August 12, 2016 – The make or break match for Team USA with the singles competition over and the Women’s team eliminated by Germany earlier this afternoon it was on the shoulders of the Men’s team to stay in the games. Facing Sweden with two singles players rated 27th and 32nd in the world it would be a difficult task.

Coach Massimo Constantini was pleased with the efforts of the team despite the result, “I think we played well knowing that we had a really tough opponent.

World Champion, World Cup winner, Ma Long added to his list of current titles by winning the Men’s Singles title at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on the evening of Thursday August 11th.

Ma Long was the dominant player of the moment but the big stage, the biggest stage of all was where four years ago in London, Zhang Jike had proved himself very much at home.

Best Versus Best
Arguably the best backhand in the world against the best forehand, with each player most adept at what might be described as their weaker wing but which is the equal or the better than rest of humanity…. Read More at ITTF

Defeat at the hands of China’s Ma Long earlier in the day on Thursday August 11th but most impressive, becoming involved in rallies of the very highest order, Japan’s Jun Mizutani secured the bronze medal in the Men’s Singles event at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Occupying the no.4 seed position in the competition, in the crucial contest he overcame Vladimir Samsonov of Belarus, the no.7 seed, to secure the third step of the podium and become the first ever male player from Japan to win a medal in the table tennis events at an Olympic Games.

In a hard fought contest that thrilled the near to capacity crowd, Jun Mizutani won in five games (11-4, 11-9, 6-11, 14-12, 11-8).

The result was as not only status suggested but as results in recent times indicated.

Jun Mizutani had won four of their five previous meetings in international competition but it had been some time since they had met; the most recent… Read More at ITTF

Have you ever wondered what champions do before they go to battle, especially if the prior match took a long extension? Luckily someone was able to catch how the Grand Slam champion Zhang Jike prepared before his match against Koki Niwa in the Olympic Singles quarterfinals.

Zhang Jike is showing good condition in this year’s Olympic Games since he debuted in the competition. It was perceived that his journey in the Singles won’t be easy but he actually managed to pull off a convincing performance.

His first hurdle was Chen Chien An and Zhang Jike ended it in four straight games. After which, he registered another 4-0 and this time… Read More at ITTF

Eagerly awaited, repeat or revenge was the subject, the finalists having met in the title deciding contest in London four years ago when the verdict went in favor of Li Xiaoxia.

In Riocentro Pavilion 3 on the evening of Wednesday August 10th it was revenge, Ding Ning emerged successful in a seven games contest of the highest quality (11-9, 5-11, 14-12, 9-11, 8-11, 11-7, 11-7).

Records between the two counted for nought, a good start, settling the nerves having waited in the wings for the bronze medal match to conclude was surely of prime importance.

Early Advantage
The early advantage went to Ding Ning who was determined to seize the initiative, the modern day “banana” backhand return of service from the forehand with forearm vertical and racket circumnavigating the ball, being used to return service on… Read More at ITTF

Ovtcharov and Tokic Kick off Match in A Duel of Champions

Table Tennis has been a point of excitement for the Brazilian crowd with local champion Hugo Calderano putting on an amazing display up until elimination in Round 4, but tonight they were in for a real treat.

As we know a table tennis game is played to 11 points, but once the game reaches 10-10 it’s one serve each and a win-by-two cut-throat scenario. Dimitrij Ovtcharov of Germany had survived a 7 game encounter with Li Ping… Read more at USA Table Tennis

Day four preview: medals on their mind

Courtesy of ITTF / by Wade Townsend

It’s been hard to keep up with all the upsets and records in Rio so far. Be prepared and stay ahead of the curve by reading today’s preview.

Never tell me the odds
London 2012 bronze medallist Feng Tianwei will be facing off against Ai Fukuhara today. Whoever wins will be favourite to finish with at least a bronze medal here in Rio. Both women are the biggest threats to China left in the draw and are capable of claiming gold on a good day. Fukuhara is in fine form and is yet to drop a game in the Riocentro pavilion. It’s a good statistic, but she won’t want to look too closely at the numbers — Feng leads their head to head 14-3, with Fukuhara losing the last five encounters. Feng is going to be aggressive and look to control the table and Fukuhara is going to have to absorb a lot of attacks directed towards her backhand side. If the Japanese star’s defences are strong, Feng may be in trouble.

Surprise Semifinalist
Yu Mengyu and Kim Song I have both outperformed their seedings. DPR Korea’s Kim has played more matches than any women left in the draw, but her legs don’t look like giving out anytime soon. She caused the first big upset in Rio by… Read More at ITTF

Yesterday saw some monumental upsets. Can day three bring out the matches to top it? With Grand Slams in the balance, of course it can.

Here Comes Hugo
The first match in Rio for Jun Mizutani will be against Hugo Calderano and who would want that? An in form opponent and more than 5,000 Brazilians cheering against you in the stands. It’s going to be a rough ride for Mizutani. They’ve played once before and Jun won in six games, but he will have to do more this time around to neutralise the threat of a rapidly maturing Calderano. Would a win for the Brazilian even be considered an upset… Read more at ITTF

16-year-old Kanak Jha is playing at his first Olympic Games, and many are already thinking about his long-term future representing the U.S. in table tennis.

RIO DE JANEIRO – For someone born on June 19, 2000, Kanak Jha has done well to fit in with the older crowds.

He knows what a VHS is and grew up watching a few video tapes. Before Pokémon took off on people’s iPhones, he remembers collecting stacks of the trading cards. His iPod includes classics by Michael Jackson and Queen. Jha is still a kid but he also holds the distinction of being the first U.S. Olympian born in 2000 to compete at the Summer Games.
