  1. Daily Table Tennis Chit Chat

    First tournament! Veterans only.

    Played solidly, constant for six matches. One narrow loss, against a Russisn giant with the softest hands I’ve ever seen and disheartening retrieval to boot. I...

    Props for both! It might not be the hippest of remarks, but I’d say Boll’s BH (outstanding pressure and stability) and Waldner’s (solid, unpredictable) deserve a mention as well.

    I don't think I'd mind that serve all that much. Yes, it's fast, but it's also quite predictable with sufficient good options to handle it advantageously; I actually train with people doing that kind...

  5. Feedback on topspin form

    Just my .02€.

    An odd 40 yrs or so ago I was thoroughly trained for distinctive bh/fh stances. Bh parallel, fh at roughly a 30° angle (with variations as needed by placement).

    That came with a...

    I concur with your analysis, mostly. Cole adapted to your game. You didn't accomodate equally - leading to a slew of poor BH's, and top-to-top rallies in which you didn't dominate anymore.

    I'm not so sure about "most effective", but it's certainly a treat to see XX in action.

    Technique derives from physique, deep down. You need Wang Liqin's build to spin like he does; and I think...

    NL and Ba’al are right of course. As a rallier, though, I actually think it’s become more fun to play. Or a bit less frustrating anyway.

    There’s no such thing as no chance in TT. A touch of mid-game diarrhea would be more than enough to, erm, turn the tides.

    Gross? Hmm. Merely human (even if it’s just shenanigans). In the former case, just human; in the latter case, human and despicable.

    They stole that title by cheating rather than winning it in fair play. I have not forgotten that.

    That last remark highlights a positive stroke. Pushblockers can do insane things to a ball, especially when fed with backspin.

    I understand (to some extent) the limits posed by arthritis....

    Waldner (and company) broke the CNT dominance and more or less left it in the dust for a decade or so. In doing that, they pushed envelopes and accelerated developments already budding end 70s to...

    I actually thought Ma Long’s performance against Dima was of the highest caliber. Impressive, especially in the decider. Still not counting him out.

    I find the lack if public content appalling; there’s next to nothing out there. I wonder how this “milk it!” approach rhymes with the olympic spirit.
