I think it's genetic in the sense that not all bodies will endure the extremely hard physical training it takes to become a pro. It's not uncommon with extremely talented athletes that are forced to give up their careers quite early due to continuous injuries. Training 2+ times per day 7 days a week is not a breeze. Not everyone has a body built for this kind of stress.

But THAT is not what's stopping us from become pros... :lol: What's stopping us is the inability to win points, games and matches against players who aren't anywhere near that level.

True and I would argue that it has do to with starting with the sport way too late. TT is quite similar to gymnastic in the sense that’s it got a lot to do with feet and hand coordination. Extremely hard to learn if you’re older than 9 and close to impossible if you’ve entered your teens.

True to a point... but even with hand-chosen youngsters who get intensive training only a vanishingly small percentage actually grow up good enough to make money at the sport. Ask the Chinese. I suppose this WOULD be the way to generate a huge number of really good players and totally dominate the sport as a nation, but that's a different issue.. :lol:
