i just downloaded these clips and i have to say that this is some of the worst table tennis i have ever seen in my life!

laura doesnt even try to disguise her serves and sometimes even just serves a backhand topspin?! how did she get sponsored by butterfly?! thats abloody joke... how are they rated 2000+ or are there different ratings for women?!?

anyway, laura couldnt even loop 2 chops in a row, if this is how u guys play i would be very worried because second division players here can beat these people easily.

sorry for the post , but i felt it was necessary because i had to express my emotions towards low level of table tennis!

well........ it makes sense to serve backhand topspin agaisnt a chopper, was larua ot able to loop 2 chops in a row the entire match? I highly doubt that. There might not be a need to disguise serves to long pips because when I play long pips, I dont disgiuse my serves.

The purpose of disguising your serve is to force the opponent to use the long pips to receive. And then, you can shove the ball down the opponent's throat with a loop-kill. Do you ever see Joo Se Hyuk using his long pips to push?

I saw Laura play recently at North American Table Tennis Championship in Montreal, Canada. She played well. There were higher rated and better playes as expected. But she has a attacking play. The videos you saw are outdated for one and she is young player quickly improving.

Not all players get to train in best place with Chinese or other good coaches and quickly improve. She has worked her way up in her club and is doing reasonably well.

yeah but shes still rated at 2000, and alink : there is no suprise in her serve, when i play long pip players i do my full service motion thats the same for all my serves then at the last second i will hit it more than spin to get a fast shot, or i will hit the edge of the side of the bat to get a null ball.

more of a lucky wack then a loop, her shot is so ugly and robotic it makes me sick.

laura xiao is pretty good. first of all she lives in kansas where you get get as much opportunities to play tt as other states.  she told me that she has to travel around a lot to play in tourneys since kansas barley has any tourneys.  lol and its annoying playing against choppers.

i think i said ages ago, the standard of play in US is less then that of oceania.

and then i got a few muppets w**king on about USA being higher ranked.

honestly, ive seen people play that would cream her.

Jenny Hung for example, i think shes 15 and is in the NZ common wealth games team... Plays FAR better then Laura Xiao, and i dont see Butterfly sponsoring her.

Just because you see one player play, dont judge the level of all players in the US, or Canada, trust me man.

laura's not that great of a player, but most girls in the US quit at 18 anyway, so it's not like they do it as a job like people in china.

To judge her level of play based on one match is unfair.  I know that there a players whose styles or equipment make me look bad.  That could be what happened here and she won the match.

I wasn't really impressed with how Laura Xiao played again Sophia Yi. I thought Laura was only about 1800. However, she beat a 2000 friend I have in straight games who plays very well, so she must be 2100.

Yulske, post a video of yourself!

About the sponsorhsips of such players in the States....

American players have much more chances and opportunity to get sponsored than Canadian players because more people are aware of table tennis in the States as opposed to Canada. I've beaten some sponsered players in the States, but I never got sponsored except for a little here and there. Plus people are sponsored there because companies (tt ones) want to make table tennis even bigger in a country that is slowly becoming aware of the sport.

hahahaha yulske would be EASILY 2000... he loops everything that can be looped, and loops it hard. (and in more often than not)

Yulske, how dare you have friends! Also, do you have a coach? Most every coach I know has a camcorder because he or she likes to film his or her students. Maybe you could ask to borrow one from a coach or have a coach film you and upload it somehow.

actually, its been the same reason everytime...
lack of camera.

and yulske can certinaly talk the talk, and as ttnooblar said, can walk the walk also.

I believe ttnooblar has played yulske a few times.

no i dont have a coach, at the moment i can get by without a coach because i can play a certain style, a coach would help me by pointing out the exact style i should play.

Im playing this sunday at this social interclub competition (for all the aussies paul pinkewich and wayne higenbotham will be playing)

ill try to get some footage of myself there.

Laura Xiao plays a one-dimensional game with no great specialties or all-around skills. And so , if Yulske is smart enough to play her using his specialties she doesn't really stand a chance. Oh, and female players usually have a poor mid-far distance game, so force her away from the table.

its hard to get to a high level without a coach, but its possible if you play with a lot of adults and high level people

Yulske, it always looks easier than it really is. Many a time I went to a club/tournament, took a look around and thought, hey, I can beat a bunch of people here; They're so damn awful! No sooner they started to hand my ass to me handily...

i regularly play and practice with the top players in my state..

anyway, i dont undesrtand why all you americans are all getting so defensive about laura etc, im telling you what i see, ive played people that play the same as her and its not very hard, im not trying to put down the whole of the proud american nation by saying that some girl who has a so called "high rating" is really not that good of a player.

get over it you goons.

IMO, I'd say getting to a high level just by playing good players is very low chance.

I'd say that to get to a high level (2300+) without ever getting coaching or going to a clinic is between 1 in 100,000 to 1 in 1,000,000.

We like to complain, it's our tradition.

"ive had technical help, its all i needed, footwork etc comes naturally to me."

What's the etc? I agree about the footwork part though. As long as you do heavy movement drills and know basic footwork technique (which is kind of natural anyways), footwork should be fairly natural.

Now Yulske you are getting defensive.  You were the one who keeps telling us how good you are and how bad Laura looks.  Your comments were somewhat over the top and you refused to back off of them.

The match did look really bad though...

