  1. Hi, after 6 years of competitive table tennis at 5-10 hours a week (so still not too intensive) I have been suffering from tennis elbow for 1,5 years now and have stopped playing since. I would like to return to the game, but every time I do so, I sense the tennis elbow coming back.
    I mostly feel the pain when playing the backhand drive. When I play only forehand, or try playing backhand topspin, it is better. However, backhand block is an important stroke and it’s virtually impossible to leave it out. I haven’t found any technical advice on how to avoid or heal tennis elbow other than “rest”.

  2. I try to “hit the ball with my legs” and i get a lot of power in the ball. However, when i do forehand loop and i transfer the weight from my right leg to the left leg, i get discomfort in my left knee. I think it might be wrong technique, what are you supposed to do with the leg or foot to “absorb” the power?

    • Probably wrong technique. I could imagine your body’s center of gravity shifts linearly to the left side improperly loading your legs. Remember we always want to maintain balance therefore requiring cog equal by distance from left and right leg for even distribution(satisfying the moment/torque 2nd law of static equilibrum). But if you find yourself in a situational shot where you estimate an uneven load distribution imo I just try to fully rebound and spring back from a full grasshopper flip or try to lean towards the leg that isn’t loaded as much just before the end of the shot.

    • I know my dear coach, i’ve done it but i was seek and stayed on a bed for three years so my body is like a grandfather for the moment. I work every days to restore my power, stamina and acuracy. It will be long and i need to make my mind like water. Thank you for your advice. Bye. Wilfrid.
