      Rumor had it that he gave all of 'm a run, and then pretty much held his own for quite a while.

      Back in the day there wasn't nearly as much footage. I've seen the pros train, early 80s, and some...

      I definitely recall fh- and bh flicks, swoops, corkscrew chops and loops, and chopblocks in the 38mm area. Both Waldner and Persson had all that their arsenal.

      It was less used, though. Lower...

      I have been in deep doo doo a couple of times by lefties using a halflong (2nd bounce at table edge) reverse pendulum serve, near the middle line, with varying and (for me) unreadable spin.

      I somewhat support the local FC. They provide the young with sporting facilities and incentives.

      Other than that, watching that sport is about as riveting as watching grass grow. They rarely even...

      My old, still highly revered coach keeps hammering in his mantra: VPS (“vastheid, plaatsing, snelheid/spin”) - i.e. consistency, placement, shot quality. In that order.

      I see a lot of things, but the overarching issue (in my eyes) is a general lack of stability. There are footworkproblems, technical issues, but the one thing that strikes me is a tendency to back...

      Brokenball, you keep pointing fingers elsewhere, even hinting at xenophobic slurs.

      Jacques Secrétin, 1949-2020

      I was saddened today to read about the demise of Jacques Secrétin, at 71 years of age.

      Secrétin was a great player in his own right, winner of many tournaments, a long-time fixture in the world...

      Well, you gotta flick it. Or you can spin it. You gotta take that extra step before you spin it.

      So say Roula, with fingers aplenty twenty. It is known.

      I think a blade can be harder on one and softer on the other side.

      But I don’t think a blade can be flexy on one side, but stiff on the other. Similarly, I don’t think it can have a different...

      Yes, I meant what IB66 wrote. And I don't think it's futile and pointless at all; changing rhythm and pace of rallies is a powerful weapon, that cuts both ways.

      Blocking and countering are not T05's strengths. It's too spin-sensitive and bouncy for comfortable passive blocking (to my taste). That's why I prefer Fastarc-G1, which (to me) is in the same...
