    Thanks Matt, appreciate your quick response. He is a real treat to watch. Personally, I admire him for his control and wide pallette of shot selection. I have been following him like crazy and I noticed that top players avoided putting ball to his backhand. That speaks volumes about his talent.
    I also saw one of his interviews while doing a YouTube search and he mentioned in that interview that he is lazy and he knows that he should be practicing more. I also remembered that the interviewer called him as "the best hands in Europe in table tennis". He is one of the very few players who can hit a backhand topspin while playing against choppers. So there you have it. I really wish that I get to meet him sometime and just tell him that how much his playing style has an influence on my learning process.

    Most of the times practice, patience and an observant mind answers all your questions

    He likes messing with equipment. He used Killerspin Diamond, custom blades, some allwood blade, now Carbonado... This story takes place around the time the first plastic balls appeared.

    Now Kreanga is playing again I will say Kreanga as my favourite , but best if we're being honest it has to be Ma Long or Fan Zhendong.

    FZD - Best BH in the word. But we all knew that.

    What you might not know is that Xue Fei has the best current RPB in the world. He's amazing. This is Wang Hao level type of BH we're talking here.

    I rest my case
