      Liam Pitchford vs Alexey Smirnov

      --- To all English Table Tennis fans and Liam Pitchford fans World Wide! ---

      I remember when Liam Pitchford defeated Alexey Smirnov in the European Championships last year many people wanted to see the match. This dream is now possible thanks to FanTTW of youtube! We can all enjoy and watch this incredible match unfold. The match went to the wire with the seventh set being 12-10!

      The last set is fantastic, with some incredible touch to touch rallies with some nice flicks and open attacks. Liam is also intereviewed at the end of the match by FanTTW.

      Bare in mind everyone that Liam Pitchfords World Ranking was 269 and Alexey Smirnov was 20!

      Enjoy the match!

      Keep an eye out for this this young lad!

      Nice victory Liam.
      I love how the Russian pronounces Lie-am in the interview at the end, haha.
      Great work though. Hoping to see an English player break through the top 100 this year, and everyone knows Mr Pitchford has the most potential to do so!

      Insightful interview with Ovcharov

      There is a long (and very insightful) interview I found on that same link that the Russian chap had with Dimitri Ovcharov in Russian. I can translate and write/post it on here if you guys are interested. They discuss everything from his childhood, what he eats, to girls and cars) let me know if you guys will be interested, then I will go ahead and do it.

      For sure, the way Liam is going he can go really far! He could cause some major upsets at the World Team and Olympics if he goes!

      Liam's got some promise for England, but it all comes down to how many upsets he can get this year to join the top 100. He definitely is there skill wise, but there are a lot of young up and comers that are there too. If he can't get the upsets needed he'll not be able to rank up that quickly.
