China’s Ma Long is the substantial ever table tennis player The mainlander won his third straight men’s singles title at the World Championship on Sunday proved himself only the second Chinese player that has attained the tremendous triumph and certainly put himself in the conversation.
At Hungexpo in Budapest, Ma who only returned to action after a nagging knee injury in March led to an eight-month absence from the international stage cruised to a 4-1 victory over Mattias Falck of Sweden in the final.
Ma said. “As a member of the Chinese team there is always pressure because of the records set by our predecessors, I want to continue with the tradition and that is why I try my best in every tournament. I think the pressure was greater in 2017 than now because I was ranked 11th for this competition and that did not give me more pressure like 2017. I have to put in my best in this final because this might be the last chance for me to win the title.”
Germany, in Düsseldorf at the 2017 World Championships Ma was the hottest player on the circuit after winning both the singles and team gold medals at the Rio Olympic Games eight months before. He managed to conquer teammate Fan Zhendong 4-3 in the nail-biting final including a 12-10 victory at deuce in the rubber game. The 30-year-old also clinched a team gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics after he was unexpectedly dropped from the singles event as the then world number one.
