Yes, visualizing correctly can be taught and learned. A coach can conduct an audio session or make recordings to guide students. It can be done immediately before match or even between sets. If a coach chooses his/her words well, they can conduct a session without the student even knowing it's happening.

Lots of people are great at visualizing negative outcomes, but not so good at positive visualization.

Visualizing positive outcomes can result in better physical responses and build confidence. It can help you to win close matches. I will cover all this in part 96 of LTT...maybe.

I started with visualization recently after reading the 10-minute-toughness-guide (just google) and Dora Kurimay's Get your Gameface on.

My visualization topics are determined by positive experiences during training and competition. I shortly write them down in a log book (excel file).
I visualize these on the day of training and competition.

It's absolutely true that you need to learn this visualization skill.
In the beginning you're easily distracted, so it helps to read them out loudly and, as adviced in above referred guide, just stop the visualization if it goes"wrong", rewind back, and start over again.
In time these internal movies play back much easier and also start to pop-up in a positive way during game play.

I can strongly recommend this mental skill to everybody.

I can wait until LTT 96. I loved Kurimay's GYGFO, but I don't do the routine in practice or matches, so it was just a good read with no impact.

I'm not sure how much time her routine adds to a match, maybe five minutes. But with people waiting or at a long round-robin tournament people will get frustrated if you play at a slow (completely legal) pace. I guess I need to visualize myself not giving a damn if my opponent is impatient.

Nice.

You need that 5 minutes. You use your forehand more than I do and I need that 5 minutes.

A lot of that time is normally used as well, but then with a kind of "blank" state-of-mind. Either quiet or noisy, angry or happy but with no real intention to positively influence your mental condition.

Now with the Gameface (4R) approach, you turn this "empty" preparation time into a valuable contribution to your game.

Watch NextLevel battling with forehand cross footwork. He gets off to a slow start and then owns it by the end.

We're talking about footwork. Footwork?

It's not even a real match - it's shadow and robot practice.

Footwork??? Footwork????

Let me street cred it up...

Practice? You talking 'BOUT Practice! C'Mon, get Ur head on straight, dog. We're talkin' 'bout PRACTICE. I don't need to do all that noise... it's PRACTICE... I'm talkin' 'bout PRACTICE, bro. I show up at game time man.

On a slightly more serious note, one of the things I appreciated yesterday that with more footwork drilling, my timing for moving towards the ball would be different. What do I mean?

I am realizing that moving towards the ball when it is hit is not necessarily a good thing! It's often better to move to a ball further away from you when you have an idea of where it will land. If you look at the cross step that I am executing, it's a better quality shot in some instances than the shot I would get if I didn't have to move to the ball as my body's momentum raises the quality of the result.

Here's a video I made some time ago. I thought there was a lack of good info on how to play a forehand from the backhand side, so I gave it my best shot.

Another excellent video. Brett, it seems as if your right leg (first step) gets in to position a tick before your back swing is set leading me to believe your right leg should be in position just prior to the ball bouncing on your side of the table. Am I seeing this correctly?

Yes, that's correct. I slowed Ma Lin down and it was the same with him too.

Don't overthink it though...just start the backswing very early.
