      Career Update: Ma Long regains his world number 1 status in July 2013.

      Playing Style: Ma Long is a righted two winged attacker. Long is one of the most aggressive table tennis players to have lived! His two winged attack strategy with text book technique allows him to hit the ball at angles and speed that has never been seen before!

      Ma was on the World scene properly around 2007 and ever since hasn't looked back in his playing style. His 3rd ball attack and service is really what separates himself to the rest. If their is a rally of him playing, he is rarely on the defence and if he is, he would look to make an attack within seconds.

        Nice article. It's hard to think of Ma Long being number 4 in the world.! I don't think he will be there for too long, if you'll excuse the pun!

        He has a powerful style. I enjoy watching him. As much as I like Timo Boll, Ma Long will be number this year.

        Super-aggressive player!
        Rarely see him back off the table to defend, no one is capable of forcing him to do so!
        Hope he gets better and gets back to where he belongs, World's #1!

        What rubber does he use these days? I read somewhere that he has moved from a Hurricane 3 Neo to a Skyline TG3 Neo. Is this true?
