The 2021 World Table Tennis Championships will kick off in Houston, USA on November 24th, Beijing time. This is the first time the event has settled in the Americas, and it is also the first international table tennis competition to be held in the Paris Olympic cycle. Although all five championships were won in the previous event, this time, due to veterans such as Ma Long, Liu Shiwen and Xu Xin, the young players of the National Ping Pong Ping Pong Co., Ltd. independently dealt with the World Championships for the first time. This is undoubtedly the coexistence of opportunities and challenges.

Men’s team defending pressure rises sharply

In this World Table Tennis Championships, all countries have sent the strongest lineups, and the masters gathered. In the men’s singles event, Japanese player Zhang Benzhihe, German veteran Boll, Sweden’s last World Table Tennis Championship men’s singles runner-up Falk, Chinese Taipei teenager Lin Yunru, and South Korean player Zhang Yuzhen will all make their debut. Due to the lack of Ma Long and Xu Xin, the national table tennis men’s team will undoubtedly endure a great test this time.

Fan Zhendong is not only the No. 1 seed in the event, but also the best hope for the national table tennis men’s singles to win gold, and even the only hope for many fans. Because apart from him, it is difficult for the other players to be alone. Originally, Liang Jingkun, Wang Chuqin, and Lin Gaoyuan were regarded as Fan Zhendong’s “right-hand man” in the Paris Olympic cycle. However, judging from the growth trajectory in recent years, they still cannot be reassuring. Although their strength is not weaker than that of foreign masters, they are He has been unable to provoke the main beam and repeatedly “short-circuited” in foreign wars. In the past, Malone, Xu Xin and others were “escorted” in international competitions. Now they deal with it alone, and the results are unpredictable. The head coach of the Chinese men’s team, Qin Zhijian, also admitted before the game that he will face great challenges in the men’s singles field this time, and the pressure to defend the title will increase sharply. The team is also ready to “pay tuition” for young athletes.

The opponent of the women’s team is “self”

Relatively speaking, the pressure on the women’s team this time will be much less. On the one hand, no foreign player has the hard power to win gold except Mima Ito. On the other hand, the generals of the national table tennis women’s team are in good shape. Whether it is Xinke Olympic champion Chen Meng, Sun Yingsha, and Wang Manyu, they are all strong contenders for the championship.

The competition between the main players of the national table tennis team is not the first time this year. They are the protagonists from the Olympics to the National Games. At the Olympics, Chen Meng won the women’s singles championship. She said at the time that her time had come, but in the eyes of some people, this was not an era that belonged to her alone, but a new era that belonged to the women’s team, because Sun Yingsha and Wang Manyu were equally capable. Outstanding. Sure enough, returning to the domestic National Games arena, Wang Manyu and Sun Yingsha swept Chen Meng and Liu Shiwen 4-0 in the women’s singles semi-finals. In the end, Wang Manyu had the last laugh. As the “first show” of the Paris Olympic cycle, all three hope to win the championship and then be in the “leading” position in the team. It is also worth mentioning that if Chen Meng is able to aspire, then she will surpass Zhang Jike’s record of the fastest Grand Slam of 445 days.

Can mixed doubles regain lost ground?

Like the Tokyo Olympics, the first champions of the World Table Tennis Championships also came from the mixed doubles event. At the Olympics, Hayat Mizutani/Mima Ito reversed Xu Xin/Liu Shiwen to win the gold medal game. This was also the only gold medal lost by Guoping in the tournament. As Mizutani Hayabusa has announced his retirement, Mima Ito will not participate in the mixed doubles competition in the World Table Tennis Championships. Although Xu Xin/Liu Shiwen did not go to the United States, the two pairs of Wang Chuqin/Sun Yingsha and Lin Gaoyuan/Wang Manyu are still worth looking forward to.

According to the rules of the tournament, there are 32 seeded players in singles events and 16 seeded combinations in doubles events. Chinese Taipei combination Lin Yunru/Zheng Yijing is the number one seed in the mixed doubles event, Wang Chuqin/Sun Yingsha are also listed as seeds, Lin Gaoyuan/Wang Manyu failed to enter the seed list, which also makes them very likely to encounter strong enemies early and advance the road It will not be smooth sailing.Chief reporter Yan Bin
