Spinny Forehand Flick - 8:13 

Ilia: In your forehand flick tutorial, you show that the contact for it is flat, like a mini smash. I saw another tutorial, where a guy showed how to use wrist to create topspin on this flick. So what do you think about this spinny forehand flick?

Ma Long and Fan Zhendong - 10:38

Viktor: I watch the World Grand Tour recently and in my opinion Ma Long vs Fan Zhendong was the best one. Ma Long still the best currently but Fan will be the future World Champion I think. He's talented and skilled. He's only 18 so he can be way better.
