Following another great month of training with HWATT; we’ve decided to update our YouTube play list with what is a relevant video for all players to watch who attend our training this month.

A good ready position which was demonstrated, anticipation which we explained and provided examples of during the last weeks, and the willingness to play a block, strong block or attacking shot when returning which the players have already learnt over the last years is key when wanting to improve your results… explained the Former Australian & Oceania Champion Dennis Makaling at last nights training.

Watch Wang Liquin vs Jean Phillipe Gatien from the French League in 1999, Wang was just too strong, he did not move backwards, he held his ground and played some very tough Table Tennis. Gatien was the Olympic Silver Medalist and World Champion only a few years before but really had little chance against Wang. Said Dennis

By the late 1990’s, the 1993 WTTC champion Jean Philipe Gatien had lost all his sharpness that he once had against the top Chinese Players. Here he was a “sitting duck” against the young Chinese rising star Wang Liqin who went on to win the WTTC singles title 3 times and became one of the greatest players in the TT history. Today Wang Liqin suffers from the same fate of Gatien as the world turns
