OK some of you laughed as you clicked this thread. I acknowledge this is a ridiculous question and since this is a board consisting of Tennis fans, I know what kind of answers to expect. Thus, it's almost a rhetorical question but I've heard some people say ping pong is harder to play than Tennis(no joke)

Seems like some Chinese think Ping Pong requires so much reflex that it is a hard sport to play. Wow, it must be so much coincidence that I'm hearing this after the Olympic ends(sarcasm). Sure, any sport that THEY'RE good at is hard.

Can anyone seriously even see an argument that Ping Pong is harder than Tennis in any aspect except perhaps hand-eye coordination and racket control? Yea, this applies to Tennis too.
