Talent is over rated. The more important thing is how many hours you spend on the table in quality practice.
You can take a look at our PingPod on the Relative Age Effect for some interesting discussion on the topic of talent.
Malcolm Gladwell in his book, Outliers talks also about the 10,000 hour rule. He says it takes 10,000 hours of practice to really master something. This is especially true in a sport like Table Tennis that has such a high degree of motor skills involved.
