      3 weeks ago Harimoto played Fan Zhendong at the World Team Cup, where Fan from China outplayed the Japanese wonder kid. This left people to doubt the boys ability even though the wonderkid is only 14 years of age and has only just started his sensational career. Yesterday however the 14 year old talent took out Fan Zhendong in 4 sets with scores 11-8, 8-11, 11-9, 11-8. This is massive news for team Japan as their World Team Championship campaign begins at the end of this month!

      Watch the MATCH unfold below between Japan's Tomokazu Harimoto and China's Fan Zhendong!

        well played, Harimoto! You are improving faster than expected. I wonder did Fan Zhendong lost to him on purpose?

        I think Fan Zhendong had a emotional issue thinking: "Will I loose the game to a child?"
