I think that was in 2004? Esfandiari and Ng were two of the players featured, I think the other one was Dutch Boyd (who didn't seem to be anywhere near as accomplished at them as the other two).
Basically, I think you can separate players into two categories: those who can do the butterfly, and those who can't. If they can do the butterfly, they've spent a lot of time working on their tricks.
