Good idea :-)

THATS A CRAZY GOOD IDEA! PUT THE MATCH ON THE BLOG!


Minh Nguyen

Minh Nguyen Posted 7 years ago

I think Jeff would win, his strokes are just too smooth and powerful.

Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

No way... come on... you can't be serious!!!

Claus Hamacher

Claus Hamacher Posted 7 years ago

Oh, we are serious....

Hey guys, did you notive that this question is eligible  vor the "video answer vote"?  ;-)

 

Btw, I really don't think it matters who would win this one - but it sure would be great fun to watch!

 

Keep up the good work - both of you. I really like this site! 


Ian Costello

Ian Costello Posted 7 years ago

Alois has good serves. He can trouble Jeff with the serve. Also, I saw Alois in the "Bonus Footage" of the DVD "Receiving Secrets Revealed", U had AWESOME returns!

Ian Costello

Ian Costello Posted 7 years ago

Use your "Ma Lin" high backspin serve!


Chris Roe

Chris Roe Posted 7 years ago

Yes I too would like to see that match so I am going to add my vote to get it up.  Cheers.

Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Who do you think would win? I posted this question on our Facebook page and twice as many people thought Alois would win!?!? I'm hoping for a different response here!

Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Hey come on... this could be deemed as soliciting support Jeff!!!

Minh Nguyen

Minh Nguyen Posted 7 years ago

Well Jeff is a table tennis OLYMPIAN, so of course there's no way that Alois is gonna agree to play and put up a match.

rajesh jha

rajesh jha Posted 7 years ago

I think alois only has the serves as he demonstrates all the service videos while jeff has a more all round game so he had been given the task of demonstrating the strokes in the lessons. After the service and the return i guess Jeff will have an upper hand. He shud win plus he has age factor on his side. His only disadvantage is that he is a little overweight ;). wat say frnds??

Shaji Alavi

Shaji Alavi Posted 7 years ago

Alois has loads and loads of experience, so he would definitely have more control over the ball coz of ball sense he would have developed over the years. Also he would have more strategies than Jeff.
Jeff on the other hand has power with speed and is more quick with the electrifying footwork. Players who can get more quickly to the ball and not miss it are a hard nut to crack.

P.S. I voted for Jeff. :D

Claus Hamacher

Claus Hamacher Posted 7 years ago

I don't know who'd be more likeky to win, but it sure would be fun to watch!

Claus Hamacher

Claus Hamacher Posted 7 years ago

Just noticed I've said that before....4 months ago!

That shows how long this match is overdue...  ;-)

Nikhil Bathla

Nikhil Bathla Posted 7 years ago

I vote for alois. 

LeangHeng IT

LeangHeng IT Posted 7 years ago

You guyes put thise vote into critical moment... either Alois or Jeff, the result will have great impact on PingSkills.

Let's discuss. If Alois has been coaching for long time (quiting tourment), he is just like a boxing shack. If they both always play against each other, they already know clearly what their opponent is capable of so the smart one with good tactics should win. If we look at Jeff, he has got big body disadvantages him for speed...

 Well, headache!!! Anyone wanna add more, go ahead...


Enoch Oppong

Enoch Oppong Posted 7 years ago

Alois will win

Nikhil Bathla

Nikhil Bathla Posted 7 years ago

its a long time when this question was posted now please we want a match.

 


ashley koh jia jhin

ashley koh jia jhin Posted 7 years ago

i think alois will win he is the coach

 

and if he loses then y is he still the coach?!


Rajesh Sawant

Rajesh Sawant Posted 7 years ago

Ashley,

You are completely wrong, its not like all coaches can win all matches, Its totally depends on practice and nature of games which suits your type. Any one can win against coach but its not necessary that winner is really good player than coach. Dont take this personally its truth, what do you guys think?

Thanks,

Rajesh Suhas Sawant 

   


Shripathi ramakrishnan

Shripathi ramakrishnan Posted 7 years ago

impossible to say. as powerful and coordinated as Jeffs strokes are, aloi's is just as ... violent!


Shripathi ramakrishnan

Shripathi ramakrishnan Posted 7 years ago

second thoughts i vote for jeff!!


Galen Corvan- Hughes

Galen Corvan- Hughes Posted 7 years ago

I have to say it would be close. Both of you guys are very good, but I would have to say that Alois has the edge. Maybe Jeff could prove me wrong. What do think?


Ian Costello

Ian Costello Posted 7 years ago

I have N.O idea who is going to win. I can already feel the presure [and Rajesh, Jeff isin't overweighted] :-) P.S: Thanks Claus for this smile :]


Pallav Gurha

Pallav Gurha Posted 7 years ago

Yes, This will really be a great match. Since Alois and Jeff both know each others weakness, it will definitely be a great match.


And the best part is, At the end of the match you guys can add your thinking before each shot, so that will definitely other members to rethink before they play a person who knows all their weaknesses.

And obviously, its just a match, someone has to loose which cannot be averted. So, play it and please upload it, so that everyone else can take a lesson from it.

