Who is the best player you have played?

Tracking for Forehand - 4:40

Dieudo: do you think keeping track of the ball with my eyes all the way as it comes to my side of the table is necessary when playing a forehand? Sometimes I feel like I should have focused more on the ball because it slips right next to my racquet.

Pace of Serve for Maximum Effect - 6:49

Daniel: How can I maximize the effects of spin while serving (especially sidespin)? Getting the right contact and brushing motion is important as I realized but if I wish to maximize sidespin on the serve will the velocity of the ball be important as well?

Consistency - 10:18

Oscar: What's the meaning of consistency? Is the word for continuous stokes?

When to Move up Drills - 11:34

Mark: Starting to do some drilling sessions with a practice partner, but we're still at the point where our placement is a bit sloppy and the ball falls out of play fairly often. Is it worthwhile to add in some mixed drills yet?
