A really back and forth battle between Hina Hayata and Miu Hirano.

WHY ITO MIMA SUPERIOR TO OTHER GIRLS BY FAR ?

MIMA ITO looks hefty, sturdy gal. This massive muscularity is a great advantage over all the other gals.

ITO's daily physical exersise is punching the "sand bag" vigorously, like a boxer. It is Japanese COACHING KNOWHOW, not so popular in China yet.

Massive muscularity?  Uhm... look, I'm a huge fan of Mima Ito, but if Mima Ito and Cheng I Ching get into a boxing ring, I'm gonna have to take CIC.

Timo Boll and Patrick Franziska in a tight one right now 1-1.  Timo won in the 7th at the Euro championships.  Let see how he and Patrick play this one out.

so sad for Franziska, he had two match points yet he couldn't convert, I hate the confidence and stability that Timo has to always make this crazy comebacks, It's so annoying, This boy should win, I doubt if Franziska would ever beat Timo, the European Champs and this tournament, he had the win in his hands but he couldn't convert, he'll probably psychologically lose the match even before playing any time he meets Timo again

It's a shame. As much as i love Timo, Franziska played so well and really deserved to win. Especially after his tough loss at the ETTC against Timo..

Don't know the points what these guys were talking about Franziska's deserving to win. If he lost, it means he is not good to beat TB in that match.

Never noticed this guy, Sathiyan, until he took out Wang Chuqin.
Man he is now taking Freitas Marcos to the 7th game.
Unbelievable.

Been watching Sathiyan for some time now, he's been tearing it up for some time now. He was one of the best players in UTT (Ultimate table tennis) league and it was only a matter of time before he started taking out some bigger names. Plays a fast-attack close to table game, suited for the modern game that's evolving before our eyes

Sathiyan mentions in this article how Coach Massimo Costantino  was instrumental in laying a great foundation for Indian table tennis.  He's now taken a position with the ITTF, but it's nice to see good results from India that he was at least a part of.  

And to think Massimo Costantini was once Team USA's head coach.  I recall at the Olympics Jiaqi Zheng and Lily Zhang talking in Chinese amongst themselves and practically ignoring coach Costantini during a break.  I remember remarking how I found that disrespectful.

Actually, forget CIC, I don't know if it's a camera thing, but look at the size of He Zhoujia's right arm:

It was certainly a very tense match.  Franziska mostly played very well. More importantly, he played smart tactics against Timo.  A lot of times, he was ready and waiting for exactly where Timo was putting the ball.  it looked to me like he a put a lot of thought into how to beat Timo.

Timo, on the other hand, played well, but not as great as I've seen him play in some other recent events.  And he was slow to recognize just how well prepared Franziska was for him.  In the end, he started doing some unusual things that threw Franziska off.

I'm sure there is a psychological bock for Franziska, but I also know that he has beaten Timo before.  Timo is just a very experienced player with a wide variety of skills.

By the way, I loved the extra cameras they used.  They showed all these table level views which gives a much better idea of what it's really like to be there watching.  And excellent use of slow motion.

That lateral camera was the best angle to watch the game in real time, but unfortunately they used it only before the players serve and for the slow motion repetition.

+1
My thoughts exactly. Eye level view at that angle would be great. Glad that they are experimenting. Hmmm ... how 'bout player cam headbands?

EDIT: I just saw them sneak in that angled camera through an entire point in the He Zhoujia Suh Hyowon match.

Hi,

Please don't miss Dima vs Lin; a fine demonstration of the growing tendency for powerful players holding the table to fight the fight.

Additionally, if you are interested in how good Tomokazu Harimoto is, watch Harimoto vs a very good Yoshimura, especially the last game where Tomokazu opens up.

Thanks,
Donn

Watching ZYL vs. Honoka Hashimoto.  Tied up 3-3.  It shouldn't be this close.  ZYL is a far superior player, but for some reason has gotten sloppy.

A lucky escape by ZYL.  Hashimoto missed an easy backhand smash at deuce that could have changed the outcome.

Hashimoto Honoka had 2 match points, but unable to make it.  Zhu Yuling (WR #1) won (luckily).
Zhu won in the 7th game.

Update:  Beside Ito Mima, another Japanese female player (Hashimoto) can give Zhu problems.

Wow.  I was really wrong about SYS.  She got destroyed by Ding Ning.  A year or so ago, she was about even with WMY, now she's really fallen off.
