Hi Alois and Jeff,
Really love your website, you guys are so gifted and kind, and do seem to know everything about table tennis.
My question is, I have monocular vision, used to play as a kid, now after many years, seriously picked table tennis up a year ago and started practicing a lot, going to the local table tennis club, watching your website, even bought a robot to practice with. Problem is, people who started with me at my level have all progressed well and now handily beat me. What I want is a big favor. if one of you can close one eye- tape one eye and tell how much difficult is it to play with one eye. And tell me the answer whether am I ever going to get really better or will I always struggle?
Sam- not my real name
It will be more difficult with monocular vision as depth perception will be hampered. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t improve. It just means it will take more time and effort.
Keep working hard and see where you can get to. Don’t worry about where others get to, focus purely on your own progress. You will have other attributes that other players don’t have such as determination that will benefit you.
