BUTTERFLY FAVORITES: The Control of Tiago Apolonia

(by Steve Hopkins)

This is a 2014 video posted by TT Tributes.  The focus of the video is the control of Portugal’s Tiago Apolonia.  Tiago is known for great technique and great movement.  He is an exciting and mobile player who has developed a game with many safe and careful shots.  His style makes for long rallies and spectacular points – many of which are highlighted here.

Enjoy this highlight reel of Tiago Apolonia playing many of Europe’s best with points against Boll and Ovtcharov and Steger and Schlager and many others.

Tiago Apolonia uses the  Apolonia ZLC blade with Tenergy 05 Hard on his forehand and Dignics 05 on his backhand. The Tiago Apolonia Pro-Line Racket is on sale this week at ButterflyOnline.com

 

 

A message from Tiago about the Butterfly Blade that bears his name:
