      I agree that Yan played to FZD f/h and tried to keep it away from his b/h. I think FZD prefers to win points with his back hand. Yan An kept FZD guessing so he couldn't get into position to play his b/h, especially on serves.

      Yan An looked so comfortable against Fan Z.D.

      Yan was able to survive the powerful backhands from Fan and force forehand shots out of Fan.
      Yan's game plan must have been to win points with the forehand, from watching the match Yan had a better forehand where as Fan had a better backhand. However, Yan was able to execute his gameplan better and win the match.

      Terrific tournament! Too bad that European stars skipped it. Fan Zhendong and Zhou Yu played a spectacular quarterfinal match, and the semifinal match between Fan and Xu Xin was a pure delight to watch.

      Yan An displayed some truly superb table tennis and deserved the title.
