I agree with Eric's assessment of Power Grip. It is simply a nice allround offensive modern control rubber that suits a lot of strokes well.

Very few matches so no sample size but I'm sure he would be the favorite. Just not his day and even then it still took duece in 5.

Nice Video again Smile Thumbs Up. Your games are like Heinz 57 varieties... Never really sure if you'll be winning by chopping, looping or running around like a nutcase getting the ball back that extra time ..but you always work your socks off Thumbs Up .

Cheers

Highlights from 2019 US Nationals. Note: 3rd opponent was 2200 finalist, 4th opponent 2400 finalist, 5th opponent 50 men finalist. 
Warning - these are highlights. I played many horrible points throughout the week with countless unforced errors not seen in this video. My unofficial results are 25 matches played, winning just 12 of them.

Even allowing for the fact that it's a highlights film, you looked great.  Those were some of the best shots I've seen from you in a while (compare, for example, to some of your earlier videos in this thread).  You looked more aggressive and your backhand was dynamite.  Very nice!

Fantastic points by you/Heavyspin; like benfb said best I have seen from your play in years. When i make a shot like you did often at that tournament (for me it is like once every other month) I go full on Bobrow.

Some of those blocks off the bounce are out of this world! since they are flatter than brushing, it takes a great deal of angle and timing to succeed and a life long of experience is showing. It was a pleasure to watch it all.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm beginning to reap benefits of having great new practice partners (shown here photo of my coaching them to a 3-1 record in the mini-cadet girls team). Their up at the table fast pace game improves my quickness - not necessarily as in moving side to side, but quickness to react and get ready.

Your use of the "tip up"  Fh block off the bounce to cover shots to your elbow is great.  That could be a game changer for those of us who are footwork challenged.

Your Bh appeared to be flatter and more of a punch than I remembered.  Is that an intended change, just a situational thing, or just totally my imagination?

HS hit some incredible BH shots with great power.

Regarding the backhand, I've made an effort to change from over the top brush contact to back of the ball contact with an over the top follow through. More forearm and less wrist as well. The former stroke worked with the pre-plastic ball but doesn't work now due to slippage. 

A small change I've made was switching from Fruit of the Loom athletic socks to Hanes. For me, Hanes are more comfortable. A big change I made was avoiding all buffets from my first match to last. I admit to having a buffet before and after. Physically, I felt best on my last day of competition - after 4 buffet-less days.

I'm really interested in this because I had the same problem with my opening BH loop.  Can you say more about how you changed this stroke?

When I started to read this sentence, my brain saw "Fruit of the Loom" and immediately jumped to the word "underwear" before i was the word "socks."LOL "Plays with Tenergy underwear, only $200/pair."

By the way, it's interesting how highlight videos not only make one player look great, they make the other players look bad.  In this video, you look magnificent, untouchable.  At the same time, your opponents look like they should be competing for the U1200 prize.  It's all an illusion, but it shows how much performance depends upon both opponents.

LOL - that is so true. It's rarely a great thing to be featured on someone else's highlight reel. LOL

Selective editing makes for a video but I was not doing so well overall and struggling to keep the ball on the table. Going to try something way slower soon and maybe even try classic defense, FH chopping etc.

It amazes me how you're willing to throw yourself on the floor to retrieve some of these balls.  If I did that my knees wouldn't let me get back up again without help.Big smile

Side note for everyone else: at about the 6:00 mark, you can see a nice point between Eric and Vince.

 That wasn't the point I was expecting. We had another point that I thought was much longer than that one which he won the point. That's the one I was figuring was gonna show up.

Megha's rating is 1691.  What you saw in the rally against Eric is the way she plays.  She has recent wins against 1700 and 1800 rated players.  She plays in the Sacramento CA area and has league wins against 1900 players.  At the Nationals she beat a 1752 player and didn't lose to any lower rated players.

Eric beat her 3-0 with 2 of the games deuce. I beat her 3-0 6,5,6. She was third in the RR group and finished 3rd.

Actually, this doesn't surprise me.  We have an older player in our club who uses short and long pips and plays a similar style.  His rating is around the same and I remember at Nationals last year he knocked off a 1900 and an 1800.  Side note-- this year he switched to mostly hard bat at Nationals and won the U1500 hard bat event.
