      I call it worst of the best. They're all top drawer players and I picked the worst part of their games.
      I wonder what that rating of such a player would be (WR)

      Great choices here! I’m surprised you’ve chosen Karakasevic, not too many people know about him! Definitely a great choice for the back hand. What I would change is maybe a mix between Yoshimura and Par Garell! Both have killer serves. Also while Christian is great on his feet, I gotta say Ma Lin or Ma Long for footwork .

      Not sure if Pletea's footwork is actually better but it just looks perfect on video. (And from any of the top Chinese players perfect footwork almost goes without saying...)

      With Calderano's serves, it never struck me as though they were especially difficult for other players to deal with but I would just love to have such a consistent high-toss serve.

      As for Karakasevic, in the age of YouTube it is easier than ever before to watch hours and hours of table tennis and come across players slightly less well-known.

      Agreed! There’s some players that you just can’t help but admire... or some players that, dare I say, look “cool”. Karakasevic is one of those players! He never really struck me as a successful player, but his play style really defined the way I developed as a player. I love his touch and feel, especially with the backhand. Do you have a favorite player at the moment?

      CHEN Meng isn't a Grand Slam Champion but she's the new type of very physical player and I think no one has ever had such power before in the Womens game. I'd rank LI Xiaoxia next after her.

      Same for ITO, hasn't won anything significant yet but her BH is the fastest and most spectacular in the world.
