      Favourite player video thread

      Hi guys!
      Since we all have our favourite players and we usually see them play via internet streaming or video's, I though I could make a thread about this Do you remember the first video you saw from a player that made you like him? Post it here! This can also be an interview, documentary or whatever type of video. Just the one that made you like the player

      I'll kick it off with this video of Zhang Jike. When I watched this for the first time I had no idea who he was, but I was a fan from then on

      Easy for me because I watched it not long after the event. Was incredible to see a European player winning the World Champs in 2003 and Werner Schlager has been my favourite player ever since

      Schlager has amazing serves and what a backhand. Great player.

      This is also an amazing match. That is Joo at his best and Schlager at his best as well.

      The video that actually made me love Waldner was watching him lose to Persson in the World Championships. That was back in 1991. I played for about 3 months back then at a club and then had to stop for important things like work and life after college.

      Zhang Jike for me as well. Love his style a lot(basically a remodelled more powerful version of Kong Linghui with even better serves). So much power and yet so much control, perfect BH block and loop. But I personally dislike his proud attitude which is shown through his public statements.
      Technique is at least 10 times more important than the equipment. When have you seen people giving credit to the shoes when a runner wins?

      i think my favorite european players is Vladimir Samsonov (he has such an elegant style). My favorite non-european has to be Wang Li Qin. His forehand has such a power drive unbelievable. Shame both players are in the 30's and i don't think they will play there best games anymore .

      He is very self-confident, to the edge of arrogance indeed. xD But I like that. What I like is that he loops so controlled, especially against players that are much lower level than he is. You can see that he loops in first gear, and when the opponent starts catching those loops, he goes a gear up. It seems like he can up his game endlessly when his opponent starts to get a bit back, that must be really discouraging to play against.

      sorry i changed my mind. My new favorite player is dr Herbert Neubauer he won allot. Here is a short list:
      •7 times World Veterans Champion
      •5 times European Veterans Champion
      •4 Gold Medals at the World Senior Games in St George/USA
      •2 Gold Medals at the European Master Games in Malmö/Sweden
      •60 Gold Medals at Swiss Championships

      Here is a video of him.



      My favorite part is the knee-angle he used during play.

      The same Bro Matt
      But I love the vid of him defeating Kong Linghui and Wang Liqin in the same tournament.

      For Joo, simply the 2003 China Open is the best.
