Dimitrij did an interview with the german platform mytischtennis.de and he says that he plans to play doubles too while mentioning that playing with Timo Boll would be an option. What do you think about that? Those two have been dominating europe for quite some time but Boll was always teaming up with someone else (even though Dima and him are good friends).


myTischtennis.de: Wird dir deine Tochter bei der WM denn nur im Einzel oder auch im Doppel die Daumen drücken können?
Dimitrij Ovtcharov: Ich plane, auch Doppel zu spielen.
myTischtennis.de: Gibt es schon Pläne, mit wem?
Dimitrij Ovtcharov: Das ist noch offen. Es laufen Anfragen im Hintergrund. Vielleicht ja mit Timo, das wäre doch mal was…

myTischtennis.de: Will your daughter cheer for you in singles only or also doubles?

Dimitrij Ovtcharov: I plan to play doubles too.

myTischtennis.de: Any plans with whom?

Dimitrij Ovtcharov: That is still open. Requests are running in the background, maybe with Timo, that would be something...

I'd like to see him playing with Zhang Jike or maybe Zhou Yu (another Donic player). I really, really liked how Timo played with Ma Long, so sad that he met the winner so early. It was a fantastic match though.
