I have recently asked you a question about hand wrist, and I am expecting your video response. The reason why I did it is because I saw several players using the wrist to generate spin. And they get away with it. Can you tell me how is it possible? I have heard from a friend that this kind of shot is an old school. As far as I could see the mechanism of that movement, it seems that they go with the racket beneath the ball, and then flip it on the top generating spin. My question is, how can they do that? And also, maybe you could tell us more about old techniques, and are they applicable in the modern era of table tennis. See ya
The wristy shot is a risky shot. By using your arm more you get better control of the movement and the movement will be more consistent therefore your stroke will be more consistent.
I don't know that it is necessarily old school, perhaps when the loop was first invented it was much more of a wrist action. The ball was moving a lot slower in those days as well.
I think in general the game has become faster and so the strokes have needed to become more compact. Players today are so much better at making the topspin to topspin ball as well.
What other changes do others think have come into the game?
