      Ma Long adjusted service placement based on opponent's style and match progression. For example, he made more and more serves to Tomokazu Harimoto's FH short side.

      Table Tennis World Magazine 2019 Jun Issue
      From Liu Guoliang review of 2019 WTTC


      Ma Long has the strong "rope"
      I think Ma Long made a miracle to win three consecutive men's singles title at World Championships. Before the tournament, no one dared to think about it especially because he had been injured for so long and it was even uncertain if he could attend the tournament or not. I think Ma Long is such a great player not only because of what he has achieved but also because of what he has paid and pulled through in face of injuries. When the level of his techniques is not as good as before, it is very important to rearrange his energy and physical strength. During the closed training, he attended Qatar Open and Asian Cup consecutively, it consumed him a lot to travel and adjust jet leg. But he managed to win one champion and one runner-up. He also played two individual events at World Championships. I feel that he was most pressured before the men's singles final. The whole world was watching him to make a miracle. I also encouraged him by saying so. He did it. After the match, I asked him whether he was greatly pressured. He said the pressure was too great that he felt stomachache and wanted to throw up in the morning. All in all, I am quite moved that he not only won the match but also promoted the development of table tennis worldwide.
      I think it is relatively easy to keep Chinese women's team growing strong and maintain dominance. However, I think it is impossible to make Chinese men's team as strong as women's team in a short time. We should not dream because the opponents all around the world are rising so fast and challenging so hard. Each opponent has the ability to be a threat. On one hand, we have to make some innovations and leads on techniques; on the other hand, we have to make our players stronger people. Fan Zhendong, Liang Jingkun, Lin Gaoyuan, Wang Chuqin, as well as Xu Xin should learn from Ma Long. Not to learn his techniques, but to learn his ability to read game and handle pressure. Due to frequent changes of table tennis balls, Ma Long's advantages on techniques are no longer overwhelming. But he is stronger as a person. He becomes even better to control the game and restrict every opponent on every aspect. As I said in previous commentary, Ma Long put his opponents under control just like tie Chinese mitten crabs with rope. Only Ma Long can do it. The strong rope makes him that strong.

      On Jun 14, Ma Long proceeded to the quarterfinal of men's singles at Japan Open. In the first round, he beat An Jaehyun by 4-1 (11:8, 11:8, 8:11, 11:6, 11:6). The second round was a narrow escape. He beat Jeoung Youngsik by 4-3 (11:9, 7:11, 11:9, 9:11, 9:11, 12:10, 11:5). He will face Fan Zhendong in the quarterfinal.
      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said he was prepared for a very tough match. He said he played better than the first round in terms of form and concentration. However, as he played aggressive at the beginning, he played into Jeoung Youngsik's signature game, which reminds him of the match at Rio Olympic Games. Trailing 2-3 behind, he adjusted techniques/tactics, stood more stably and played less aggressive. He thought fighting spirit and patience were the key to win at last.

      On Jun 15, Ma Long lost to Fan Zhendong by 1-4 (12:14, 6:11, 11:8, 7:11, 5:11) in the quarterfinal of men's singles at Japan Open.
      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said Fan Zhendong played very well and outperformed him today. Fan Zhendong played many powerful shots and some were beyond his expectations. He also made many unforced errors and didn't handle crucial points well.
      Ma Long is not on the entries list of Korean Open while on the list of Australian Open next month. Take a break and have a good rest!

      Last minute change! Ma Long replaces Lin Gaoyuan on the entries list of Korean Open (Jul 2-7). He is also on the entries of Australian Open (Jul 11-14). China National Championships will be held Jul 25 - Aug 2. Will he be able to attend T2 Diamond (Jul 18-21) with such a tight schedule?

      On Jul 4, Ma Long beat Takuya Jin by 4-0 (13:11, 11:6, 11:7, 11:6) in the first round of men's singles at Korea Open.


      On Jul 5, Ma Long beat host's Lim Jonghoon by 4-3 (11:5, 11:9, 7:11, 11:5, 8:11, 9:11, 14:12) in R16. He wasted 4 match points and saved 1 before taking the decider.
      https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...32611513530094
      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said his opponent played well. When he led 2-0 and 4:1 in the third game, he didn't play with full concentration and lost that game. Then the situation became tense.
      (Qid you make any adjustment in the decider?)
      Not really. Just keep fighting. No matter leading or trailing. Especially when trailing, I kept fighting. My opponent may make mistakes when he saw the opportunity to win. I have to avoid making mistakes myself.
      (Q: Do you think you won the decider with your experiences?)
      I think experiences are not that important. At the end, neither of us found very effective winning strategy. It's more important to fight point by point.

      Ma Long will face Kristian Karlsson in the quarterfinal.

      Ma Long interview after quarterfinal when he beat Kristian Karlsson by 4-2 (9:11, 9:11, 11:8, 11:3, 11:5, 11:8).
      Q: please comment on the match.
      A: It is really a tough match. Especially I managed to win when 0-2 down. That's an affirmation of my performance. I had some opportunities in the first two games but I didn't handle crucial points well at 9:9.
      Q: Do you think your opponent is difficult to play because he is left-handed?
      A: I don't think so. I met many left-handed players in tournaments. I played him once 7 years ago. During these years, he has improved a lot. I can feel his power and aggressiveness this time.

      On Jul 11, Ma Long proceeded to the next round in both men's doubles and singles at Australian Open.
      Ma Long / Lin Gaoyuan beat Japan’s Togami Shunsuke / Uda Yukiya by 3-2 (8:11, 11:8, 11:9, 4:11, 11:6).
      Later Ma Long beat Mizuki Oikawa by 4-2 (11:6, 11:6, 11:8, 9:11, 7:11, 11:7).
      After the singles match, Ma Long said his opponent is of good level as he beat Zhou Kai in the qualification. He played well in the first three games and led 9:6 in the fourth game but didn't take it as Mizuki Oikawa made changes in the later games. It is more important for him to make adjustments and win the match even if he is not in good form.

      Ma Long beat Dimitrij Ovtcharov by 4-0 (11:7, 15:13, 11:7, 11:9) and proceeded to quarterfinal. He pointed out an edge ball by Ovtcharov at his first match point when umpire missed it and gave the point to him.
      https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...32611513530094
      In the post-match interview, Ma Long said he has no secret to keep such a winning record against Dimitrij Ovtcharov (15-0). They haven't played each other for three years and Ma Long said Ovtcharov tried out new techniques and tactics. It is important that he caught up in the first two games when trailing behind. When asked about the tight schedule and travel and if he can sleep well in the hotel, he said it is tiring but that's part of the game and he will keep on. He doesn't sleep well but it is normal.

      On Jul 13, Ma Long beat Lin Gaoyuan by 4-0 (11:6, 11:7, 11:6, 11:6) and proceeded to men's singles semifinal at Australian Open.
      In the post-match interview, he said Team China is strongest so it is always hard to play with a teammate. When asked how to keep ahead while being challenged by the young generation, Ma Long said he doesn't think he is always superior to youngsters. He keeps putting himself at a low position and fights hard.


      Ma Long / Lin Gaoyuan lost to Jeoung Youngsik / Lee Sangsu by 0-3 (6:11, 8:11, 6:11) in men's doubles final.