Lukas Oberbanscheidt

Lukas Oberbanscheidt Posted 6 years ago

Well, I think Alois has good chances with his service-receive play and he can dominate his enemies with that. And Jeff should try to counter the spin at the serve and make an agressive stroke with much spin at the middle of Alois' body. But I think the coach would win.Sorry Jeff! :-)

Julio Torres

Julio Torres Posted 6 years ago

Yes, there is possibilities of Jeff win the match 4-0.....

\r\n

Just a Joke, i think it would be a long match because you\'re great players....

Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 6 years ago

I've got some interesting news. A while back Alois and I were at Ballarat and we played a one set match up to 11 in front of quite a crowd. Luckily we've got the footage recorded on video! I'm going to upload it to YouTube tonight! Once it's up I'll post it on here as a video answer.


AmekunRaiane Rivadeneira

AmekunRaiane Rivadeneira Posted 6 years ago

elizabeth molloy

elizabeth molloy Posted 6 years ago

I think Alois and Jeff are both very skilled, but everyone has their bad days. I think it would be very close.Why not play the best of five on three seperate occasions that way you both have 1in 3 chance of a good day. It also depends on the umpire you get, look at what happened to Ding Ning.???


Steve Lambert

Chris McDade

Chris McDade Posted 6 years ago

Absolutely brilliant defence and sporting style. It doesn't matter who wins the match, entertainment is the keynote. On another note, did you happen to notice that more players are adopting the shake-hand grip in international play as evidenced in the Olympics?

Irregardless, this was very fun and inspirational. I want to play, too. :)

That was brilliant, loads of fun and a lot to learn, even when you're not serious, you both show how seriously good you are! Congratulations on the idea and performance, we want to see more of such events.


Glen Ellis

alois-vs-jeff

Very Entertaining !     Good Idea !  

The 'spit-ball' serve caught me off-guard !    
As much fun as the when  old Sol Schiff  did  finger-spin serves  in Bronkx, N.Y. way back. 

Table Tennis is supposed to be more fun than just bashing the ball !

Here in the States - we have a basketball group called the Harlem Globtrotters and they are fun and really pull out of the audience lots of laughs - Just like I did watching you two do the things you did.  Thanks for the laughs and I'll be sharing this with my friends!

Erik Dupont

If Alois and Jeff for some reason do not want to play a serious match against each other, what about showing us a few real matches where each of you plays against other good players?


Jeff Plumb

Jeff Plumb from PingSkills Posted 6 years ago

Have you seen the video of Alois vs Italy? It's on the About Us page.


Erik Dupont

Erik Dupont Posted 6 years ago

"A portrait of the artist as a young man", very nice indeed. What about some more contemporary videos of both of you?


Rey Gomez

Rey Gomez Posted 6 years ago

Of course, I'll go with Alois! :) I've already seen Alois's match when he was YOUNG. I want to see you guys play with each other, at your current age. 


Nicolas Piaser

Nicolas Piaser Posted 6 years ago

The video of Alois vs Italy   is too short.

It would have been good to see of advantage Alois in his top level when he was younger  ^^  .

Nevertheless it is not so bad.

Paul Gevaert

Why is everyone so gungho about this? Get out there and practice!


Justin O'Toole

Justin O'Toole Posted 6 years ago

Who cares who win really Jeff and Alois are two fantastic gentlemen. To me it does not matter who wins because i know they are both down to earth people, who are very likeable. Could not find a better pair of human beings. They should just play a match for fun though. Maybie even a team event Jeff with one amatuer pingskiller vs Alois also with a amatuer pingskilller.

Each play two singles pro vs pro, amatuer vs amatuer, pro vs amatuer and doubles. It is a crazy idea but i think it would work. It would be great to see Alois and Jeff have a serious practice match.


Justin O'Toole

Justin O'Toole Posted 6 years ago

Don't know who would win Jeff or Alois, id reckon there would only be 2-4 points in the match at the end and it would go all the way. My idea of a team event one pingskiller with Alois and one with Jeff to me sounds good maybie even crazy. It is only an idea though other people might have an ideas as well. This is if Jeff and Alois do have a match. 


Jimmy Sanchez

This was a good match and it proves jeff is better than alois

oh! ha ha ha

 


Enrique Gomez

Enrique Gomez Posted 5 years ago

I notice that Alois lower his head when receiving and returns to a normal stance as soon as Jeff's ball leaves his racket. What is the purpose of this?


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 5 years ago

Start to move to position to return the ball.


pratik bokil

pratik bokil Posted 5 years ago

the match between u and jeff was the best and the funniest match i have ever seen

Enrique Gomez

Enrique Gomez Posted 5 years ago

I though you were lowering your head and your torso so you can read better the contact of the ball with Jeff's paddle, otherwise it is very hard to move  into the proper position to return the ball since your upper body is inclined toward the table, you are out of balance and your feet cannot accommodate well to displace your body in case the ball is coming to you or far from you

According to ancient druid scrolls, it speaks of a serious match between Alois and Jeff and if this prophecy comes to be, then on the 3rd point of the 3rd game the planets will align and destroy our known universe.
