Just curious to know, why all the players talk to themselves so much in table tennis? this is very very unique and you know in most of the sports like cricket, tennis etc. player murmur, but in TT players talk and scream at themselves. i am a very quiet person, dont know why and when i started doing this too. and the intention was not to copy anyone, it just came from within.
i have heard players and top seeded players in india, saying things like 'what are you going', 'come on fight', 'get it right', 'hang in there', 'hit that ball', ' watch the ball'.
That is an interesting question. I think it is something that comes from the close intimacy of the players to each other. It doesn't happen with everyone. I don't think it is necessarily a good thing for everyone. In fact it can be detrimental to some players.
