Late to the party on this one as well!
Not sure I can add much to what’s already been said….. But when has that stopped me! 😂
As a fellow tall guy (I’m 6ft 4), getting low is great….. But if you can’t recover for the next shot, it’s a bit useless.
I’d like to see you continuing to loop after that first shot, because it feels like you are at 60-70% on the first one, with a long follow through (a bit like Golf…. Holding the pose).
Us tall chaps have a great advantage when it comes to reaching wide balls and getting good shots in - We can still get a full loop when stretching, where shorter people would struggle.
We clearly have downsides as well, but let’s not talk about our weaknesses! 😂
The biggest thing I’d say for you is to relax your grip a little (you hold the bat very high, and you can see how far on the backhand rubber your finger is).
When you do this, it makes it very hard to generate extra spin and speed from your wrist, and you are never going to get it just from your arm….. Which is what is happening here.
Now, I know I’ve shown this video many times before (sorry to the regular viewers), but it helps showing what I’m trying to explain.
I also like the fact you have 2 opposites of the table tennis technique.
Myself (red shirt), plays a more European technique and has strength and size to work with (less speed and footwork).
My partner (black shirt) is more of a Chinese style and size…..
So hopefully people watching can see it from both sides.
Watch my forehand though, it’s very often a “whippy” FH where I drop the wrist and whip it through.
Note - I’m not saying anything you see in the video is perfect from a professional level. There are a million things I, and my partner can improve.
However, I feel videos like this can be more… Accessible to most people, rather than seeing Professionals do the drills (if that makes sense).
The level you see in this video is attainable by the every day person (providing they get coaching of course!)
