The champions are being born. However the champions are also being created. You are wrong if you think that it is easy to make a champion. However, it is not impossible! Stubborn, permanent, hard training is inevitable, but to work more and more does not necessarily mean that the training would be in such a way better or more successful. How to make better and how to improve the skill in a very heavy and complex game as table tennis? By most difficult training, with more and more training, by simulating of the shots which are mostly used in the tournaments, or by intelectual efforts and by special tactics?

Most experts consider that the better results could be achieved only through a good coach. The self-trained table tennis players are quite rare in todays table tennis. To be a coach is a professional job, same like a professional table tennis player. They both have quite determined tasks. The coach must also make extraordinary efforts in order to reach successful results. It is very important that the coach likes his job, that his job becomes a part of himself. Otherwise, it would become very difficult to work through years, in spite of the attractive salaries. It is not real to expect that the good coach be a magician.
