You dominated him pretty thoroughly so it's hard to find many errors. Your backhand swing is big, not to say kreanga-like. That's not necessarily bad, but I can imagine it doesn't leave you enough time vs faster players. Do you have a smaller stroke you can use with different rubber, that just doesn't work with H3 37? And you pushed a few long balls with your forehand even though you seem to win more points on that side. It didn't hurt you against an LP blocker, but it would vs loopers. Maybe you only did that in this match?
Good stuff is easy to find. Your serves got some receive errors even with his LP. You handled his blocks like they were nothing. And your placements were either into his body, or one to the forehand and then back behind his backhand side, very effective. And you were very consistent with only one or two unforced errors. It was a really nice sequence.
Puh "kreanga-like" is a huge compliment, thank you for that. But yeah that is exactly what failed me later on in the tournament and nearly lost me the doubles final which i didnt upload because it is double where it is even harder to see errors i have in a singles match.
Normal flicks and shorter bh topspins just didnt work with the hurricane 3. I guess to make it work i have to have a motion like Ma Long or Liang Jingkun which is way more consistent and stronger while the motion is shorter. That is the main reason i switched.
The thing with pushing vs attacking is smth i have to fully admit. I am srsly bad at it and need to always mentally focus on attacking to overcome this. Otherwise i will push again instead of attacking. Dunno when this weird habit got to me.
And no i do this pretty often 😪
Thank you for the feedback - really appreciated.
