      Ma Long received ITTF Star Awads Male Table Tennis Star for the third time! And he gave an award speech in English!



      "Good evening, everyone. First, I want to thank the ITTF for giving me this honour. I’m really happy. I never thought I could win this title again. For the last year I know what I have been through and what I have done. I have fought against my injuries for so long, but I’m feeling much better now. So, here I want to show my appreciation to my team, my family and my fans who have supported and helped me a lot. Although there are many challenges for me right now, I will always have a golden heart. Table tennis means my everything, so I will keep fighting and I will pull out all the stops and never ask for destination." – Ma Long


      Interview with ZhiboTV
      Q: You mentioned in your award speech that the past year was quite unique. Can you review the past year?
      Ma Long: In the past year, I have experienced a lot of things that were never expected in my pro career. But if we look at other sports, many great athletes face such difficulties in their career. So I have been honed.
      Q: When you was received Male Table Tennis Star previously, you won 2015 World Championships and 2016 Olympic Games. This year you won World Championships once again. Any preparations for the upcoming Olympic Games?
      Ma Long: First of all, better myself. Do my daily routine, technical training, rehabilitation and physical training. This is one essential part for a player. As for tournaments, I have to face and solve various problems on the court. But I need to build a good foundation first. I feel quite lucky to be able to return to the team by the end of the year, and catch up the pace of the team in training and competition. I think it is a good start.





      Later he updated his Sina Weibo, "A grateful 2019. In 2020, keep fighting and never ask for destination."

      On Dec 13, Ma Long beat Jeoung Youngsik by 4-2 (8:11, 11:6, 10:12, 11:2, 11:7, 11:3) and proceeded to the quarterfinal of 2019 ITTF World Tour Grand Finals in which he will face Liang Jingkun.
      For the fault serve call in the third game which he challenged but didn't succeed, Ma Long said in the post-match interview, "In the first game, the umpire gave me a warning on serve because she thought the ball was hidden by my body or head. In the second game, she called Jeoung Youngsik but I don't think he knew the reason. So in the third game when the upmire called again, I requested a challenge to see what the problem is." "I think TTR check is good for players and umpires, especially to decide edge balls and net balls since the ball speed is fast. It can help make table tennis more objective and fair." He said this is the first time that his high toss serve is regarded fault. "Well, during the match, the umpire rules. We players have to face it and pay attention later on."
      For the match, he said, "It is always hard to play with him. I had prepared for a 6 or 7-game match. Right now every victory is not easy for me. I hope I can be more positive on the court."

      On Dec 14, Ma Long beat Liang Jingkun by 4-3 (9:11, 11:8, 7:11, 11:4, 8:11, 11:9, 11:8) and proceeded to the semifinal of 2019 ITTF World Tour Grand Finals.
      During the match, Ma Long was called fault serve twice with two unsuccessful TTR checks. He told the umpire that the camera angle of the review was not as the receiver's. In the post-match interview, he said he was affected by the calls although he told himself to neglect. He will study the standards of the umpires again .
      For the match, he said Liang Jingkun is a very strong player. It was a very close game and the one who seized the opportunities won. The comeback of the tough match gave him more confidence on techniques and mindset.


      Spot the difference



      Later the day he beat Xu Xin by 4-2 (11:7, 16:14, 11:7, 4:11, 4:11, 11:6) and reached the final of ITTF World Tour Grand Finals, for the seventh time! Tomorrow he will meet Fan Zhendong.
      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said it was a very tough match and the victory very awarding. The match against Liang Jingkun earlier the day boosted his morale. He hoped he can play well in the final.

      On Dec 15, Ma Long lost to Fan Zhendong by 1-4 (6:11, 10:12, 6:11, 11:6, 8:11) in the final of 2019 ITTF World Tour Grand Finals.

