      They use butterfly balls

      Lebesson coming back from 9-6 in the fifth against Samsanov... Incidently, the European champion is listed as"Other" in the poll? Interesting to see how he'll fare in a tough group, also clearly having the public behind him.

      Edit: scratch that, Kou Lei gave him no mercy (11-8 11-9 11-3).

      says really love hearing Adam
      commenting but donĀ“t
      appreciate he (probably
      unwanted) gives the word
      Dictator a positive meaning.
      There is nothing positive
      about Dictators. PERIOD!

      IIRC the ETTU has made a contract to be only using the Nittaku Premium Balls for their events.

      Under Equipment it says butterfly (white), maybe the contract expired in 2017?

      And here is a photo from the ittf flickr page where it clearly is a butterfly ball.

      I like how Bernie is desperately trying not to look at the ball in that pic. That's how bad it is.

      G40+ I presume?

      I would like to a see these top 12/16 etc. tournaments with swiss system or giant round robin. It would give a more clear image about the players skills.

      That's what they did for years (Europe Top 12, giant round robin).
      Problem is, it's boring for spectators waiting to get an idea of who is ahead for several matches/too many games all at once/last few rounds are pointless for the players with little or no chance left/no real 'Final'. That's why they changed it.

      It is interesting how Andrej Gacina is now being fed by his coach serves seemingly similar to the ones of Kou Lei.

      Timo Boll was too passive after the 3rd set. He struggled to make good returns on Gauzy's serves. gg

      That has been Gauzy's advantage over Boll for a while now (failure to read his short serves) and I don't know why Boll can't fix it.
