Speaking of michael maze, how about TIMO BOLL, what do you think of his techniques?
I love Timo Boll's style. His forehand is something special.

hey coach, i find my backhand topspin a little bit weird, because when i hit it and it lands on my opponents side of the table , it tends to be curling away facing left, why is that?
p.s , i find difficult to mimic timo's serve and forehand, is there something special about his technique?
If the ball is curving it will be that your bat isn't flat when you are contacting the ball. Focus on the tip of your bat and adjust it both up and down and see if you can get the ball going straight. It will mean you are getting better topspin on the ball.
Trying to copy Timo's play is difficult. Just keep watching him and see if you can get it right.
is it possible to hit a side spin flick from a long distance?
oh, is Australia gonna be in the 2012 table tennis Olympics?
is donic a good brand?
p.s, thanks for answering my questions, your the best ever.....
BY THE WAY, i've downloaded all of your videos available in YouTube in my phone , and when i'm in doubt in my hitting i directly go to my phone and take advice's in order for me to perform well.... thanks alotttt,
your the best
yah, i guesssss, i've run out of questions, do you know about his backhand loop?
I enjoy watching Timo play and there's a wealth of lessons from his style for any table tennis enthusiast. First of all, while there are some world class players who beat you with their blazing footwork, Timo beats you with his balance (of course, all world class players have great balanace, but I notice this particularly with Timo). Second, I admire his backhand. To me it's like on the other end of the spectrum from, say, Kreanga's. He doesn't belt the ball with his whole body like Kreanga does. It's a very compact motion with mostly wrist action. It's not the most fierce backhand in table tennis but he gets great spin with it and still generates power on the counter attack. And of course, his serves are pretty wicked!
When does the Olympics start, coach?
And why doess the players have limits in participating?
The Olympics run from the 27th July to 12th August. Table Tennis is one of the sports that runs fro most of the games.
The qualification criteria tries to allow a wider variety of countries and regions to be involved. It is an elite event so they can't let everyone who want to play in it but they try to include players from all over the world.
Oh, that is a good news for other countries except China, hahahahaha,
We all know that they are power house of table tennis... well, for me .....
does this mean that, no the same team member that will be going to the finals?
Well that happened in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.....
Hey coach, is Timo's bat specially made for him?
And why does other players have thesame bat as Timo?
His backhand loop looks awkward,, isnt it?
Timo's bat is made for him. I guess other players like having the same equipment as champions.
I like his backhand style. It certainly works for him.
