Sirs,

English is not my native language.
So,when I read some table tennis books, I find myself struggling with some terms.
Would you please explain me the following terms;

(1) angle
e.g; angled push, give my opponent an angle to attack

(2) Is extreme forehand and wide forehand are the same?

Angled push = pushing the ball wide, probably away from the opponent.

Giving your opponent an angle to attack = Your ball placement has opened up a part of the table on your side that will be difficult for you to reach should he attack.

Extreme forehand and wide forehand are similar, I feel like "extreme" just means even wider than a wide forehand.

Wide forehand = Near the corner

Extreme forehand = Between the corner and the net (more angled)

Hope I haven't made it more confusing!
