These are starting tomorrow and we discuss the format and the main athletes who will by vying for a spot in Rio.
Who is your favourite European Mens and womens player?
What do you serve at match point?
Ali: I miss panda where is he????
Viktor: How do I attack a long sidespin serve that goes straight in the middle? It's pretty fast and I can't get in any position for the topspin. How can I attack effectively? I don't have the reflexes to move my feet and make the stroke in time, help :)
Viktor: I watched Waldner's matches in his prime, he had great speed, power, control and etc. I think I agree about what you said before that he could play against modern players if he was in their era. I think Waldner even in his prime would have a bit of trouble.
Viktor: When is the next World Tour?
Viktor: Do you think you can switch your power of practice skills? Jeff trying spin catcher and Alois trying table tapper in 30 days?
Johan: Could you please clarify the doubles rules? I've understood that you serve against different players every set. What determines who serves first in the sets after the first one? Do you change the serving order in the deciding set?
John: I would like to know why serving in doubles is so much less dynamic than in singles. So what is the reason for using a much weaker and easy to read serve when they can comfortably use their normal serves to win the point.
Vishnu: I used to play 5hrs a day (morning and evening) and I play basic skills of table tennis quite nicely, but if I take an interval for more than two days, I find it difficult to play even the basics. It takes me weeks to regain my game.
