Wow. Thor played a match with no audible F bombs. I didn't think that was even possible! 
Last time played Thor before the lock down there were at least 6-8 F bombs while beating him. LOL

I met Thor in Korea not so long after this vid I think.

Sounds like Thor keeps it real.

Vince,

When you defeated me in a Sac tourney a couple years back, did the vid tape catch me 6-8 times a point with some compliments to you?

LOL. Was our match on video? I remember some comments of you pumping your self up during the match after some good shots. Other than I just remember being able to pull out the match in game 5. I can't believe that match is almost from 2 years ago.

Thor would fly to Seattle quite often to play at the club. After his first outburst (which is always at himself not the opponent) I would point to all the kids to him saying he can't use those type of words. It was quite amusing listening to him come up with alternate choices of words. He's a good guy.

I was too scare-die-cat to step into the ball on your serve with confidence and I paid for it. That, and you were better I believe were two big reasons you won.

Thor raised a boy who became a man who broke 2100 with a very fluid euro style on both wings, you know, that slow/fast commitment. Studies took over as it is the norm in the USA. His son carries table tennis as a tool that was given by his dad for the rest of their life, I salute them for what the did together whatever that was because the son delivered an expert level. 
I failed interesting my 2 daughters into tt, they wanted to keep the dad when the coach wanted to take over so they both fired the coach. 
Thor is having a cool table tennis life; and maybe the best is yet to come, I wonder what the grand kids will do Clap.

He was using inverted on both sides this match. Previous time we played he was using his SP on his BH.

Pretty sure that Thor is still using SP on backhand in this match.  That SP backhand gets him a lot of points up to a certain level, and then I think it becomes a liability against better players.  I've seen him try out inverted on backhand too, but I've never seen the experiment last too long (Yes, and sometimes the result was him ripping the rubber off the bat immediately after a loss Smile ).

I've played Thor back in 38mm ball days when I think he was playing at his best level (he was about 2300 at one point).  Back then it seemed his FH loop was a bigger part of his game.  It was a pretty powerful force to try to control way back when.

Yes, your coming back in tt values a lot to the your students and our forum. I missed meeting you last time when I visited Philippines a few years back, and also missed meeting Haggisv in Australia one year ago when I was there. I hope I can play with our mods and members around the world in my future travelsTongue

Seeing Thor’s name brings back memories. I can say I beat him in the finals at the Nationals a long, long time ago. 😅
