2013 Euro – Asia All Stars Challenge, First Leg, March 16th and 17th, Qingdao, China

The 2013 Asia-Euro All Star Challenge will commence this weekend. Last year Europe won in a close 6-4 games against Asia to win the 2012 Europe-Asia All Stars Series Trophy. This year around we have the reigning Olympic Champion Zhang Jike representing Asia, could we see a different outcome?

The first leg will bring table tennis stars from both Continents of the world on March 16th and 17th in China’s Qingdao. This epic Series first began back in 2009, and this year the fifth year has a total prize fund of 95,000 Euros. Winning team will receive 63,000 euro's.

This year around is the strongest line up the Asia-Euro All Star Challenge series has ever seen with current world number 3 and reigning Olympic and World Champion Zhang Jike representing Team Asia!

I'm predicting the Asia team to win here, I think they are to strong in depth, however this will be one epic match up! I take it the live streaming will be on Laola1 TV?

Asia will win. a strong line up from both teams, but the asian team is better.

europe would be in with more of a shout if Timo was playing aswell, instead of chen weixing or marcos freitas.
im also slightly surprised mattenet wasnt playing, perhaps he hasnt been up to scratch recently.

there isnt a women version of this, is there?

Asia will definitely win, although it would be cool to see Europe reaching the victory. I'm kinda dissapointed with the ubsense of players like Timo boll. Let's see how they perform anyway ;)

Wow look at how tight the games of Zhang Jike-Samsonov and Jiang Tianyi-Freitas were...
I think Zhang Jike is affraid of Samsonov haha.

dici
03-16-2013, 10:28 AM
jike still on the vacatioin mood for many months. Instead for the whole match except set 2, Jike has been trailing behind, as far as 4-6 points!

In set 1, samsonov lead by 5-1 then 8-4 before jike catch up to 8-8 and go into duece
In set 2, jike is the one who leading
Then set 3, he kind of cannot focus again and samsonov take the game without as hard as set 1
set 4, jike once trail behind 4-8 or 4-9 again before he turned the game around....

Alborz

i think samsonov could do very well in the wttc this year.
granted, zhang hasnt been in what the chinese call 'systematic' training for a couple of weeks,
however, we dont know how often vladi is training either. add that to the fact he almost beat ZJK at the olympics aswell, which zhang was most certinaly training for!
plus vladi's win vs xu xin in the world cup is not to be sniffed at. the only chinese players who i think would beat vladi every time are wang hao and ma lin. even against wang hao, there is a chance..ma lin reads samsonov's game too well though...but the rest, he could beat...
so yeh...thats my pov on the matter :P samosonov could do very well come may :)

Samsonov would be the Schlager of 2003 this wttc

i would be more surprised if samsonov won this han i think anyone was when schlager won in 2003...yes no one thought schlager would beat kong and wang, but thinking about it, when he played joo that was perfect for him- playing a 21 (i think) year old defender in the final of a wttc was the perfect situation.

i think if samsonov won it would be far more impressive, but that might only be my opinion...not taking anything away from schlager of course :)

Guys you can't base results of WTTC on this cup even though players will definnitelly try to show good table tennis but this event is sort of exhibition nevertheless.

What is happening at 3:32 where Ovtcharov pulls this incredible backhand shot, I can't figure out how does it work and what angle. He tried the same year earlier in last Asia-Euro against Chuang as well but failed, you can see here.
