Table Tennis, the best/craziest point ever, must see

I used to follow table tennis when I was younger. However, this point is absolutely out of this world. The craziest point I've ever seen in my life. unbelievable.

thanks Alex, are these guys in an exhibition? don't understand table tennis that much but they kind of looked like fooling around and not serious? The guy in orange shirt's retrieval skills look crazy

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

why don't you post some videos? I'd love to see more. I'm really getting more interested in this sport. Here, in Canada nowadays, they never show any table tennis on TV (not that I can recall).

Re: Table Tennis, the best/craziest point ever, must see

Waldner is widely regarded as the greatest table tennis player of all time. I was a little kid when he was at his prime so can't really judge, but I'm not sure he was in fact the greatest. Seems to me like there were a lot of Asians champions, but calling one of them the GOAT wouldn't be as exciting as calling Waldner that.

Right now the Chinese have total control over the sport. The only European guy that challenges them is Timo Boll (Germany), but he is declining. In terms of popularity Boll is almost like Federer, by far the most loved player. One of the reasons is that Chinese players kinda lack personality so there aren't many devoted fans outside China.
Anyways, the most popular Chinese guy right now is Ma Long. He is currently the world #3, but rankings in TT can be way more misleading than in tennis, and he is actually the strongest player in the world by a fair margin.

Another great video:

So I guess you're on the bandwagon of Ma Long then Yonithan?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
