By popular demand here is a vid of me practicing tonight. I am the one in the stripey shirt who walks around the court swinging his arm a lot.

My mate was struggling a lot with his rubbers and a lack of practice, so I have cut out a lot of service winners etc or you would get really bored.

I just realized it doesn't actually look stripey on the vid, but rest assured it isn't pink, it is red, blue and white stripes.
I start off nearest the camera.

juan, good to c ya in practise. man i still got a lot to learn, what i like about ur play is ur so relaxed, espcially on that fh side, something i need to still get used to.
ur loops reminds me of the hungarians in the 70s, u follow through smoothly and get those crazy angles, just like a jonyer of gergley lol.

my fav moment was that going for broke swinging ur hand to the other side, behind ur back,  a timo boll moment lol.

Clarify please as there is more than  one "stripey" shirt being worn in the vid.

And you want to work on your tact.
Why move when you don't need to?
There are many things I could work on if I wanted to and if I had the time, maybe TT is not important enough to me at the moment. I have a family and a job and many other things going on. I don't just sit at my computer all day and then pop out for a bit of TT you know.
 
As you anticipation improves, you will look like you are moving less too LiXiao.

thats what i was just going to say- didn't look like he really had to move..what he was doing was working obviously. Why run to a ball if its right there? if what youre doing is working, why change it?

I thought that was obvious.. Besides i've ran into so many players who dont need to move because they have great tactics, strategy, and placement over a lot of people.

Maybe you need to play a little more in real life. Watching professionals play all the time and comparing them to the rest of us is just unrealistic. They have to have every attribute to be hightened to compete at the world-class level. But i guess that stuff isn't always clear if youre still a beginner leveled player.

I was going to say something about how you move away from the table rather quickly but then realized it seems to work with that opponent so you were maybe just doing it in that situation. If I saw my opponent backing off the table that quickly I would take a few of his lobs quicker off the bounce and work him from side to side.

One thing I noticed is that you do not smash the ball with the forehand when you have the chance, even when really high, for almost certain winners. Are you going easy with your opponent?

is this really practice? Looks like you are just playing around. Also you are bowling with your forehand.

Yeah, your style looks relatively effortless - nice BHs off push. Your practice partner there looks much more intense.....

The other thing I noticed was the loud click of your partner's racket - what does he use??

In any sport, when you stop moving your opponent can beat you. Thats true in any racket sport. Be it tennis, squash, table tennis, badminton, etc etc. You watcht the pros play they are always moving. Take Ma Lin for example.

good work guys ...your games are looking good .

the one thing i noticed was just that your arm looks to be really extended strait when u hit your FH loop....but at the same time it really looks like u use a lot of wrist action

keep up the good work

He has Express (don't know which number) on FH and Tenergy on BH. He is really unhappy with the Express.

I don't smash that often, looping is more fun. I was trying to keep the rallies going longer too.

Nice , stable,smooth. I like your shots......., but I wonder why did you have to step back so far? Is it because you were enjoying playing like this that very moment, or it is your style? More experienced, or faster player would take a quick advantage of such a situation

I usually go to the table with Plan A - blitz people off with a heavy topspin loop and spinny blocks (to either side) after a chop or float serve or Plan B - back off and chase down everything looping it back to the corners.
 
You would be surprised how many faster, more experienced players can't take advantage when I am away from the table. I have very good anticipation and can actually move very fast considering my size when I need to. It isn't too long since I beat a player in the top 15 in England at a Grand Prix tournament using just this tactic and I am a better player now than I was then.

How can you deny that. Watching the pros makes you better. Otherwise why would training videos be made. So i guess you can go back to doing nothing when playing and just not learn.

Training vids are made so noobs like you can buy them and dream. You have to reach a certain level before you should be trying to copy the pro's. you would be better finding someone reasonable at your local club and asking them for a few tips.
 
Just put a link on to your vid LiXiao then we can all have a laugh.LOL

Hard to say from one vid, but I was thinking 2300 at least. Power, consistency, anticipation, and touch; that's a lot of goodies in his bag!
