      To be fair, the bit about Harimoto is kind of true. He's not been doing too well in 2019. Same for Ito.
      But they are both young, no reason to think they won't improve.

      Maybe you are joking, but you shouldn't think of Harimoto as any normal 16-year-old.
      Think of him as WR# 5 player in the world.

      Harimoto raises his elbow too much on shots where he needs more upward brush.
      He's still not using his legs to push forward and upward to power the brushing element of the swing. I feel like his leg...

      I mostly use tabletennis11 for blades and tensor rubbers. If I'm buying Chinese rubbers, I use princett.com - much better price and more sponge hardness selection. 5-day shipping from Hong Kong to US...

      This is a pretty sound argument. The percentage of successful service returns has increased significantly since switching to the 40+ balls. This change alone will noticeably increase the average...

      I totally agree with your experience.
      5-ply feels fundamentally different from 7-ply allwood. 5-ply's are generally more flexible and better for looping. 7-ply's are more direct and better for...

      This is such a fascinating topic for me, I might want to start a separate thread.
      I'm just not sure if there's already such a thread existing out there.

      That's a good question. I wonder how many CNT players use 42 degrees H3.
      They always boost the rubber. It probably requires no more booster than the 41 or 40 degrees H3.

      Very little suspense for the team championship. Team PLA vs. Beijing for MT final.
      Overall, it was a good match. LJK and WCQ each got 2 points for their respective team. Zhou Kai ended up being the...

      No amount of good equipment can substitute for good technique.

      For us amateur players, it's not about attacking every long backspin ball (oftentimes our footwork isn't good enough for us to always be in a good attacking position). It's more about preventing our...

      Do you have any experience with tacky rubbers? If so, then choose bluegrip r1 on FH. If not, choose M1 on FH.
      For BH, I recommend M2 on an inner carbon blade.

      Bluegrip V1 and R1 are pretty similar. V1 is a little faster, it's better for aggressive close-to-table attacking style. R1 is more spinny, it's better for mid and long range looping style. If you...

      Playing against chopper requires a very specific set tactics and mindset.
      I suspect LJK and WCQ will return to the international scene with the ability to destroy choppers after this tournament....

      As a fan of WCQ, I'm a little disappointed, but not surprised at the result.
      Oh well, at least Lin Yun-ju's win at T2 is still keeping me pretty happy.

      I like DHS D40+ and I've had good experience with Xiom seamless balls. Yinhe seamless is not bad neither, it just feels slightly less bouncy than Xiom seamless.

      It's pretty frickin' amazing how well Timo plays with his right hand!
      I'm right handed and I wouldn't know how to hit a ball with my left hand, don't even mention service receives.

      I could be wrong here, but I thought majority of the ABS balls are made by DHS anyway.
      I thought all seamless balls are made by Xushaofa.
      Again, this is just what I heard, not totally sure.

      You are right.
      I'm afraid the new plastic balls like DHS D40+ have less spin than the old 40+.
      They are also harder and bounce higher. You could use this to your advantage and do more BH punches...

      I think Carl has given you many good points to work on. I totally agree with what he said.
      I just want to add another point, which Carl has touched upon too.

      After watching your video, I feel like the problem isn't reading serves. I think you are judging the spins correctly.
      I feel like spacing is more of an issue for you. When opponent...
