  1. I still don't understand how reverse pendulum serves would be returned to my backhand side. The right side spin would put it on my forehead side, I would think. 🤔

  2. Hi Coach EmRatThich,
    Recently, i watched Fan Zhendong vs Liam Pitchforld match, World Team Cup In the first set, FZD lost. From the second game, he switched to Reverse Pendulum Serves, instead of the Pendulum Serves. And, he could crack Liam down. I think, because of Liam's extraordinary Backhand, Fan changed to the Plan B. He played with the Serve and Attack Plan B(Reverse Pendulum Serves). Now, the question is, how many Serve and Attack Plans should a player have? I have only Plan A (Pendulum Serves and Attacks), but I am looking forward for the Plan B, like FZD, after watching the match. I do know that there may never be too many Serves and Attack Plans, which may create a mess, in a given situation and dilemma may cover the mind. I never have seen a player who does variety of serves and win, because of it, too.
    So, i think you are the coach, who can give proper guidance to all of us. If possible, please make a video, too.
    Thanks a lot, Sir!

  3. Greetings friend and good job. I would like to know more about simple game strategies and with higher% chance of winning a point

  4. Rubbish. Here is Ma Long vs Fan Zhendong .. Ma Long didnt serve to FZD backhand. He served everywhere. And FZD retured ALL balls to Ma King's backhand. I wonder why he didnt know that Ma Long wants to "Pivot" as you slreay know. You may teach FZD nect time ..

  5. Hello this is Ketan Kunkalikar… Just as you said that explosiveness is essential for attack, and also that a player should hold his bat loose before attacking. But i want you to clarify how a chinese pen holder should explode… I've tried myself, but found it hard….

  6. My spin variations are really not creative. I need help with to make a good serve. I play with forehand that's why I use the pendulum serve. I do like 60% short sideunder spin 20% underspin. And rest long. I don't know how to make my opponent to do a good position for me or even win the point direct of the spin. All my teammates are starting to just win all the balls. Can you come a statistic of serve for me please. You said that forehand dominant player should not serve reverse pendulum, so I can't trick with the sidespin even that would be hard but worth training. I am also wanting to know how to play with your real skills in matches. Or make a ping Sunday about the mental skills. I am a hard-training player that just needs those extra touches. I even just serve in school without​ playing with somebody. Thank you! What is also better in short serves. More spin and two bounces or less spin and 3+ bounces. Thanks for making these videos.

  7. Ma Long serves always with his forehand to the middle of the tabel to let his opponent think about the return…
