    Yes i rate Wang Hao very high, one of my fav players, but since it’s only in theory, i want to keep it as realistic as possible. Well he could have trouble with FZD and ML (who has improved a lot...

    It’s not a theory. Wang Hao was exactly what you describe. I believe if prime Wang Hao was playing now, he’d still be at least in the top 10 (if not 5).

    IMO the world team that has a chance to beat CNT (first team) would be Ovtcharov, Lin Yun Ju and Liam Pitchford.

    The chance to become a pro that is paid to play in leagues is very slim given your age, finance status and current level. As someone said above, if you are a millionaire who can spend loads of money...

    If ITTF’s intention was slowing the game down, the result is not exactly what they might expect:
    - the game isn’t slower, anyone thinks it’s slower than 1980s or 1990s table tennis? I just don’t see...

    This serve screams “around the net” for me too. I actually think it’s the best way to return this serve. Weird serve needs weird return :DThe other potential option is using your backhand to push...

    Lin Yun Ju is a great young player that pulled a few upsets against stronger and more experienced players like Fan Zhendong and Ma Long, etc. but it doesn’t mean he’s on the same level as them or...

    Too soon. This is the first big tournament that Truls goes far, with more or less luck on his side (regarding draw and the match against LJH). Once he is seen as a real threat, other players will...

    No one talks about Liam Pitchford vs Liang Jingkun? Best match of the tournament so far. Liam was on fire. Is Liam the most consistent threat for the Chinese players now? He created problems for them...

    Yeah probably. I have the same feeling that Truls already gave up and he was surprised when Lim couldn’t finish the game. Incredible comeback but it feels strange at the same time because it’s...

    What a comeback! Truls had nothing to lose after 0-3 down and he started doing tricks and float balls to mess up LJH’s rhythm.

    Pity for LJH, he is playing so well this tournament, just lacks...

    It’s not easy to change habits that you have had for more than 10 years. Possible? Yes. But very hard.

    Many people questioned Harimoto’s technique and style 3-4 years ago or even earlier. His...

    RPB is harder to master than shakehand BH. Not many can do that. Even the CNT players like Xu Xin, Zhao Zihao, Xue Fei, Xu Haidong… their BH is decent as best, they lack either power or consistency....

    Nope. It’d give the lefty + righty combo too much advantage.

    I suggest a safe approach to these serves. If I want to push or chop it, I will wait a little more, try to add my own backspin and aim deep to their body or backhand. If I loop it, I would also wait...
