Tahl's Take
Crystal is a left handed penhold player who uses the reverse backhand. She made the final of the US Nationals 2 years ago and came very close to taking the title. This year she won mixed doubles. Crystal is a great player to watch. She uses short pips on her forehand and plays a very nice game.
