The ball. Currently too heavy.

I miss old celluloid 38 mm ball that literally curving and dancing in the air.

You swat the ball and it swerve dangerously.

I propose that the ball should be make lighter so it affected by atmosphere more, but with internal epi-truss / episkeleton just beneath the ball skin so it not easily broken.

I want the ball to be crazier.

and also, abolish the minimum friction rule to widen the player diversity. :)

Thank you

the absolute worst thing about table tennis?..... why ban some LPs? why a new plastic ball? why have unenforceable TT rules?
many ppl have stopped playing because of all this ... why not invest in new devices that catch many cunning players red handed?
what are the real interests of the ITTF???.....

So much cheating,...

As a player, I dislike deceptive serves that I can't read. :devil:

As a spectator, sometimes I wish other countries could compete with China much better, so there's more suspense when it really matters (Olympics/WTTC).

Although being Chinese, I also don't like when they lose even a game. :lol: It's some identity/projection of self thing. I used to not care when I didn't actively play

Everything. I probably chose the wrong sport, though...

There's always stuff to improve!
