      I still think many players never will master the short push against serves that have no backspin, because it is too difficult and they do not develop that kind of touch. Think more players will learn to make rather okey flips. Or atleast that is my experience.

      Yes, i am talking more about inverted rubber. I can barely do not do the push i think about because the ball slips on my rubber and do not grip well so can not create the spin to make the ball to stop. But then because of the slipping part i do not need to brush the ball as much, just change the angle. And with my playing style i do not do this kind of returns so much. If i can flip the ball well i rather do that, than push short. I also try to do the banana flip and a aggressive push with my short pimple. I am better when i get a somewhat bad loop against me than when i need to do the opening loop. Especially opening loops with my forehand is my biggest weakness and good players can exploit this so i try to avoid this everyway possible.

      I was about to write something about the great time I had during the weekend training in Warsaw but then I saw the extremely sad news that Ulf Bengtsson died today way too early. European champ 1984. RIP.

      funny I believe the short push taught by Baraty in the video above, would be rather considered as an advanced stroke, here in Japan

      The preferred and more basic shot to make a short receive, they call it "STOP" and its really about taking the ball as early as possible and adjusting the bat angle to keep it really short. only on very heavy backspin serve you need to lift the ball a little bit as you do that to avoid a net miss, but its not really recommended to enter the ball agressively with spin for the STOP

      thats the one i use most for receiving. I seldom try the (long) push receive on a short ball but i definitely should do it more and practice it more.

      like all receive to short FH, step towards the ball with right foot (heel FIRST) under the table, and body facing 11 o'clock.
      be very quick because we must catch the ball right after the bounce, with a very light vertical chop, a slightly open wrist and a very loose grip to absorb speed and energy. If you're a bit late, then the receive will be one bounce only, - or worse - ball will come off the table.

      If you know already how to do "stop" receive against no spin or backspin, the touch is not so different, just the angle of the racket and that light chopping motion so just try it !
      Did he talk about taking the ball close to your handle? Curious.

      No I don’t remember him talking about that detail

      I tried today to do the exercise suggested by Eli Baraty in his video to do quality short backspin push. I got 0 on that. Lol

      I know that it is not a ponzi. I know them and i would not post it if i thought it was a ponzi.

      And i Do not understand how you think it can be a ponzi when you Do not need to invest any money.

      But i can agree it is proably hard to win because alot of people Will participate because it is a very good deal if you win.

      So here's the situation. Last night was the last match of the season. Two teams from our club were up for the championship in the division. We shall call the teams us and them . We were following them since the beginning of the season in the second place. Before last night, we had 4 draws, 1 loss, and 16 wins, and they had 4 draws, and 17 wins. Given the fact that they have never lost a match this season and they were facing a team from the middle of the table, we were not hopeful about our chances. Now, imagine their team 4-5 behind and the last match is being held at the same time that we are 5-1 ahead and need a single win to win our match. I look from the side of my eye to check the other table, and I see that their last match is 0-2 and 9-3 in the third set, and I think to myself this is going to be a long match. But, when I win the match and look at the scoreboard, I see that their top man lost that set 12-10, so they lost 4-6 in their last match of the season and at the same time we won our match. With equal score it became clear that we had won 5 individual matches more than them, and this is how we became the champions of the division after following them for the WHOLE season! And as a cherry on top, I became the individual champion of the season. It all feels like a miracle in the last minute.

      Who said low level leagues can't have drama?

      Yet participating requires not only signing off yourself and what's yours to the Empire that Eats Souls, but surrendering three of your friends to it too.

      It may not be easy, but we should start putting a stop to the scheme of abuse also known as Facebook.

      I feel that No one is forced to either join Facebook or the chance to win a place at the training camp. Just Tried my friends at Japsko out and give you guys a chance to win a place.

      I also Do not think it is very strange that they want you to share it with your friends. Not many people give away something for free. A training camp/ vacation worth about 700 USD is pretty much money so i understand that they want something for it. Think sharing it with your friends is a small price.

      But like i Said, everyone should Do What they want to.
