obey them. Penance is required.

      Apply pressure by not beating yourself. Tape some practice matches. See if there are recurring situations where you systematically give away points. (Amazing how many people have these issues and...

      Your coach is correct. The key is placement and consistency. You're not going to win many points by adding so much spin your opponent pushes into the net. Instead you will make more errors. ...

      I would have been with you on this, right up until I attended the 2017 WTTC in Germany (shoutout to Suga D!) and encountered his legions of fanatical followers in person. Because it was clear that...

      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...

      I have a few stories to tell about this. I teach at a university in the US (I have former doctoral students who are now faculty at Chinese and Taiwanese universities). In addition, quite a few...

      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...
