    Nice one! I wrote a blog post last month where I shared my thoughts on Timo Boll's major strengths (http://www.tabletenniscoach.me.uk/play-like-timo-boll/).

    Could you ask him what he thinks his three biggest strengths are and why?

    What are his thoughts on age in TT - how long does he think he can carry on as a pro at the very top level, taking into account he is playing some of his best TT now?

    - Given his age, did he change his training in order to don't force his body too much?

    - Does he plan to have some kind of open training sessions / workshop around the world?

    You are arguably one of the most likeable athletes on the whole circuit. One would argue this is due to your calmness, sportsmanship and positive attitude. Did your parents and/or coach guide you to be this way when growing up as a table tennis player or are you naturally this awesome?

    Timo, did you let Dima win the World cup?? :-P
    (that is a teasing one, but please, ask him )

    Timo - the older you get, the better you play! Are you going to step into Waldner´s footsteps and going to beat few chinese players in Tokio?

    Timo - what do you think about food? Is it important for you? Do you have some diet or way of eating? (vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic food, rawfood etc..)

    PS: I heared some rummors, that you got some players available for you when you want to train. Is that position free? I want it!

    Thank you!

    Does he have some explanation for the sudden surge in strength of his and Dima. In a current interview Rösskopf mentioned he and Dima would beam from confidence. Would he attribute it mainly to mentality?

    The victory against Lee Sangsu was very impressive, I think. Was that a display of that new positive mindset or were other factors, e.g. he seemed to have serious problems with the return of Boll's service.

    We have seen Timo being more aggressive on the backhand and seemingly moving faster in the last few months. Has he worked on anything specific or made any specific strategic / technical changes recently ... does he feel that his body is stronger than before after the surgery last year ?

    We saw his plan on creating an online table tennis platform to share technical tips and analyze videos. Does he have any details to share on this and what is his target audience ? Is it going to be restricted to professional / semi professional players or open to everybody including amateurs and even beginners ? How is it going to differentiate itself from existing online coaching programs ?

    Are you still training like in your 20s or do you take more breaks now and prepare for the tournaments in the weeks prior? How satisfied are you with the current quality of balls and do you see chances of China's mens team being beaten at the 2018 world championship?

    Where did you develop your unique style, and where did your grip change, service and forehand receive technique innovations come from?

    Will you ever come to NZ? :P

    And finally, how have you been able to have such a strong winning record against Jun Mizutani Pre 2015/2016?

    Timo, you have a very short forehand shot compared to the typical Chinese straight arm. Is the straight arm shot a big advantage? If you had a time machine, would you go back in time to teach yourself a straight arm loop?

    Dear Timo,

    Your play and results seem to have dipped by 2016, partly due to (back?) injury (I think).
    Yet, you are now at the top of your game in 2017, and it's great to see!
    What do you attribute this regain of strength to? Healing, change of training, more motivation, change of tactics, long adaptation to the plastic ball, new better plastic balls...?
    And what in particular has allowed you to beat Ma Long and other Chinese players this year?

    Also, why do you favor the Straight handle over the Flared?

    Best!

    - Thomas

    In this Chinese news, Timo mentioned that Butterfly will make him new sticky rubbers more suitable for close-to-table play. Does he think close-to-table works better for the new material ball?
    http://sports.people.com.cn/n1/2017/...-29607556.html
    He also mentioned in the above interview after World Cup that he developed some new techniques and tactics during T2 League. Will he play T2 in next season? What does he find different from other leagues he played, like in Germany and China?
    http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136775014.htm
    In this Xinhua News interview, he mentioned he has regular medical checks every two weeks. Is it for back injury? Does he have any special physical training other than technical training?

    It will be great if somebody has the time and energy to translate these interviews ... the google translation is not very good ...

    Could you talk about the place you put your index finger on the blade when you return serve? Should we all be doing it the way you do?
