Question 4 - 8:10

How do you practice to not miss shots in sessions an how to lower your fear when playing in tournaments and how to play backhands like the pros? Abdul

Question 5 - 10:34

Tam: Hi Alois, I'm left handed and I'm having trouble with hitting wide shots is there a way I could improve this?

Question 6 - 12:26

Ilia: I use the pendulum and the reverse pendulum services in my play. I'm also a very forehand oriented player. My rivals often return my services with backspin to my backhand to force me to pivot. How can I "enforce" the service return to my forehand? 

Question 7 - 14:19

Abdullah: Is there a certain technique to multiball? My brother and I have tried it, but it ends up making a very awkward arc could you help us?

Question 8 - 16:01

Dakota: I have been thinking of looking for more control in my game. Should I simply drop my thickness from MAX down to maybe 1.8 and keep using Vega Pro or try a different slower rubber that has better control, but use MAX to retain spin? 

Question 9 - 17:43
