Drills Before Tournament - 13:53

Yoan: What do you think are the best drills to practice before a tournament ? Thank you :)

Blocking Spinny Topspin - 15:28

Thijs: I push as short and low as I can. But this Guy is waiting and spins the ball even 1 inch behind the table towards my forehand. I'm ready to block but almost every time the ball goes high/long. Doesn't help if I block early or later. Nothing works.

Plastic Ball Selection - 19:08

Vijay: I have a question on ball selection, Since the balls are now made of plastic, there are many to choose and most have different bounces and speed, further this affects my speed and timing. So is there a standard test we can use to test them?

Thanks - 22:25

Yoan: Hi Alois and Jeff ! I just wanted to thank you for your implication in the sport. Awesome job you guys are doing, keep going we all love you ! :)
