Super-reliable forehand loop technique

Nice video here from Tom Lodziak in which coach Emma Harradine demonstrates a forehand loop (against backspin) that just looks so spinny, safe and reliable.

I’ve always liked the idea of this shot – the archetypal third ball in the rally – being like a well-oiled machine, but have never quite nailed it. So I’m gonna study this!

Pendulum Sidespin Serve

Great video (in German with subtitles) which shows and tells the most important elements of this serve, namely:

  1. Brush the ball sideways extremely fast;
  2. Swing your wrist about 90° extremely fast when touching the ball; and
  3. The third bounce should be close to the side-edge of the table so that the opponent cannot easily attack and your spin has the strongest effect.
