The Mixed Team World Cup entered the penultimate day of competition, and in a key battle, the South Korean team and the German team fought hard for 14 rounds to separate the winners and losers, and almost reached the tiebreaker, playing the highest score of the Mixed Team World Cup. In the end, the South Korean team narrowly defeated the German team 8-6 and continued to maintain a complete victory. In this way, the South Korean team has become the only opponent of the national table tennis championship.
In this game, the South Korean team has made a big adjustment compared to the lineup against the Japanese team in the last round. South Korea's first brother Zhang Yuzhen gave up singles and matched mixed doubles with Tian Zhixi. The adjustment was immediate, with Zhang Yuzhen/Tian Zhixi playing very well, sweeping Meissner/Winter in straight games, 11-6, 11-9, 11-9.
However, Kim Na-young, who played as the women's singles, completely destroyed the advantage of mixed doubles, and she lost three games in a row 3-11/6-11/11-13 to Chinese star Shan Xiaona. You must know that when she played against the Japanese team in the last round, Kim Na-young also grabbed a key game in the hands of Hina Hayata. After this game, the aggregate score of the two sides came to 3 draws.
In the men's singles, in the case of Jang Woo-jin playing in mixed doubles, the Korean team did not send Lim Jong-hoon, who has the strongest singles ability, but sent Ahn Jae-hyun, who can only be ranked No. 3 or even No. 4 in the team, and Ahn Jae-hyun lost to Walser 11-13/11-3/7-11 in three games, and the Korean team fell behind 4-5.
It was the men's doubles that turned the tide for South Korea, with Lim Jong-hoon switching from Jang Woo-jin to Ahn Jae-hyun. After sweeping Tomokazu Zhangmoto/Hayasuke Togami in the last round, and sending Tomokazu Zhang to the Korean men's doubles that was defeated 11-1, this time he swept Meissner/Walser in three straight games, reversed the disadvantage, and won the match point 7-5. After losing the first game, the women's doubles team Lee Si Win and Tian Ji Hee cashed in match point in the second game to help the Korean team seal the victory.
In this way, the South Korean team, which has won consecutive victories against Japan and Germany, has locked the top two in advance, and they only have one opponent left, that is, national table tennis. It can be seen that in the face of the German team, the South Korean team did not send the strongest lineup. At least in both the men's and women's singles, South Korea has reservations.
Although the overall strength of the South Korean team is definitely obviously weak compared with the national table tennis, they do not have too obvious shortcomings. South Korea's two mixed doubles pairs, Lim Jong-hoon/Shin Yu-bin and Jang Woo-jin/Tian Ji-hee, are both quite strong. Shin Yubin, who has missed many games in a row, may make a comeback in the final round, and one of them is likely to be played in the men's singles. In women's doubles, Tian Zhixi/Shin Yubin are ranked No. 1 in the world, and in men's doubles, they have swept two consecutive matches. In other words, there is no ball in the national table tennis that can guarantee a sweep in three games. Therefore, the time has come to test the arrangements of the coaching staff of both sides, and the two sides will inevitably start the ultimate game, we will wait and see.
