      Hi Mattias,

      How did you start using short pips?
      Is the real blade you use a DHS W968? Here is a photo from a recent match of yours (taken from ITTV):Name:  MattiasFalckRacket.jpg

      Lol, guys. Do you really want to make a yasaka sponsored player lie? Imho, its a very provacative question. :/

      I think it would be bettor to ask if he'd used some other blades and which one is mosk suitable for his playstyle. ^^

      It looks like you change grip somewhat much between bh and fh. Have you always Done this? Did this come naturally or is it something you Did on purpose and have worked on?

      I notice that you sometimes work around and loop against backspin with your short pimple. Why Do you Do this? For variation? Feel like you have a better quality with the backhand loop against backspin because you have inverted and a very good backhand.

      One of the biggest weakness of short pimple is the opening loop against backspin. How Do you think when looping the first ball with short pimpel? Get it low and far away? Have you trained alot on this? Do you try to avoid getting this ball against you? Why Do you never try to smash the backspin ball harder players with penhold Do?

      Also interested if he boost his short pimple and how soft it is. It sounds very soft.

      Thanks.

      Hey Mattias, after your stellar performance at the WTTC, what's your next goal? Is there anything you are working on in particular, like certain techniques or tournament finish?

      Hi Mattias, after the 40+ ABS balls most of the players tend to play close to the table using short strokes. I have noticed that your backhand stroke is a fuller and longer stroke which uses more of your arm. How do you compensate with a longer stroke when the ball is blocked very fast back to your backhand? Do you think you have a disadvantage against players like Harimoto when you step back from the table.
      Thanks and good luck for your future
      Most of the times practice, patience and an observant mind answers all your questions

      I can imagine player with shorter strokes have to tense to stop the stroke and then it takes time to relax again. While Maybe Mattias with a longer stroke Do not tense as much due to the longer stroke and Do not lose time on becoming relaxed.

      How do you find that a inner composite blade is the better option for playing SP on FH? Why not a 7 ply blade or a Yasaka Alnade kind of blade?

      I could be wrong, but Ito loops with short pips on her BH and LGL loops with short pips on his FH. I think looping with short pips is a common technique among players who utilize it.

      I think it would be more fun to see how good he loops with an inverted on the forehand.

      You should know I am asking this since it would be a good chance to see it in close up point of view and for everybody to see it. I know how to loop using sp both fh and bh but I will not let the opportunity pass not to see him do it.

      Hi Mattias, what means and what steps do you think that ETTU has to take in order to see more Europeans players in the top 20 of the World.

      Mattias, congratulations for great success. Do you find interesting possibility to reverse history and beat chinese with their old weapon (years ago chinese were kings of short pips and swedes were kings of loops, now chinese are best loopers, and you are best sp hitter)?
      Why you decided to use pips?

      Hi Matthias, how come we don't see anyone else with short pips on the forehand and not many with short pips on the backhand either at the top levels? How do the pros outweigh the cons for you?
