    Miu Hirano creates history winning the Asian Championships 2017!

    Unbelievable scenes in China today as Japan's Miu Hirano who is just 17 years old becomes the 3rd ever non Chinese player to win the Asian Championships defeating 3 Chinese players along the way!

    Miu eliminated Ding Ning in the quarter final, Zhu Yuling in the semi final and Chen Meng in the final! Miu's celebration is absolutely brilliant!

    The Final Moments! Women's Final



    Watch the highlights unfold in the video below:



    A new star has been born!

    LIU Shiwen was very lucky to beat HIRANO. She was up 8-5 in the 4th set and had all the momentum with her, but at 8-6, HIRANO was leading the rally again, but LIU managed to make a very very lucky block which touched the edge of the table... That stopped the momentum of the Japanese.

    To be honest, HIRANO had a lot of luck against DING Ning as well, one of the 5 match points she saved was with a FH attack along the line, which actually touched the edge of the table... Thats how a champion was born

    I think her smaller size help her to move pretty fast, especially on her BH where she is very strong....

    Chen Meng bh is good but not as fierce as Hirano... faster.

    @Takkyu : If you find some interview of Miu , please see if you can get the time to translate for us ... I know she was saying some things after the match , but not sure if it was relevant ...

    If you look at the whole video, there are some fun facts:

    - LIU Shiwen and ZHU Yuling stop cheering for CHEN Meng and leave their seat [to go to the award ceremoney] BEFORE the end of the match. They didn't believe CHEN would make a comeback and didn't really care...
    (anyway i never really saw LIU cheer at all...)
    - HIRANO received some kind of chocolate box (lol) first , then a medal, and the cup at last. The first 2 officials, the one who gave the box and the one who gave the medal, coldly shook hands, looked embarassed to be there, gave the stuff and quickly left. Only the last official gave a real handshake and seemed to give a word of congratulations, and saved honour for Chinese politeness.
    - KONG Linghui at the end didn't seem too harsh with CHEN Meng. She already had the face of a loser during the game, you could feel she was very nervous. After all, CHEN is below DING and about the same than ZHU, so it was not a surprise to the same HIRANO that beated her colleagues.

    ok. Don't worry. Its a shame, the match was not on Japanese TV, the stars are Ishikawa and Fukuhara. But she's the new star, and from tomorrow her face will be everywhere on TV, and she will be invited in every possible TV show to do stupid things.

    Yes I noticed all that ... only Cai Zhenhua at the end and KLH after the match was mature enough to show some politeness ... the other officials , except the lady were very mechanical ... actually with all the players if you notice ...

    yes KLH bowed and reached for her. That was nice from him. Also she celebrated quite shyly. She's only a 17yo kid. How can one be mean with her ?

    You do know that the coaches area is higher than the playing area?
    If KLH didn't bow forward, there is no ways he could reach her hand

    Imo, these new digital surrounds are too deep (causing coach and player to be further apart) and it is too high, causing coach/teams to sit in a higher position than normal

    Looking forward to WTTC and Tokyo 2020
    Miu has been improving every 3 to 4 months
    She can only get better and get more confidence.
    Her style is more complete, she is more aggressive and will only get more power.

    Her serves will need to improve and she now faces a big group of Chinese tt scientist studying her.
    Same token, she has Japanese TT scientist aiding her too

    It amazes me what Japan can do in 15 years, the rest of the world can't
