Question 1 - 0:38

When I go to club and play with my friends and other players , I’m better than most of them and I can beat them 3-0 or 4-0 . But when I play in a tournament with those players I feel scared even if the other player is a lot weaker than me. Ali.

Question 2 – 2:27

You show how to execute different strokes, and watching and trying to repeat your moves works well for players who are almost as high as you are. I wonder what adjustments should a player do if he is seemingly lower or higher? Roman.

Question 3 – 4:00

You know the backhand block executed with the wrist movement when the bat curves the ball on its side and decreases its spin and speed. I’m wondering if the same kind of stroke can be executed on the forehand side? Evgeny.

Question 4 – 6:20

How to make an effective backhand serve and what about the toss should it be lower or higher? Dario.

Question 5 – 9:40

Hi Alois and Jeff I tend to have a lot of difficulty with looping half long balls with backspin as they go too high over the net and my opponent can just block it or smash it down. How do i achieve a low arc when this happens? Shea.
