Xu Xin is in Ma Longs half and Wang Hao and Ma Lin in Zhang Jikes half, but Zhang will not play against both. only the winner of Ma Lin - Wang Hao will play against Zhang Jike in the semifinal?

Yeah, unless they both lose before the semi finals. :p But I don't really see that happening now that Ma Lin is getting back to his old form again.

Just saw the highlight of Kasumin and Ding Ning. Kasumin did pull out a good strategy on 2nd game and took a game from Ding Ning. But from here, you can see how good is the CNT coach that he able to help Ding Ning adjust the game, and won the 3rd by 11-1. After that, the Japanese coach seems like could give a more better adjustment, although Kasumin could only pull out some what close game for the last 2 games.

There is a major difference between chinese and european commentator. European commentator will only talk about the play of each ball. But chinese commentator usually will introduce how the player trainning, analyze more about how the ball play, the previous match between two players and etc. But if you do not understand chinese, it really kind of too annoying lol

Chinese commentators know and see 10x as much as European commentators I think. So they talk more because they have more to say :p

Tomorrow's Quarterfinals:

Ma Long - Chuang Chih-Yuan
Jun Mizutani - Xu Xin
Wang Hao - Ma Lin
Seo Hyun Deok - Zhang Jike

Ma Long should sweep Chuang. Jun - Xu is an important test for in-form Mizutani. Wang - Ma is always a crazy penhold battle. Interesting to see how Zhang Jike deals with another Korean youngster, could be an important match for his place in the Olympics.

I think semi's will be Ma Long - Xu Xin (but I hope Mizutani to bring 1 non-Chinese in the semi's) and Ma Lin - Zhang Jike. So possibly another episode of the Zhang - Ma tournament finals story. :)

Kim Min Seok's backhand return to the short serve was a killer. The Chinese team never really adjusted to that return, it was like money in the bank, instant offense! I can't really remember of a shot more devastating than that!!! And to pull it of against the best players in the world! Fantastic work!

Somehow Wang Hao was the weakest link, he was not his usual self. His returns were always snagging the net. Were the Koreans using pips rubber?

Wow, I thought Kim Min Soek's team "the Giant Killer" would make it all the way. Gao Ning and Yang Zi did not look spectacular in earlier matches. Probably playing styles had a lot to do with outcomes. I can't still get over the match where Ma Long and Wang Hao were defeated by unrated 20 year olds. Beautiful match although somewhat loopsided.

I Think the four players of China reach the semi final but i would like that Jun mizutani beat xu xin..

Ma long beat CHUANG Chih-Yuan 4 - 1 (-12, 5, 5, 7, 6)
Xu Xin beat Jun Mizutani 4 - 1 (9, -10, 5, 6, 10)
Wang Hao beat Ma Lin 4 - 3 (6, -5, -9, 7, -9, 8, 9)
Zhang Jike beat SEO Hyun Deok 4 - 1 (8, -6, 6, 5, 7)

Well Ma Long defeated Xu Xin 4-0 (6, 10, 10, 3) and Zhang Jike defeated Wang Hao 4-3 (5, -8, 9, 11, -11, -8, 10)!
So Ma Long and Zhang Jike in finals...I mean this is not a surprise! The battle between the 2 continues!!

Ok so Ma Long is the winner!
He beat Zhang Jike in the final with devastating result 4:0!
Despite the score, first 3 sets were pretty close, 11:9 and 2 times 12:10..
But the last one Ma Long won 11:6 without any doubt!

Uh, oh... i haven't expected such reactions from the tt public. Jackass, idiot ? Really ? Not shaking hands means poor sportsmanship, not such things. Come on, we are talking about the world number 2, not some local club player.

Anyways, look at 4:23-4:26 it's clear that ZJK has an injury and even it this less than 7 minute clip, if you look closely you'll see him touching his left knee on several points. He didn't give 100% of himself.
