    maybe that's why Mark isn't going at 34lb or 36lbs? just wondering.

    Hehe... during warmup while doing deep baseline clears you can listen to the pitch of his shots and you can tell how much effort he needs to put into the shots. If you can consistently pin him to baseline while his clears never reach your rear tramlines, then you'll know his weakness.
