      “I feel a little strange about playing. Even having played for over ten years, I feel different today; I need two or three months to feel right about the matches. I have to improve my fluency. The number of rounds has increased for me, which requires more energy and strength. My major problem is not strength but energy. For example, before I could win playing one or two rounds. There is also doubles; more energy. Make no mistake I will take every game seriously.” Zhang Jike
      The original is a little different. Here it goes.

      http://sports.sina.com.cn/others/pin...v2044181.shtml
      “球也陌生了,虽然自己打了十多年,但是比赛感觉不一样。需要2、3个月的适应,尽快找感觉。包括在场上的感觉,第一反应还是陌生,流畅性需要加强”。此外,球的旋转下降,回合增多也使张继科面临更大的挑战,“对精力和体力的要求都高了很多。主要是精力,体能问题不大。以前可能1、2板赢了,现在的球基本要打3、4板,多板相持消耗很大”。
      "My game has gotten rusty. Despite having played for more than a decade, competitions just do not feel the same. It'll take 2 or 3 months to adapt and find the feeling as soon as possible. Including the feeling on the court, my first reaction was awkwardness, and fluidity needs to be strengthened." In addition, the rotation of the ball has decreased, and the increase of rallies have also posed greater challenges to ZJK. "The demand on concentration and physical strength is much higher. Mainly the concentration, physical fitness is not a problem. In the past, a point might finish in 1 to 2 shots. With the current ball, 3 or 4 shots are typical. Long rallies take a big toll on the body."

      Longer rallies were the goal. So ZJK declares the 40+ ball a success.

      Ishikawa seconds that. The 40+ and the subsequent ABS variants have taken a toll on her spinny style. Sayaka Hirano supports that notion as well, saying that "I may have to retire" when she first tried the 40+ ball.

      Nah, ITTF does not have any further details. I'm curious about Chen Meng's condition too. Out of all the CNT female players, I probably like her playstyle the most (Feng Yalan is great too).

      Kou Lei won against Zhou Qihao. It was a good win for Kou. Meanwhile Fang Bo bowed down to Lin Jun-Yu of TPE. I am not sure what FB is upto these days. His results are getting worse !!

      BTW, Yan An and FB are out. Lin Yun-ju and Ho Kwan Kit are the men!

      Meanwhile LJK blasted Ueda Jin 4:0. LJK has lost weight and looking quite sharp.

      Also very interesting is that LJK came back from 0-3 down vs Niu Guankai. It seems that the young one may also be getting really sharp.

      Predictions for ZJK vs Aruna?

      I'm gunna say 4-3 to ZJK.

      Hopefully it will make for a good game!

      Quadri doesn't do well against CNT tactics. Anything other than a ZJK win would surprise me and if Quadri got more than 2 games it is progress. All that said, other than the backhand dynamic, this is is his best CNT matchup.
