Ask a Pro Anything: Panagiotis “the defentist” Gionis

by Wade Townsend

In the latest episode of Ask a Pro Anything, dentist and defender, Panagiotis Gionis, sat down with Adam Bobrow to answer your questions.

See Gionis serving up some chops with an unusual racket. Then it's checkups all around as the dentist inspects the teeth of your favourite table tennis pros.

As Bobrow drops the beat, listen to Gionis rap with lyrics to rival Homer. And then stay for some tech talk on how the defender has adapted his game to the plastic ball.

The defensive style isn't yet relegated to the ruins of time and myth thanks to Greece's best player. And he isn't going anywhere.

Check out the latest episode below.
