The following observations are of course my personal view and do not claim to be the “truth”!
Here comes LIU Fei (China):
This is a great one:
- good footwork and general physical fitness
- very good, low and consistent forhand defending with pips-in rubber which is very rare in female table tennis.
- forehand push with pips-in is very choppy producing a lot of first topspin errors by the opponent
- backhand defence also very low and choppy
- generally too much defence only, nearly no attacking capabilities shown over whole match
- too many backhand serves of same style and placement
- absolutely needs to work on attacking capabilities, especially forehand topspin on pushes down her middle or forehand
- also counter topspins or aggressive blocks from behind the table with forehand need to be developed, same as most of male defenders and also female players as Wu Yang f.e
