      Wrong Handed Timo Boll vs TableTennisDaily's Dan!

      Hey guys! Bit of fun today. We all know how well Timo Boll swaps hands and plays an incredible right handed shot! So today we put his wrong hand to the test in a fun 1 set challenge match where I use my strong hand against Timo's weak hand

      Watch the video below:

      It's pretty frickin' amazing how well Timo plays with his right hand!
      I'm right handed and I wouldn't know how to hit a ball with my left hand, don't even mention service receives.

      That arc! How does Timo get so much spin on his forehand loops? Left-handed, no less.

      Because he practises it? It's totally obvious that he doesn't have anything like the same ability with his right-handed backhand. We only ever see Timo switch hands to play a forehand. Virtually all of Dan's serves were to Timo's backhand. It would have been a different game if Dan had only played to Timo's RH forehand.

      Well... There's a never a reason to switch to the other hand for a backhand stroke.

      I think I have a chance against a right-handed Boll.

      He's more consistent with his right hand than me when practicing topspin to topspin lol

      The score was kind of expected. Adam also won (11-6) against Timo with his weak hand in his ask a pro anything last year.

      It's actually insane I agree! He has such good structure in his strokes even with his right hand Amazing!

      Genius player! I actually don't recall Timo missing a swap hand shot in a match.

      Watching back I agree, it's a shame I didn't serve a bit more to Timo's forehand. You're right in a match he swaps to his forehand so this is his strong side. Impressive indeed.

      Oh I didn't realise Adam played Timo with his weak hand. I just watched it now, very funny match!
