Did any of you, Alois or Jeff, ever play Chiang Peng Lung from Taipei?

Hi Eduardo,

I haven't but I do believe he was coached by Zhou Lansun who coached us in Australia as well.

Thanks Alois, as always, a prompt answer to all questions! I'll check later on Mr. Lansun. Probably the guy w/ a sedated expression on his face. Now, the follow through question: As a coach, how would you describe his forehand? I mean it seems a very unorthodox f/h for a world class player.

Hi Eduardo,

I think his forehand is quite normal.  What do you feel is unorthodox about it?

Hello, Alois. It's like he was so focused on his blocking game (outstanding, by the way) on his backhand that sometimes he kept blocking with his forehand. Or sort of. I mean, his movements were so fast and sudden, that he could hit winners from balls very close to his body. I saw that in a match w/. Primorac. He had (I don't know if he's still playing), in my opinion a very efficient  footwork compared w/ other penholders. "Normally" a penholder would move away from the ball fast in order to use a full arm length. He didn't need that. I was hoping you could lead me into some basics for my own game. I'll try to find a video that shows that more clear.

He did play a lot of backhands.  I think he still preferred to play his forehand though.

I guess he was efficient with his movement.  He didn't really pivot that far away from the table and would sometimes sway his body a bit more to get position with his arm.
