Fan Zhendong Blade Series

Focus on what’s in front of you.

Give your all to each game, each ball, and each moment.

Clear your mind and act with modesty.

Even if you struggle and fail,

Keep moving forward and learn from your failures.

 

Moving forward is the best and the only way

to reach your greatest goals

and not miss opportunities.

 

Fan Zhendong aims straight ahead.

 

Move forward, straight ahead.

Ready to create an era

Fan Zhendong analyzes himself as “a type of person who steadily builds one piece at a time.” He says that he trains himself everyday with the mentality of remaining humble and down-to-earth never being conceited about his own abilities and achievements. Table tennis fans all over the world are attracted to Fan’s precise and daring performance making use of his honed skills, physical strength, and courage.

“I’m very happy to have a blade named after me, and I’m sure it will bring me more improvement.”

Now using a blade engraved with his own name, Fan Zhendong is accelerating his own evolution and is trying to create his own era. The eyes of the 25-year-old, who craves victory more than anyone else, are fixed straight ahead.