      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said it was a pity that he didn't take the second game. "Leading 8:5, 10:8, I didn't make right decision for several points. Then it was a very difficult situation 0-3 down." "I am picking up form gradually. Although I lost the final, I won the previous tough matches and it is an improvement." "Fan Zhendong played very well today. He has kept improving these years. Maybe he is the best player in terms of techniques, however he still needs to win major titles."


      In the press conference after ITTF World Tour Grand Finals, Ma Long recapped the final, "First, congratulations to Fan Zhendong to win the title with such an unstoppable form! I think he did better than me to establish a lead from the beginning. I didn't seize the opportunity at 10:8 in the second game. It was not a positive situation 0-3 down although I tried to find some answers. During the tournament, I've improved bit by bit. It was not easy for me to win the previous rounds. I am quite satisfied with the result that I reached the final."Fan Zhendong recapped, "I took the initiative from the start, which was better than before. I carried out plans firmly. I made good preparations before the final, and prepared how I should handle with leading or trailing. I am very happy that I won. However, I am aware that I still need to learn from Ma Long, like how he tried to solve problems on the court."



      When asked to divide 2019 season into several stages and review respectively, Ma Long said, "In the first three months of 2019, I was fighting against injuries and recovering. I wasn't able to attend training. My actual 2019 season was from late Mar to Jul during which I played most of the matches this year. After July, I experienced another recovery stage. Now I return to the team and I am able to keep pace with the team. I return to the court. I think it is a good sign."

      In the press conference, Ma Long also talked about his injury recovery plan, "I discussed with CTTA officials and coaches. I wanted to spend time this year to recover from injuries, to enable me to train and compete at a regular basis next year." CTTA president Liu Guoliang told Table Tennis World Magazine, "I think it is amazing that Ma Long has recovered so well from injuries. He made to the final. It is no surprise to many that he lost to Fan Zhendong. I believe his body will get better and better, as well as the techniques, the mentality and the feelings of match". Let's wish Ma Long a speedy recovery!
      In his ITTF Star Award speech, Ma Long said, "I know what I have been through and what I have done." Liu Guoliang said during 2019 Team World Cup, "Outsiders don't understand what he has pulled through. Only a few people witnessed." So we might never know what Ma Long really experienced from those days away from the court. Something we know from news reports and insiders' commentary is that Ma Long had knee surgery since knee fluid aspiration, acupuncture or physical therapy did not really solve his knee problems which were under control before World Championships and broke out again afterwards. The surgery was likely in late Aug and Ma Long started to attend training in late Oct and attend singles events in late Nov. Deng Yaping, when commentating 2019 Men's World Cup, said, "Generally speaking, after surgery, Ma Long should take 3-month rest with no sport activity, then 2-month training and another month to find the form to compete. Ma Long is speeding now." Although the result was not ideal, Ma Long left Men's World Cup without a medal for the first time, Deng Yaping said, "The result of World Cup will not affect much on Olympic Games. Now supporters of Ma Long should wait and Ma Long should take care of his body."

      Times are behind every breath-holding moment to spin the serve. Times are behind every heartbeat for pivot attack. When Ma Long is more than Ma Long, he can become Full Grand Slam winner. Always keep in mind the initial goal, this attitude of Chinese National Team makes the killing shot. This era is ever-changing like a table tennis match. I am ready to play at any time. Beat time and beat myself. Welcome to the era of Ma Long.

      Ma Long appears on the cover of Jan 2020 issue of Table Tennis World Magazine, as the Character of the Year 2019.



      Does anyone know what kind of surgery left a scar like this? A knee replacement? There are two more smaller scars on the side from arthroscopy.

      Jan 10 is Liu Guoliang's birthday. As usual, Ma Long sent his best wishes. Liu Guoliang posted on Sina Weibo, "My world is simple (family and table tennis). My birthday wish is known to all (China wins gold)." Ma Long reposted, "Happy birthday to President. May your wish come true."




      On Jan 13, Team China players, coaches as well as staff started military training in suburb of Beijing.
      Ma Long shares the dorm with Yan An, Fang Bo and Zhou Yu.
