Is it me, or is Wang Hao's finishing position for his backhand ...off? He loops the ball in a 45 degree angle but ends with his bat almost 90 degrees. Why is this?

Hi Romeo,

This is just his little difference with the shot.  He straightens out his bat at the end with the Reverse Penhold Backhand.  He probably wants to get into a neutral position a little quicker.

That makes sense. I can't seem to get the ball to land on the other side of the table if I use his technique. Do you think I should copy Wang Hao?

Allow your wrist to flow through.  Wang Hao had his own unique style.
