Pretty good video of Speedy in action in 2005. I'm sure he's improved in the last 4 years. Saw the reference of his playing style in the Welcome Brian Pace thread, but I didn't want to get off topic. So here's the link!

Btw, no wonder his tag is SPEEDY. LoL

Fast looping! I wonder how your loops have been effected by the glue ban?

His rating is 2198, so it's safe to call him a 2200;)

Solid stuff!

lol yeah, that guy did look like a deer in the headlights didnt he? but i would be too with fireballs coming at me even off my serves.

His official rating is 2280. I would say around 2300

Oh my goodness, how did you find me?  Yes, that's me.  To clear up some rating confusion, my highest rating was 2294.  My current rating now is 2198.

Well, the video that you are watching was 4 years ago, when I was about 2100s or so.  If you looked at the serves, they are SO LONG.  Those are very bad serves.  That "speedy" wasn't that good.  I am about 4 points better than that right now.

I was using Joola Kool and Mont Juic rubbers on both side in that video.  I switched to short pips on my backhand not too long after that.

It's about the same speed.  However, I have to use more physical, and 4 years older is NOT helping at all. LOL

Damn I like your style man, very agressive just how I like it. Your forehand smash and countersmash is extremely nice. Nice loops too, I'm definitely impressed. I do have to say your opponent didn't look that good. That may explain why you look so good.

I thought you were doing that on purpose just to bait them into hitting a long shot in return... for you to counter loop.

Wow.

Those blocks and counters were amazing!

Incredible speed, and stunning control of the points.

What was your opponent rated?


p.s.
people with speedy's technique and style can certainly shine with OFF+ gear like the Kool... the rest of us, however... we'd be lucky to manage one of those blocks :D

Yes, that too, but honestly I didn't really have a good short serve at that time.

I thought that most of 2000+ players should have short serves.  I have a friend of mine who's about 2000 level and he told me that he needs to work on his short game more since players at his level have solid short games.  So, I just wonder if you really have short game?
 
How long do you play and how old were you when you started to play because I think with your style, you probably started to play when you were young. 
 
Well, you probably already guess I'm Vietnamese too but I'm no where near your level but just be happy to know there are some well-known Vietnamese players in the U.S.

P.S. I just edited out my question about your game compared to Khoa Nguyen's and De Tran's because it's not a polite thing to ask :)

Well, I didn't like the short game 4 years ago.  I love to go all out for the kill and counter attack.  Now, I do have a short games.  The younger kids are much better than the older guys in the counter attack games.  So, I developed the short games, and getting better with it every day.

I started playing around 6 or 7.  When I was 14 or so, I quit for about 12-14 years, then just started again in 1999.

It's ok to ask me about my game compare to De Tran (~2450) and Khoa Nguyen (~2550).  They are much better than me.  That's obvious.  I can probably give them a hard time, but can't be a threat to those guys.  Smile

Well, I'm glad that you didn't feel offended about my question regarding those two guys. 
 
About your short game, I think you probably didn't like to do it at first since you said you like to hit it like no tomorrow.  I have a practice partner who does the same thing too and it took him a long time to work on the short game but until now, he still hates it when someone control him by the short game.
 
Now to the question about the blade, have you ever tried Ishlion?  If you did, could you tell me if T5000 is the same as Ishlion?  I have used Ishlion for a while and am thinking of trying one of the Timo Boll Series blade and I'm debating b/w the T5000 and the ALC.
 
And have you every tried Yasaka Pryde rubber?  I've been using it for a while (on my Ishlion blade) and love it. 
 
Thanks in advance.

They are my friends.  It's all good.  I tried Ishlion, T5000, and ALC.  T5000 is better than the other two all around.  I tried Yasaka Pryde.  It's really good rubber.  I recommend T5000 with Pryde.  However, Pryde is too soft for me.
