    Amazing attendance. 🙄



    EDIT: I didn't notice the "please do not sit" sign on the seats. Damn covid.

    I don't recall the last time I saw a top level CNT member take an 11-1 drubbing by a non-CNT. After one of the rallies, LJK had this incredulous look like wow, everything is coming at me like a bullet. Impressive indeed!

    Maybe I'm watching too many highlight videos instead of full matches, but are counterlooping rallies becoming more common again? Seems like even CNT players are stepping back from the table earlier and more frequently.

    Anyone else find the streaming system reeeally slow and glitchy on WTT?
    Basically I can't watch any of the matches until the later rounds when it's licensed with Kayo here in Aus.

    IT's obvious he needed it to go to game 7 and to take a bathroom break 😋. Too bad for him it was best of 5.

    communication of course is a fine art, we all know that.
    The WTT webpage clearly states that play begins 10 20 am every day..................well, it is 10 45 now and nothing !!!!!!!!!!!
    Now i am not fussy, a few minutes here or there, whatever. But it would be nice if we could get a heads up when there is a delay, or a "see you in 5 minutes for the next match"", just a little message, after all, there are thousands of people waiting, right ?

    Brilliant !!!!!! If one goes to RESULTS one can find the SCHEDULED EVENTS

    I'm so enjoying seeing Quadri Aruna play so well! Even though he lost to Calderano it was a good game and he looked impressive.
    If Quadri could develop a consistent medium-pace / just-stay-in-the-rally backhand I reckon he'd probably be hovering around a world ranking of 10-15 consistently.

    Looks like they've stopped that nonsense.

    The biggest problem he has to face is that Nigerian backhand coaching is just abysmal - so he has to fix years of bad technical practice - he has worked on it a lot in Europe and now has an overall effective backhand game but there is room for improvement.

    But to me, they are probably still teaching 1980s backhand looping technique in Nigeria. That is what he has to overcome in his muscle memory.

    I'm loving how aggressive HH is right out of the gate. Even in losing the 2nd game, she never let down her aggressiveness.

    Had to step away for a bit, but the match is over now. I'll have to watch the highlights.

    I guess with WTT no more full match replays 😪

    Anyone finally conclude that for Hugo is a good athlete, but maybe TT is not quite his thing? By TT, I mean serve and serve return with the table craft of short pushing, controlling spins and keeping the ball low as the emphasis?

    It's all relative but the Harimoto destruction makes me wonder...

    Hugo does look a bit uncomfortable with close play at the moment but, to be fair to him, Harimoto really stepped up a level or two in that match. That was the best I've seen him play in a while and, if he's able to maintain that level for the final, he might even put some pressure on FZD.

    Hugo's inability to effectively FH flip short balls on his FH is a huge weakness for a player at that level. IMO, that explains at least some of it.
