    Gozo, you have a coach and a great plan and are improving fast. So I say this more for anyone else lurking on the thread than to you.

    Pure sidespin and no-spin are the same thing when you hit...

    One technique comment: the backhand hit you ended a point with around 8:55 in March four was lovely. You should use that hit to return all the long fast sidespin serves to your bh. These penholders...

    The OP says he has 40 degrees H3.

    The one piece of data we have about Ralph other than his setup is that he posted on a forum to ask if people thought his equipment was okay. That suggests...

    Sounds like a setup for a high-level player. T11 is quite fast and the 40 deg H3 requires good technique.

    Otherwise it's a pretty standard setup - composite blade, hard dhs fh rubber and soft...

    Hi Gozo,

    I can't add much to NDH's marvelous post, but I did want to say about 3rd ball attack. You don't have to end the point with some crazy strong attack. All you have to do is open with...