In reality, I imagine it was only because both girls were aiming for highest consistency. Laura Xiao didn't need to take as high a risk looping multiple chops in a row because 1) they are more difficult, and 2) Laura is almost positive that Sophia won't attack her drops/ pushes. Really, if a chopper can't counterattack or consistently loop pushes, it's good strategy to usually not loop really heavy chops.

in NO part of this whole topic have i called myself really good and so much better than everyone else.

get your sh*t right you twat, laura does look bad and she moves to the ball very late when she wants to step around to hit a forehand, he serves arent disguised and it seems like it would be very easy to play her if thats how she always plays.

so shutup, and go pester someone else.

child.

i think we should respect everyone here yulske is just writing down his own thoughts after he watched the match plus he said *sorry* for the post so u think we should say OMG ther so good omg she plays just like Wang Nan or Zhang Yining, and all that sh*t, im not such a good player but i took training in Liao Ning China and ive seen good players play tt, so no matter how the girls play just write ur own stuff down and ur own opinion, and if i wer yulske i whould write down w/e i want to write just like what he did.

No one is saying he should not write what he feels, but we also have the right write what we feel too.  I did not disrepect him and I hope that disrepectful message was not aimed at me even though it sounds like it is.  I am hoping he will clearly state who he is talking to.

yes i was talking to you, and you should take my advice because its probably a lot smarter.

You seem like the type who likes to just butt in with everyone else and try to go against someone because everyone else is, because its the popular thing to do....

everyone can see that laura doesnt play well in that and neither does sophia, so are you trying to tell me that im worse than them because everyone else says so?!

and why do you disregard TTnooblars statement, sinces hes the only one who ive played with on this forum and he can speak truthfully because he gets to play with some decent players and he isnt too bad himself.

Now who is being childish.  I did not disrepect you in any way.  I simply stated that you are getting defensive when you stated it all and cant take the heat.  Now how can i bother you.  You dont have a life all you live for is to post on this forum how good you are and what an authority you are on every thing.  I am not afraid of you.  So if you are trying to intimidate me you are wasting your time.  But then again you seem to have plenty of time to waste.

that's pretty obvious dude. if a person got better as a player by posting and wasting time on this forum, yulske would be world champion no doubt.

ariel, you have used your qouta of of bullsh*t in this thread.

Come back next month.

heres a good idea as well
Most digital still cameras have a function that allows them to take small movies......say 1 minute clips...that would probally work.

anyway, where were we.....oh thats right.....everyone was savaging yulske becouse hes not american.....so there is a chance that he could be a decent player.

I agree with Yulske, Laura Xiao isn't what I would consider a good player. The NSW under 15 juniors boys Champion could beat her.

Yulske and TT_Freak,

Do you realize Laura won the match at 8, -8, 6, 8? Winning or losing makes a good player, not whether some know-it-alls on an internet forum think you have pretty game.

She did exactly what she needed to do to win. Do you care more about how you look or whether you win or lose? I couldn't care less how I look if I come out with the W.

yulske, until you actually post a video of yourself playing, you shouldn't be so sharp with your words. and i agree w/ backhandloop. winning is winning. it doesn't matter if she didn't look her best while playing. the point is she won. still, i don't know any decent players who don't have coaches, so post that video please. it's not an "american" or foreign thing. it's a simple fact that decent players have coaches.

you guys in america are convinced that you need a coach to tell you what to do during a game, most top players in our state DONT have coaches, and they could probably beat your whole national team.

Anyway, im over this, ill get some video soon to shut you all up.

Put it this way, all the top USA players trained in their country of birth, which coincidently isn't America. In Australia we have people coming from China who used to be on provincial teams and national teams to teach juniors. So the standard in juniors is higher, but the standard in the older players are lower because the older strongest players moved to America.

Laura won because Sophia didn't attack, and used her long pimples to receive serve most of the time (and so became predictable).

thats true, but dont forget that you have to play at a certain level to maintain that level, so cheng yinghua might have once been a really great player, but if he doesnt play at that level all the time he will obviously not be able to maintain it or improve his own level, this happens to a lot of players.

Yulske, you've been playing less than a year and you're over 2100 US (better than Laura Xiao) with no coach?   That is very funny.

You're losing credibility very fast.

If you're sure, then why are you asking? :)

There are plenty of top players that don't have what you would probably call pretty strokes or games. You guys would probably rip into Toben Wosik and Patrick Chila if someone posted video. Even Maze, the new Eurohope for the young bandwagon fans, gets his feet tangled up and falls away hitting shots.

I would like to have the game of any of those three.

*sigh*

Fact is, Miss. Xiao played horribly against Miss. Yi. She popped up so many serves it was hard to figure out why Sophia didn't just kill them. And she didn't even execute the European strategy properly, you must force them AWAY from the table and THEN execute a drop. That she even won is testament to the fact that to be a chopper nowadays you must either be incredibly consistant and tricky (Ding Song) or be an attacker with a chop backhand (Chen Weixing).

She didn't HAVE to alter her serve receive because Sophia DIDN'T make her pay for the pop-ups. If you're doing something and it's working, why try something else? If your opponent adjusts, THEN change tactics. Are you suggesting she should change tactics when she's winning the match and in control of the points?

She may have played horribly in your opinion, but the scoresheet doesn't have an opinion.

The fact the Laura won was more to do with Sophia playing even worse than she was, for most of the match I couldn't even believe they were rated 2000.

Hey, you guys who think you can beat Laura! This just shows what a sorry bunch of players you guys really are. What you guys don't know is this: For most good players, the level of play falls/rises depending on the opponents. Laura may not look like much against a less challenging opponent, but she's still good enough to hand your collective ass to you handily. Unless you're truly a 2000+ player, don't yak your mouth prematurely about beating Laula...

Actually, whether any of us would beat her or not is rather irrelevant (but quite possible). Does any of the forum members being an average player mean that he can not point out mistakes and bad form?

Oh, and if she has a hard time with less challenging opponents, then she either has a big problem with less common styles or mental instability. I'm guessing on the later, most juniors aren't very strong mentally.
