And more top players will soon be seen in the Russian clubs. It is believed Wang Hao has already signed a contract in Russia. To which club he will play for is not known yet.

So now we have Ma Lin in russia. The UMMC team to of Hou Yingchao, Tan Ruiwu and Michael Maze followed by great rivals Fakel Gazproma of Orenburg, where Dimitrij Ovtcharov and Vladimir Samsonov are under contract.

What do you think of this move? Will Russia be the next strongest table tennis league to the Chinese Super League in the near future?
