I have too many blades and also pf4 032. the problem with this rubber is handling.yea its on of the best quality blade and very solid with very high sweet spot, but i can not maneuver fast from back hand to forehand and for a fast player specially short pips attack got very limited , i have put RITC 729 755-2 medium long pips on back hand and LKT pro LT 2.0 mm its very good now.

He isn't talking about breathing during hits...he says making sure he breathes right between points. Doing this ensure your oxygen level doesn't drop, which would affect body performance.

I played Sharad in Darwin last year..

Things I remember: Spin variation and trickiness from my serves amounted to nothing!
Anything slightly higher than the net was punished with unpredictable angles!
He was incredibly focused and in the zone (not that he needed to be for me! :rofl: )

Well I sure hope he breaths correctly in between points, something I hope comes naturally :P. Interesting video because even though I know he's a top level player but it doesn't show up there. Just shows he must have a lot of deception.

I agree.. he's a class act and great to watch. His touch and anticipation is amazing, as is the ease he hits with pace. :o

Haggisv, in another thread I provided strong evidence that it's a Mazunov and you said "I'll ask him next time I see him"!

Kuk, above, might have read my post but it wasn't authoritative; ask him for us! :-)

I posted about him in another thread... there must be another Sharad thread. :oops:
I believe has was using an old TSP blade, and his rubbers were TSP Spectol (BH) and Xiom Zava (FH) with fairly thick sponges.

Sharad's blade is a 5 ply wood - tibhar samsonov premium contact.

His short game is excellent and attacks as soon as possible with compact and fast arm movements. He moves the ball around a lot and keeps his opponent off balance.

Playing against the fast no-spin ball is difficult, especially if countering close to the table. Take a couple of steps back and the pace comes of the ball and they are easier to loop/attack - if you get that far into the rally that is :lol:

If the blade he's using here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Dx_Vg1empM (2013) is one of those, I'll eat my shorts.
Face shape, sound, handle colors and end tag, while not conclusively still a Mazunov, is not one of those.

So at this late stage - in the last year - he has switched to a 5.9mm thick off-? Have any video?

You the man! I knew you could do it! Thank you!

I still think it was a Mazunov three years ago, but MMaze is close enough. :)

Interesting, he has changed to a quicker blade then. I was on Sharad's team last year, and he was using the tibhar blade.
