Playing on Auto Pilot - 5:41

Dieter: Hi guys. Today I read a few mental tips. The author said NOT to think about technique during a match, 'cause it will make your game slow. A club mate told me the same. I always thought you had to consciously bring what you've learnt to match situations.

Pressure on Myself - 9:40

Yoan: Hi Alois ! I recently noticed that I am not playing as well as I could because I put a lot of pressure on myself. How can I stop putting pressure on myself ? Thank you!

Slow Spinny Backhand Loop - 11:12

Long: I want to make a backhand loop, but normal loop is not enough because it cannot be as strong as the forehand, so I want to increase the spin. So how to make a slow spinny loop or get more spin on the backhand loop?

Using the Forearm - 13:52

Johnny: Hey. Today while I was playing, an experienced player watched me play and told me to use my forearm/elbow, and not to use my whole arm/shoulder. I'm just a bit confused as I've been taught to use my whole arm. Thanks.

Samsonov's Serve - 15:59

Lukas: Lately I've been watching a lot of Samsonov matches, and I just don't understand the contact on his serve. When he serves, he doesn't really loosen up his grip too much, but he still get's a crazy amount of sidespin. How?
