In the women's singles final of the Hangzhou Asian Games, China's Sun Yingsha defeated Japan's Hina Hayata 4-1 to win the women's singles gold medal. This match was originally expected by many fans as a match between Sun Yingsha and Wang Yidi, but Wang Yidi lost to Hina Hayata in the semifinals and unfortunately stopped.
Wang Yidi's loss also means that she was defeated by her opponents in succession at the World Table Tennis Championships and Asian Games. Considering that the Paris Olympics are not long away, Wang Yidi's chances of competing in the Tokyo Olympics seem even more remote.
The decision of the national table tennis coaching staff is also controversial. When Wang Yidi was selected for the Asian Games women's singles team, many fans thought it was a black box operation. Despite this, the coaching staff decided to replace Chen Meng with Wang Yidi.
That decision now appears to be a huge mistake. In the semifinals, Coach Ma Lin could not turn the situation around, while Coach Li Falcon looked very desperate. If it weren't for Sun Yingsha's outstanding performance in the final, Ma Lin might have risked leaving class.
Sun Yingsha's victory avoided a repeat of the tragedy at the 1994 Asian Games in Hiroshima, when Deng Yaping was defeated by Tomori Koyama and missed out on gold. Sun Yingsha's roar after the game also released the huge pressure in her heart. At the same time, Chen Meng applauded her junior sister in the stands, showing her overall view and team spirit.
Table tennis, known as the sport of "Ten Shots", is a sport that requires extreme technicality, speed, strength and strategy. But behind these skills, there's another often-overlooked but equally important factor – mindset. In high-level competition, mentality is often the key to victory or defeat.
1. The importance of mindset. In table tennis, every point and ball may determine the direction of the game. A mistake can lead to a loss in a game, while a successful attack can bring a winning turnaround. Therefore, athletes must always remain calm and focused, and must not be affected by momentary mistakes or successes.
2. Strategies to face stress. Table tennis players often face great pressure during the game. They have to face not only the oppression of their opponents, but also the expectations of the audience and their own inner pressure.
To cope with these pressures, many athletes have their own ways of relaxing and adjusting their minds. Some people choose to relax by breathing deeply, closing their eyes, or communicating with a coach; Others adjust their minds by listening to music, doing yoga, or meditating.
3. Learn to accept failure. In competitive sports, failure is inevitable. Even a world champion is not guaranteed to win every match.
Therefore, learning to accept failure and learn from it is a skill that every athlete must master. When faced with failure, athletes should calmly analyze the mistakes in the competition, find out the causes, and improve them in future training.
4. Communication with the coach. Coaches are an important support for athletes in their games. During the competition, the coach not only provides technical and strategic advice, but also psychological support to the athletes. When athletes face difficult situations, the coach's encouragement and guidance can often help them regain their self-confidence and adjust their mentality.
Mentality plays a crucial role in table tennis. Only with a strong will, a cool head and the right strategy can athletes stand out and win in the fierce competition.
