There is a crazy point at 4:35 of this video between Waldner and Timo
This is one of those freaky points that you only see from the "Mozart of Table Tennis"...but what exactly is he doing/thinking in this point?
"If I hit the ball here, I expect Timo to hit the ball there. Now if I stand up from my crouch and walk casually to the scorer's table mid-point and at exactly this pace, I should be at exactly the right place at the right time to hit a winner casually as I go by..."
I love the point.
Who ever knows how Waldner thinks. I think in this case he had given up the point seeing Boll getting to the ball easily he thought "this is the most likely place that the ball is going to come to and let's hope that is where the ball comes".
With years of experience sometimes you just start to work out quite naturally where the ball is coming.
