Table tennis enjoys a prestigious status as China's national sports, and this is once again evidenced by its strong presence at Youth Olympic Games opening ceremony. Wang Liqin was one of eight flag holders, Zhang Jike was one of six torchbearers, and Fan Zhendong took the Youth Olympic Oath on behalf of athletes.

Are they playing with the new ball?

Are they playing with the new ball?

No, they are playing with celluloid balls.

Fan Zhendong and Liu Gaoyang have both lost a set to way less ranked players.
In her match against Mukherjee Sutirtha from India, Liu Gaoyang was so so nervous. Fortunately for her, the umpire give her 4 or 5 points because of illegal serves of Mukherjee Sutirtha.

FZD about losing the 1st set against Brian Afanador:
"In the first game, I was nervous. I wanted my performance to be perfect and I made some mistakes, as a result, I lost the first set."

I dunno, to me they seem the DHS plastic balls but I could be wrong.

I've just tweeted the ITTF on Twitter. The celluloid ball is in use as the old one was used during qualification.

Honestly, unless Fan Zhendong plays less than 70%, no one else has a chance. I rate him only a touch lower than Xu Xin, who is only 0.5% weaker than Ma Long and Zhang Jike.

Actually, the first ITTF official event to use the new plastic ball will be the Belarus Open (21-24 August) :

I'm watching the reply of men single's final.

the good old commentator. I really don't appreciate him that much. the commentary full of so much BS, and talking random things over the pts. I realized later that I can switch him off though.
