Michael Maze is a table tennis legend from Denmark. He is a left-handed player known for his strong forehand loops and fantastic defensive lobs and sidespin shots. He was one of the last European players who could beat a Chinese.

i like th fact you put in points maze lost also
Soei23 (11 months ago)
For such a tall player he is very agile. His footwork combined with his length enables him to get to shots most others wouldn't be able to make. Combined with those backhand shots... holy crap! What I also found amazing was how many players found his high backhand topspin balls so difficult to finish. Very often they hit it JUST behind the net and after a few times of Maze returning it again somehow they just couldn't do it. Simply amazing.

Anybody else think Brad Pitt could play Maze if they ever made a movie about him? They look very alike!

Good video, love when the audience gets into the point. I wish tennis would allow audiences to be audiences and cheer for people while they play instead of having to stay hush quiet.
Guy Daley (1 year ago)
Wow, just WOW! Believe it or not, I've actually heard people say that table tennis wasn't a sport, including a popular radio commentator in Phoenix. So many people have such small universes.

Maze was a good player, not world class although he did reach the semi-finals of the 2005 world championships where he got crushed 4-0 by Ma Lin but in Europe, he was quite accomplished. He might have gone further but he did have some injury problems that needed surgical intervention.
Humpty Dumpty (1 year ago)
Anissen The man was a good player and played what I call an "attractive game" and was very entertaining to watch just really couldn't mix it with the top guys when he got to the championship rounds,but a good player no doubt.

"He was one of the last European players who could beat a Chinese." Right, because by being Chinese, you're naturally invincible in table tennis.

OK, but 3:24 is Dima's sidespin and his point; and his bh hook-shot is even better than Maze'.

F'n Slow you should not use wrist in your backhand. The wrist should just follow the movement of the underarm

F'n Slow Who cares what technique they used. It his technique works for him, that’s fine.
