Watched the finals(both).. It seems to me that Harimoto's style is much more plastic ball oriented than Jun's (cause he's much younger of course). You can see the same thing in the women's part of the championship too.

ttpshot
01-21-2018, 10:01 AM
Mizutani said after the match in the press conference:

"I've played against many Chinese players and I feel that Harimoto is in the same level as them. If today's display was his norm, I don't think I'll ever beat him again."

"I'm glad I won many National Championships before Harimoto comes. Definitely the toughest match in the Nat champs."

I'm not sure Mizutani has the right attitude when facing Harimoto. Felt almost the same in this match as during WTTC, where he clearly underperformed. He stands there pretending to be composed while the kid shouts at the top of his lungs in his face. But he looks tense, mentally blocked and slow. That pisses me off just watching.

Look at the beginning of the 5th set (Mizutani down 3 sets to 1), it's a breeze: Mizutani suddenly starting to play. He's much faster, smooth, and he goes for the shots. He's in the lead 6-1, 7-2 and without much surprise he is cho-ing and smiling all throughout instead of having this stupid big bro attitude. Then he goes back to whatever it is he was doing before, still wraps up the game 11-4 or something and rightfully loses the next one.

Well, if you don't care enough about winning, go ahead and lose. But for sure Chinese players won't do this weak hearted rubbish. /rant off

ps. No disrespect for the world-class skill of these players. It's just about Mizutani's attitude against Harimoto.

I did not know that Jun Mizutani had won the past 9 Japanese national championships straight! And along comes Tomo! Oops.

There is tons of weird stuff going on in the Japan-China sports world these days. I have heard the China table tennis leaders have refused to have any more Japanese players in the Super League. That's a little severe considering it's only an hour plane ride, and Japanese players are super popular in China (a bunch of them look like cute anime characters)

one should ask if the chinese are 100% fair before questioning jun's manners. it was the olympics and he managed to beat XX a player henever won against before. besides who knows if he just was excited and taken away by the moment. ZJK also didnt shake ML's hand in 2012 but that does not mean he had a beef against ML

p.s. I didnt see any public scolding or reprimanding on yu ziyangs behavior when he clearly cheated a ball against jun. So guys please dont be one sided and check the other side of the coin also

How am I forgetting?

We have to acknowledge/not forget that MJ winning 9 National Championships is incredible. And that Tomo winning his first All Japan is incredible, especially at 14. And while we acknowledge that Tomo has an even more incredible potential given his age and what he's already achieved, that isn't to say he will for sure achieve everything he hasn't achieved yet or others have done before him. I hope he will, but one success at a time... And while I highly praise Tomo, I don't want to take away from MJ's career.

I am not one sided, that was the reason I said I wish I could have a chance to ask him. Also over excited does not mean he could do everything , and said afterward they can beat the Chinese team in Olimpic next time. If it was over excited, he would still go to shake hand with the Chinese team and coach as everybody does after the match.

dont confuse ur opinion with the actual truth. We are both making assumptions. He can say whatever he wants to say I dont see any bad manners on expressing his thought on a future win against china. What you say applies to the chinese behavior also, and there are many players that misbehaved in the CNT. ZJK liang jingkun, ma lin, yu ziyang chen qi ...so 1 neglection of a hand shake is not a big of an issue here.

Harimoto has the game to beat FZD already . The pace of harimoto's imorovement outpaces FZD 's at this point. I think FZD is at his peak. He cant improve much apart from slight tweaks or more mental strength to his game.Harimoto by 18 would be ML3.0 or 4.0 if he keeps improving at this pace.

NextLevel
01-22-2018, 05:56 PM
People underestimate the sheer power of FZD combined with his agility and consistency. FZD when he is FZD is still untouchable if you can't keep the ball short. Harimoto at his best is still a right handed Lin Gaoyuan.

Plus I think Fan will improve a lot over the next four years along with Tomo, especially in the tactics department. But I don't think the Chinese coaching is back up to the Liu Guoliang level yet. Coaching at that level has everything to do with stability and adaptability and how it plays out in the last points in each game and in the last game of the match.

It really took off in recent years. Prior to 2010, I could purchase the ticket at the door easily. Now that the full house is norm, JTTA is starting to spend more money into the event resulting in more popularity. The event staffs including umpires still don't get paid so you hear plenty of complaints every time you talked to them haha.
