Beijing time on October 24, the current time is mid-to-late October. At present, the Macao Championship, one of the three major commercial events of WTT, has come to a successful end, and after layers of fierce duels, the main players of the four members of the national table tennis team, Fan Zhendong, Wang Chuqin, Sun Yingsha and Chen Xingtong, successfully completed the task of the team competition and successfully met the final. The next two peak matchups within the team really made people exclaim after watching it. Among them, the focus battle of the men's singles is indeed a little surprising, the 22-year-old fierce general has resisted the pressure of the current world No. 1 and played a different self, congratulations to Qin Zhijian!
In the men's singles final, national table tennis player Wang Chuqin and teammate Fan Zhendong encountered. Fan Zhendong is now ranked first in the world men's singles, and his comprehensive strength is outstanding. Previously, he had been personally affirmed by Qin Zhijian, the head coach of the men's team, and he was the absolute core of the new cycle in Paris. But it is worth mentioning that compared with the majestic little fat last year, he has entered the new cycle of Paris to play more stable and less fierce. This time in the Macau Championship, Fan Zhendong has been tested by foreign battles, from Huang Zhenting to Jiaha, from Yochik to Lin Yunru, Xiao Fat has been full of foreign combat intensity all the way, until the final is to play the national table tennis civil war. Wang Chuqin's side is also in a similar situation, as a member of the absolute main force of the Paris cycle like Fan Zhendong, the growth of the big head is obvious to all, and the semi-final captain Ma Long, and Fan Zhendong will meet in the final, which really makes the outside world look forward to his future ceiling.
On paper, Fan Zhendong is higher than Wang Chuqin, but considering that the latter's competitive state has been very hot recently, the outside world has certain expectations for this "next gram" before the game. In this game, the first four games, both sides won 2 games. In general, Xiao Fatty tends to be conservative in the first three boards of attack and plays a little passively, while Wang Chuqin's side does not have any psychological baggage, dares to fight and dares to rush, and overwhelms Little Fat in momentum. However, in the game where Xiao Fat won, he used his hard power to interpret the violent forehand well, and at the same time gradually brought back the disadvantage by relying on continuous line changes and large-angle movements. In the fifth game, Wang Chuqin changed tactics and skillfully played the forehand and backhand, which made Fan Zhendong lose the offensive initiative, and finally fell into the downwind in the control of the ball in the table, and then Wang Chuqin won the game with an 11-1 score.
In the sixth game, in the face of Wang Chuqin's increasingly strong momentum, Xiao Fatty coped with it with difficulty, relying on hard resistance to the hard top to drag to the tiebreaker 11-9. In the seventh game, Wang Chuqin played more aggressively, and staged many forehand and backhand returns in a row, so effectively defusing Fan Zhendong's high-quality attack, Xiao Fat really had no better way to limit Wang Chuqin. In the end, after seven sets, Wang Chuqin defeated Fan Zhendong (11-5, 12-14, 12-10, 8-11, 11-1, 9-11, 11-8) 4-3 to achieve the men's singles summit. Wang Chuqin can win this game, which shows that he has risen another step in his overall strength, which can also make coaches such as Qin Zhijian very happy. Compared with the bigger and more open head, Xiao Fat also lost to the post-00 player again after Zhang Benzhihe, it seems that in terms of playing style, Xiao Fat has to be repositioned, the game is not smooth and a little uncomfortable. Under the influence of Qin Zhijian and others, Fan Zhendong made up for his shortcomings when he had shortcomings, and became more "comprehensive", but he lacked a little sharpness and offensive spirit on the field, and there were a lot less killers.
There is no doubt that Xiao Fat is currently facing an important point in his career, whether the practice is suitable for him, or whether it is time to return to violent scoring play, his choice will determine whether he can become the "next Malone". Some people practice to become all invincible hexagonal warriors, but others gradually lose themselves on the way to all-round. I hope that Fan Zhendong can sum up well after experiencing the impact of two rounds of post-00 players and find the most suitable path for himself. Next, the Xinxiang World Cup final will start again, and the national table tennis players will once again face the severe test of internal and external battles, and it is expected that the players can compete at a high level and play their best in the new event! Come on national table tennis!
