Twiddling or Moving - 11:51

Ilia: Sometimes I play with with long pimples on BH. Suppose that the ball goes to my forehand and I want to chop with LPs because my FH rubber is too fast for chopping. What is the best way to do that: twiddle the bat or take a step and use backhand?

Hungarian Style - 13:22

Il: I watched Istvan Jonyer. Sometimes he hit the ball with topspin without elbow forearm action. He use only straight arm and wrist. Is it true or am I mistaken? I want to know about this Hungarian style.

Reading Spin in the Rally - 16:08

Daniel: How do you know what spin is coming at you so can prepare for it in the middle of a rally? Should you watch the opponent and his or her stroke to anticipate the direction of spin before the shot is even hit? Or should you just watch the ball?

Reverse Backhand Serve - 18:34

Marcin: Why is it that you never see a reverse backhand serve. Means moving the hand (right handed player) from right to left. It's easy to do and gives the opposite sidespin to the traditional backhand serve. I did that kind of serves in my schooldays.
