  1. Uh this video is very suspicious. Technical explanations are good, but the services are not following the international rules for a correct service. Watch how Freitas hides the ball in his hand and where his free arm is placed when he strikes the ball. This is embarrassing for an official ITTF teaching video!

  2. u must also remove your hand once the ball is struck which this video doesn't show. having hands between the net and the end line results in a fault serve

  3. Great video! Although China has many great players and Table Tennis is the national game, I've never seen any video in such a great quality made in China.

  4. سلام به تمام ایرانی ها
    دوستان من نمیتونم این کلیپ ها رو باز کنم و دانلود کنم
    لطفا راهنمایی کنید
    ممنونم

  5. when serving, can the ball be past the sides of the table? i know it has to be behind the backline, but what about the side lines? seems like when ppl toss it up, it goes over

  6. 1. His hand is not flat when throwing up the ball.
    2. The ball is not going straight up, a good umpire would say it's illegal.
    3. His right hand hides the ball mid-air.

  7. Hello, please somebody can help me to put the subtitles on this video, I´ve not managed to get all the speech!!! I need it because I´m getting better my service skills playing table tennis. I´m not a English native speaker.

  8. Marcos freitas is a great player, that is without a doubt. However, i feel he might not be the most suitable player for this video, as the legibility of his serves are at times questionable.
