After watching tennis for so long....

I have such a greater appreciation for the sport of table tennis.



Look at the spins that these guys come up with to control the ball!! It's insane...

Playing with spin...someone needs to send this to all of the WTA coaches. "OMG! Adding spin can keep a ball in play! Maybe my player will hit less than 30 UE per match!"

Table Tennis is a great sport ! Underestimated by many silly people thinking it's not a real sport unfortunately

They should look at this amazing video.

Re: After watching tennis for so long....

Hereīs one crazy shot from the Swedish league. Itīs probably more luck than actual skill, but itīs still one of the greatest shots ever.
