Ma Long won't even get to the final. Some Korean or Japanese will kick him off.
The Koreans know how to beat him.
THAT is funny. Ma Long has lost one match to a non-Chinese player in
five years. He is the defending world and Olympic champion. He has been
almost unbeatable for the last few years. He played one
match at a big tournament last week. And now the Koreans (or maybe the
Japanese) "know how to beat him"??? That is a pretty bizarre inference
to make from the available data. I would bet a great deal that it will
be quite awhile before he loses to another non-Chinese player again,
especially at an event like the WTTC
it might be better for the sport if he did lose to a non-Chinese. It just amazes me the things people conclude from a single match that might be a freak occurrence.
Can he beat FZD still? Sure, why not? But it is probably pretty close to a coin toss at this point.
