At present, the Chengdu World Table Tennis Championships, which has attracted the attention of table tennis fans all over the world, has decided the final king. China Guoping, the king of the world table tennis world, won the championship of men’s team and women’s team without accident. This result is also the embodiment of Guoping’s top strength. However, although the champion belongs to Guoping, for some defeated players of Guoping, they have to find something else to show their unconvinced. No, Japanese table tennis, which has been suppressed by national table tennis, came back to China, and the Japanese media released a list of male table tennis players in the World Table Tennis Championships. Funny thing is, in this list, Malone, who won all seven games in the World Table Tennis Championships, was directly ranked fourth. At present, Fan Zhendong, which ranks first in the world, is directly ignored by the Japanese media, and can’t even enter the top five. As for the number one player, I believe you should have guessed it.
Chengdu World Table Tennis Championships, as a major competition this season, almost all the top table tennis players in the world came to Chengdu to participate in this table tennis feast. As the host country and the top table tennis team in the world, Guoping is naturally the favorite of the champion. However, neither the men’s team nor the women’s team let the fans down. In their own home court, Guoping won two championships in a sweeping way. Of course, compared with the women’s team, there are still some waves in the men’s team’s championship.
In the semi-final with the Japanese men’s team, the China men’s team encountered the biggest challenge since the start of the game. Japan’s first brother, Chinese-American Zhang Benzhi, is in very good shape in this World Table Tennis Championships, especially in this Sino-Japanese table tennis semi-final. In order to test Wang Chuqin, the national table tennis coaching staff arranged for Wang Chuqin to serve as the second single against Zhang Benzhihe. Wang Chuqin, like Zhang Benzhihe, is a post-00 player, which can also be regarded as a confrontation between new forces in the future table tennis world. But what I didn’t expect was that Wang Chuqin lost completely in this post-00 showdown.
If Wang Chuqin’s loss is understandable, then the number one player in the world, the key player of China team, the loss of a single Fan Zhendong made the fans feel nervous. In the face of Zhang Benzhihe, Fan Zhendong lost his former swagger and was defeated by Zhang Benzhihe. In the end, although Guoping still relied on its overall strength, it eliminated the Japanese team and advanced to the final. However, this five-game game still made many fans sigh: Fortunately, there is only one Japanese team, Zhang Benzhi and He.
It was Zhang Benzhihe’s performance that completely stunned the Japanese media after the game. After the World Table Tennis Championships, the Japanese media "Tokyo Satellite TV" produced a ranking of men’s table tennis strength in the World Table Tennis Championships. To tell you the truth, this ranking is a bit interesting. He is convinced of the players’ victory in the World Table Tennis Championships as a basis for ranking. In other words, whoever wins more games will be in the top position. That’s right, there is such a funny situation. No one of the main players in table tennis can enter the top three. After all, the seven wins of seven battles, which are as strong as Malone’s, can only be ranked fourth because of too few wins. Fan Zhendong, the number one in the world, can’t even get into the top five in this ranking.
Not surprisingly, in this ranking, the number one player in Japan’s team is naturally Zhang Benzhi and He. He ranked first with 11 wins and 1 loss, and was called the strongest men’s singles player in this World Table Tennis Championships. The second place is Huang Zhen Ting, a Hong Kong player from China who scored 8 wins and 3 losses. The third place is Qiu Dang from Germany, whose record is 8 wins and 4 losses.
To be honest, this ranking is totally unreasonable. After all, because of the strength of national table tennis, all the five main players have strong strength, basically taking turns to play. In this way, Malone’s chances of playing will naturally be less. However, Malone only played seven games, but he won all. Just because he played a few games less than Zhang Benzhi, is he weaker than Zhang Benzhi in strength? It can only be said that this is just the self-satisfaction of the Japanese media, which specially found an angle that is beneficial to Japanese players to make such a ranking. However, it is difficult for them to think of such an angle.
