Hello Alois. I wanted to ask 2 questions:

1) Sometimes I get exhausted by the fact that I have to still learn a lot in table tennis. I stop playing table tennis for sometime thinking that I might never be able to learn all the techniques and strokes required to become a professional player. How to overcome this feeling?

2) Can I improve my game by playing with a partner who has the level of game almost similar to me, or is it necessary to have someone who is better than you to improve. Me and my partner use your videos as our guide and coach.

Hi Muhammad,

Try to remember that the improvement is a journey.  There will be a lot of ups and down during that time.  The key is to persevere consistently over a period of time and just see where you can get to.  Even the top players have their times when they feel like giving up but the reason that they have become so good is that they kept going through those periods.

You can definitely improve playing with a player the same level.  In fact even if the player is weaker than you you can still improve your game.  It is more about structuring your training to allow you to practice the things you want to work on and then being consistent with your training.

Ups and downs during training can be brutal, especially when you stretch yourself to the limits during the practice. But it pays off in the long run.
