    11 year old David Bjorkryd vs TableTennisDaily's Dan!

    Hey everyone,

    During our recent visit to the Swedish Open with STIGA I challenged rising star David Bojorkryd to a 1 set showdown! David is the Swedish number 1 in the under 11's and is also the youngest player ever to qualify for the Swedish National Senior Championships! Jan Ove Waldner was 12 when he played in the Swedish National Championships!

    David Bjorkryd vs Dan!



    David is a promising player and a wonderful kid. I'am looking forward to watching his progress!

    Stay tuned for more TableTennisDaily 1 set showdowns!

    I predict 11-9 Dan.
    What do I win? j/k

    Seriously, nice set, Dan. David is very good. Thanks for sharing this video; it was a fun watch.

    It was a good game. Very entertaining however anyone noticed a dizziness when watching the video? Was that the recording angle or just me?

    Although David has excellent fundamentals, Dan was clearly comfortable with the rally exchanges, as David had no advantage there. Would love to see a rematch after he develops more power and tactical experience.

    Hahaha. This is great. Now I want to see a best of 5 or 7.

    Good stuff. It will be fun to watch the kid progress. Just wait till he doesn't need heels to see over the edge of the table. Dan will stand no chance.

    I wish my TT skills were half yours. This really was fun to watch though. That kid seems to be able to run everything down. But you were also being pretty nice. Thanks for this video. It was a treat to watch.

    Make sure you never meet him again! That way you can tell your grandchildren that you have positive statistics against David Björkryd...

    I made it full screen and watched a bit more carefully and the dizziness was gone.

    You are TOO nice to the kid!

    Yes, Dan was nice but the kid is good for his age no doubt. The kid didn't make many unforced errors. Dan could force the kid to play a power game that the kid could not match so the kid just started retrieving. The initiative was always with Dan.

    Dan's heavy slow spin and placement (and NETS) were his large weapons, yes he was taking it easy on the power hit opportunities a lot but big deal, kid showed his stuff and it will only get better.

    A very enjoyable game between you and Master Bjorkryd, aka "The Kid". He has a solid punch lefty backhand to try to neutralize your stronger semihigh throw forehand loop, moves very nicely fh to bh from mid-distance, and sports a nice quick off the bounce fh counterdrive. Not only that, you and he can RALLY! Legal serves too. Refreshing.

    He’s currently ranked at place 184 in Sweden which is pretty good for a 12 year old. Dan would not win the rematch.

    I sometimes think you lose just to be polite. Specially against Waldner I thought you could easily win. He wasn’t playing good at all.

    Agreed.

    That was particularly true when Dan played against the robot IMHO. Didn't want to hurt it's feelings I suppose
