2010 Moscow World Table Tennis Championships Men's Team Finals
China 3 to 1 Germany
At the end of 2009, the "Youth Revolution" initiated by Xu Xin, Zhang Jike and Ma Long began to disintegrate the "Two Kings and One Horse" dynasty.
This "revolution" took place in the national table tennis "Crossing Moscow" trial competition: in the first stage, Xu Xin was the first to qualify for the team competition. Then, Zhang Jike, who appeared suddenly, defeated Malone in the second stage finals and got the second ticket. In the third stage, Malone defeated Li Ping to get the third ticket. In the fourth stage of the "Olympic Three Tigers PK Decisive Battle", Wang Hao, who had won two games, seized the opportunity and obtained the fourth direct qualification. In the final "Mawangdui Final", he caught the hesitation when Wang fell behind, defeated his opponent 3:1 and boarded the last train in Moscow.
Almost no one can predict that Marin, who finally qualified for the competition, will become the biggest contributor to defending Chinese men's table tennis.
In the men's team final of the World Table Tennis Championships in Moscow, the defeat of the Chinese women's table tennis team gave their opponents a chance to win. The German team with Boll at the core once again launched an impact on the Chinese team. For the Chinese team, Liu was keenly aware of Wang Hao's hesitation before the game, and temporarily replaced Zhang Jike in the third game. The women's team lost, temporarily changed players, and their opponents were morale high. In the special context, this final is destined to be difficult.
Malone faced Boll in the first game. With the changes in the first three games and the advantage of speed, Malone took the lead in the next two games. Seeing that victory is just around the corner, Boll suddenly adjusted his tactics and strengthened his rotation as much as possible, mainly attacking Malone's forehand position. This change disrupted Malone's rhythm, which in turn led to a major change in his mentality. The quality of Malone's balls has been greatly reduced, and his unnecessary errors have gradually increased. In the end, Boll won 3-2 and the Chinese team had a bad start.
Under heavy pressure, Marin gave full play to his advantages in the second game, defeating Ochalov 3-0 with a fierce serve attack and a changeable landing feeling, and equalized the score. In the third set, Zhang Jike, who participated in the World Table Tennis Team Competition for the first time, withstood the test and defeated Xu Si 3:1 to achieve the lead of the Chinese team.
The fourth game was a direct collision between Marin and Ball, the top players of both sides. When starting to use inorganic glue, Bohr defeated Marin in the open competition, but Marin made technical adjustments. She no longer relied solely on forehands as in the past, but formed a full-scale offensive technical style based on forehands. In the first game, Marin was reversed by Boll with a 10:5 lead, but Marin did not panic and still played according to her own characteristics. Her tactics were very firm. After the stalemate, Marin was tougher than Malone in handling the ball, her backhand was decisive and powerful, her defense was closer to the table, and she tried her best to put pressure on the opponent. In the end, Marin went to three cities and defeated Boll 3-1 to help the Chinese team win five consecutive championships in the men's team competition of the World Table Tennis Championships.
