Nice blog you have there v100.

I read page 1 and watch the videos, skipped to page 7 to see your progress since 2018. Had to go back to page 6 and I would say you have an impressive control of your pips.

I would suggest for you to be more attack oriented on the forehand especially when countering. But that is just an opinion. Enjoy the game and I'll be checking on your progress. Keep spinning or I would rather say, keep killing those spin!

Thanks Red_lion :party: :*:
Yeah, being more aggressive on the FH is something that a lot of people have been suggesting me for quite some time. It's one of the directions of my game that I'm currently working on :topspin: . Or at least trying to work on :lol:

Hi, Red_lion,
really no new videos. I film myself, watch, sometimes cut some points/shots and remove the files from the disk. So I'll add a small video with a couple of nice points/shots to the end of the entry.

blog entry:
I've been playing (not training) about 3-5 times a week for the last 2-3 months + 2 times a week I go to the gym. Currently I'm in very good shape in terms of TT :party: The problem is that we don't have a lot of clubs in our city (like, 1 club, 1 TT school and a couple of halls that are used mainly by non-players). Overall the TT community in our city is weak. Currently there's nobody who can beat my from the regulars in my club and that's a problem for me, cause it's hard to progress this way. I've won like 11 from the last 12 weekly tournaments and the last 2 monthly tournaments. So, obviously the form is good but the problem is there too :( .
Currently I play much more aggressive than before, twiddle a lot, try to stay positive and work on my attacking play against everybody.
Found a couple of stronger guys that play in the space of the TT school (cause they have connections) and played a couple of times with them. I hope I'll be able to continue playing with them cause I need to play against stronger opponents for better progress.
Equipment: everything's great. P4 + Battle 2 work wonders for me
Most actively I'm currently using(working on) the FH flick with the pips (After a twiddle, of course. The first point of the video can be an example of that) to set up the point. It works super well with a short spinny side-under serve when your opponents tries to leave it short. When you do this flick with the pips after that he gets a very weird ball and, when placed to his middle, you have a very good chance for a finishing attack after his shot.
Also the thing that Red_Lion mentioned in his previous comment - more FH countering - this I'm working on too.
Overall - working on the aggressive game that consist of a timed twiddle, good placement with the pips and a good finisher (either BH or FH).
Here's a short video of a couple of points or shots that I liked from my recent games (and one point from a training session - just love the Battle 2 for it's counterlooping ability).

Overall nice improvement in your game! I am glad you are sticking with the same LP. That is the only way to learn all of its tricks. Even Gionis when asked why he still plays with FL2 (when most choppers switched after ball changes) he said that he knows all its tricks and limits which takes years to get used to and master.

Not so sure about the improvement. I would say that it's only relative to my club. I feel like I need to play against better players to really feel a step up in my game. My current shot selection is not the best against better opponents - too much risks and I'm often not prepared for some returns (cause usually these balls don't return when I play against my club mates).

Thanks, notfound123.
Yep - sticking to my current equipment definitely helps. I just feel confident in some shots cause I know what can be done with my combo and if it's a miss or something - I know that the error is on me (poor technique or not the right shot selected).
P4 seems very versatile and I'm still only exploring it's potential (so much to learn.. And then to implement it into the game plan :o ;) ).

I'll just leave this here.
This guy has a nice channel where he analyzes his matches and now he started filming great videos about some specific things in TT.
Currently there are 3 parts, here's the first one:

The second is about BH and the third is about serve receive.
My opinion is that these videos are superb and really contain things that you won't find.. So check them out on his channel :)

So here's my most recent video.
The match took place on 16th of October. It was the final of a Thursday League.
The boy against me doesn't come often to our club so we were not very familiar with each other in terms of what to expect.
I started the match very badly - like a ton of misses and mistimed balls. I think I was not ready for the pace of the game (cause my previous matches were against much slower opponents and this boy plays faster). Overall I played well, there's a lot of nice points in the match. The first game is the only one that is not very watchable :)
Still the same problems - not ready for the ball to come back sometimes, choosing very risky shots.. Like always :)
