Injuries and the New Plastic Ball - 7:40

Mike: Hi guys! :) I'm beginning to hear more about injuries that may have been caused with the plastic ball, because rallies are longer and there is a higher demand on power rather then tactical finesse. What do you guys think, and should training be adjusted?

Body Imbalance - 9:36

Binder: Hi Alois, playing table tennis on a regular basis will surely result in a body imbalance because of using one side more than the other. Do you think this might cause injuries long term?

Long or Short Forehands - 11:33

Il: Why do some professional players play with longer movement for forehand topspin and other - shorter? Which are the advantages with longer movements?
