|Jan-Ove Waldner may have retired from international competition, but during his career he was a formidable table tennis player capable of destroying any opponent on his day.
About.com Table Tennis forum member Sean P. O'Neill, a 2-time Olympian and 5-time US National Champion, has butted heads with Jan-Ove more than once, and has put together a blueprint for beating the Swedish maestro of ping-pong. While few of us will ever get the chance to step on the court against Waldner, it is fascinating to learn what an elite player such as Sean has to say about Waldner's game and what weaknesses there are to take advantage of, and how to go about exploiting them! Thank you for the insight Sean!
