Ma Long Loops the ball amazingly fast. Just watch some of his matches on "youtube"

When it comes to loop drives, I have seen some pretty crazy stuff coming from Wang Liqin and Kalinkos Kreanga.  I say Ma Long is just an extremely good player that actually has a more balanced (speed/spin) loop, rather than an all out kill drive.  Still, the top players all have some pretty fast loops.

ma lin and ryu seung min definitely has the best loops in the world. they're famous for their forehand

Ji-Soo Woo

That's a tough question.  All the world-class players have pretty powerful and fast topspin loops.  Having said that, I agree about Ma Long.  He has a very powerful loop but it's a potent mix of spin and speed and not necessarily blistering speed.

Ryu Seung Min (especially in the early days before the speed glue ban) had arguably the most dangerous forehand in table tennis and was probably as fast as anyone I've seen.

Ma Lin's forehand attack off the short ball is also blisteringly fast.

Personally, from the little I've seen of him play, I was also really impressed by Segun Toriola's attacking forehand.

MA LONG YOUVE GOTTT TO SEE HIS LOOPS!!!!!VERY FAST...

Ji-Soo Woo

Ji-Soo Woo Posted 11 years ago

I didn't vote for Ma Long to have the fastest loop but, of all the professional players, if I could steal the forehand of anyone, it would probably be Ma Long.  I just love his smooth flowing motion and large swing.  That's definitely the stroke I try to emulate.

While it's hard for me to say who has the fastest loop, I can think of a few prominent examples of players who definitely DON'T have the fastest loop.  Two that come to mind are Timo Boll and Jun Mizutani.  Both are fantastic players and I love watching them play, but their forehand seem to me to be more spin and control rather than pace.


rahul anil

rahul anil Posted 11 years ago

 i agree that Timo boll is all spin and no pace

Hari Krishnan

Hari Krishnan Posted 11 years ago

I feel the smashes of liu guoliang were very fast

Hari Krishnan

Hari Krishnan Posted 11 years ago

Presently i feel that the loops of xu xin is the fastest!!!

rahul anil

rahul anil Posted 11 years ago

after beating timo boll he has the fastest smash

Harikrishnan U

Harikrishnan U Posted 11 years ago

Does any body know the approximate speed of ma long's loops and smashes and even ma lin's, ryu seung min and xu xin if you can.just want to compare the speeds of ma long,ma lin,ryu seung min and xu xin.

Ma Lin's attack is monsterous. Best of all time and nightmare for every defender

andrew brand

andrew brand Posted 11 years ago

Although mainly a defender Joo Se Hyuk has an awesome forehand loop which usually wins the point on the first attack.

Hard question huh there are many great players out there Jun Muzatani, Vladimir Samsonov, Michael Maze, Ma long and many others can't decide. I just love watching them. I have seen Simon Gerada do some amazing crazy spins too he is a great Aussie player. Too hard to decide too many good players out there. 


Oliver

Oliver Posted 9 years ago

okay i think this question is quite hard to answer. who knows? maybe there is a weightlifter who plays amateur and perhaps he hits the ball faster than all the world champions?


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 9 years ago

I don't think pure strength that determines how fast you can hit a ball.  A lot more is in the technique and timing.


Justin O'Toole

Justin O'Toole Posted 9 years ago

Alois you have made a good point it is not pure strenght that makes a fast hard hit winner. Merv Crowley told me about 8-9 years ago the same thing, he said just move your wrist and swing faster. He said timing and technique was the key. Merv said he learnt this when he did his coahing course.


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 9 years ago

Glad we are on the same track.


Oliver

Oliver Posted 9 years ago

True...but there are millions of players around the world and maybe one or two are strong and have good technique, but we never heard of them. Can that happen?


Oliver

Oliver Posted 9 years ago

I mean for example Simon Gerada has a pretty good forehand, and perhaps nearly as good as Ma Long but I am pretty sure there are many more people who know about Ma Long than Simon Gerada.


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 9 years ago

Maybe...

If anyone out there thinks this is you, or someone you know, take a video of your forehand and send us a link...


Justin O'Toole

Justin O'Toole Posted 9 years ago

Yes Simon has a fantastic loop on his forehand but his backhand is very good too. Simon believes in himself and trusts his own ability, that goes a long way to being a good player. But most of all Simon Gerda is a really nice person and he has the perfect attitude for a sport like table tennis.


Oliver

Oliver Posted 9 years ago

Okay... According to Wang Tao, Wang Hao has the best forehand in the chinese team. 


Mohammad Hassan

Mohammad Hassan Posted 9 years ago

I say scalger you can't even see his hand when he plays


Justin O'Toole

Justin O'Toole Posted 9 years ago

Hard to say Ovtcharov has a good fast loop. Jun Muzitani ? Werner Schlager? Timo Boll? Jian jike. There are too many to mention as there are a lot of fantastic players out there.


Nathan S

Nathan S Posted 9 years ago

Zhang jike and ma long have good loops

Nicolas Matthew

Nicolas Matthew Posted 6 years ago

Ryu Seung Min. In the 2004 olympic his forehand loop was more than fast, including in the final against wang hao. Incredible pace.


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 6 years ago

Sounds like yo might be a Ryu Seung Min fan.  I saw that final and he was incredible both against Waldner and in the final against Wang Hao.


D K

D K Posted 6 years ago

My opinion:

 

forehand:

Ryu Seung Min
Ma Lin

backhand:
Jorgen Persson
Schlager Werner


Nicolas Matthew

Nicolas Matthew Posted 6 years ago

Personally I think Kreanga's backhand loop is very fast


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 6 years ago

It certainly is Nicolas...
