Liam Pitchford’s stunning behind-the-back shots against Jun Mizutani feature in the ITTF’s Best Shots of 2019 video.

As well as going viral on social media and being featured on BBC Breakfast and Sky Sports News, the shots helped Liam to victory over his Japanese opponent in the last 32 of the Austrian Open in November.

Now they have been included on the 2019 showreel and Liam is in good company, as the likes of world No 1 Fan Zhendong, Olympic champion Ma Long, Japan’s top female player Mima Ito and German legend Timo Boll also feature.

Feast your eyes on the video below – Liam is around three-and-a-half minutes in.
