Today's highlights of the World Cup: The national table tennis against Japan may break out a vicious battle, and how to arrange the troops is worth paying attention to
In the Mixed Team World Cup, the competition is becoming more and more intense as the competition progresses.
In the match on December 8, Japan played against South Korea, and after a hard-fought battle, Japan lost to South Korea with a score of 4-8.
The most fundamental reason for the Japanese team's loss is mainly because Tomokazu Zhangmoto's performance is not very stable!
After the first two sets, the Japanese team and the South Korean team at that time fought to a big score of 3 draws!
But in the crucial third set, Tomokazu Zhang lost 1-2 against Zhang Yuzhen, which led to the Japanese team falling behind 3-5!
In the fourth set of the men's doubles match, Zhang Benzhi and Hayasuke Togami played against South Korea's Zhang Yuzhen Lim Jong-hoon, the two completely collapsed, and finally were swept by the opponent 0-3, especially in the last game, they were beaten with a tragic score of 1-11!
And the Chinese team is still very strong in the game against the German team!
Although in the first set of mixed doubles, Sun Yingsha and Wang Chuqin lost a game when they came up, but fortunately, Sun Yingsha and Wang Chuqin quickly adjusted their state and won two games in a row, helping the Chinese team take a big 2-1 lead!
Wang Manyu, who played next, played strongly in the game against German player Shan Xiaona and swept the opponent with a score of 3-0!
In the third set of the men's singles match, the Chinese team sent Ma Long to face the German team's Ricardo Walser, and the veteran Ma Long swept the opponent with a score of 11-4 in three games, helping the Chinese team lock up the victory!
As a result, so far, only China and South Korea have won both and tied for first place, while Japan has suffered its first defeat.
On December 9th, the match will continue, and the Chinese team will also face the Japanese team on December 9th!
Let's talk about the result of the game first, although the game has not yet started, but we can know the result in advance, that is, the Chinese team will definitely defeat the Japanese team! The only suspense is that the Chinese team will lose a few games!
Compared with the result of the game, in fact, the biggest suspense is what kind of lineup the Chinese team will send!
In the first set of mixed doubles, did the Chinese team send Sun Yingsha and Wang Chuqin combination, or Lin Gaoyuan and Wang Yidi, or Lin Gaoyuan and Wang Manyu combination?
From the perspective of strength, there is no doubt that the combination of Sun Yingsha and Wang Chuqin is currently the most powerful mixed doubles combination in national table tennis, but the Japanese team considering it is likely to send Hina Hayada to play in the women's singles, so will the Chinese team arrange for Sun Yingsha to face Hina Hayada in singles?
In fact, even if the Chinese team sends Wang Manyu Lin Gaoyuan combination, or Wang Yi Dilin Gaoyuan combination, they are also capable of defeating Zhang Benmei and Togami Hayasuke combination!
However, our Chinese team has always been more preemptive and came out on top, so for the sake of insurance, the Chinese team is still likely to send Sun Yingsha and Wang Chuqin to play in mixed doubles!
So, who will play the women's singles and men's singles in the back?
In the case of Sun Yingsha participating in the mixed doubles, there are still three members of the women's team who may play in the women's singles, that is, Wang Manyu, Chen Meng and Wang Yidi!
Considering that so far, the coaching staff has not sent Wang Yidi to play in women's singles, so against the Japanese team, the possibility of the coaching staff letting Wang Yidi play in women's singles is almost 0.
So who will play in the women's singles between Wang Manyu and Chen Meng?
Judging from the current situation, the coaching staff seems to be more inclined to Wang Manyu! Because so far, a total of seven rounds of matches have been played, Wang Manyu has played four women's singles, so the Chinese team is likely to continue to send Wang Manyu to face Hina Hayada in the game against the Japanese team!
In the men's singles match, the Chinese team is likely to send one of Fan Zhendong and Ma Long to face Japan's Tomokazu Zhangmoto, but overall, it is more likely that Fan Zhendong will play!
In fact, judging from the strength of the Chinese team, in this mixed team World Cup, the arrangement is still very conservative, everything is based on stability, and it does not play a role in training newcomers and training at all, but shows all their hole cards!
For national table tennis, although it can ensure that this championship will not be taken away by other associations, but at the same time, it also exposes the family background of national table tennis in advance, and our Paris Olympic lineup is almost a bright card!
This will do more harm than good to prepare for the Paris Olympics!
