For those of you who haven’t seen the new technology via the ITTF we are now able to see the serving ball placement of players, similar to that you find in tennis. In the image you can see Ma Long’s service placement during the 5th set against Tomokazu Harimoto at the recent China Open. 100% of Ma Long’s serves went short into Harimoto’s forehand.
It looks like Ma Long has found the tactic or placement that works against Harimoto’s style. Thoughts?
