This week at the T2 Diamond Malaysia event which an ITTF innovation lab tested the pink rubber with Bernadette Szocs.

      Yeah my opinion on this hasn't changed really. It's fine. I don't think it's that big of a deal. If people want to express themselves with different colors, let them. Black & red will still be an option for those who want it.

      I love it. I remember advocating for this change about 10-15 years ago, but didn't think it would actually ever materialize. I can't wait to see when new colored rubbers become commercially available.

      They really dolled her up for this commercial. From outfit to the nails, although I'm sure Bernie was more rhan willing to oblige. Mission accomplished, and Bernie walks home with as much prize money as a T2 finalist.

      Pink / black does not really make much difference to red / black.

      But I thought this rule change did not come into effect yet?

      This is T2's event, not ITTF's event though there is some collaboration wrt ranking points. ITTF has said in the past that they are using T2 events as a laboratory of elements they may use in ITTF events.

      Have you seen scarlet johansson ? She's very beautiful and not comparable with bernie . Coming to topic I really dont like this colorful rubbers , The feeling of _ table tennis is not a sport _ comes to my mind and it feels like table tennis is not serious . Its just my opinion but I guess we will see more colors in women side

      There will be no Pink (or any other color) Bernadette at the 2nd T2 event (Sept. 26-29). Cut off was World Tour Standing after Australian Open.

      Let's have meanings for colours

      I proposed a rainbow of colours a few years ago - but for more than variety. They can be a great help to understanding when table tennis is shown on TV.

      Few if any TV viewers understand at the moment what is really happening because they can't see the characteristics of the rubber that is used - e.g. fast, slow, spinny or anti-loop, long or short pimples.

      I proposed that playing characteristics shouild be clearly colour coded. Brighter colours would show more reactive rubber, dark colours less reactive. And each of the types of surface has a different colour associated with it. E.g. orange for spin, blue for long pimples.

      This is brilliant for the audience, who can appreciate the player's skill in using a particular rubber for service. And they can learn a lot. How do long pimples fare against anti-loop, for instance? Or against loop rubber? But this would also be brilliant for manufacturers - because each rubber only needs to be made in one colour, the colour that defines it.

      What do you think?

      She could get a wildcard.

      Not just any match, so the rubber shouldn´t have been just any rubber, but something resembling her regular rubber close enough.

      Anybody got info on that?

      This is honestly a brilliant idea. ITTF should see this.

      The pink rubber looks like a toy ping pong paddle, very unprofessional.

      Yeah, or as she´s been using on her backhand recently an EL-S.

      Doesn´t look like it, though ... But of course they could print anything on it.
