      This begs the question. Is Fan ever going to win WTTC? He doesn't quite seem to have it in him. Although he was very close 2 years ago. This is also bad for his aspirations to play in the Olympics.

      Great match from Liang!

      Why did he showed his right foot after the end?

      Why doesn't he seem to have it in him? He's been great the last 3 WTTC's, can he not afford one loss against #9 in the world who was in the zone?

      There should the initials of his name on the back on the shoe. ZJK did that too at the WTTC 2011 after beating WLQ.

      Pucar is a positive surprise for sure. Good ball placement, reminds me of Vladi.

      Liang JK went to the same hairdresser as Chen Meng. I guess it paid off!

      This a a cruel sport sometimes, which makes you wonder if the format of an individual world championship once every two years is a good one.

      The WTTC is a huge event. Even 6-12 months before it starts it's being talked about as the goal players are training for, and it is supposed to be the ultimate test to see who can step up in the 'big moment'. But isn't this a bit too much?

      Imagine that instead of having 4 Grand Slams every year, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic only had 1 'World Championship' every two years. That's about 6-7 top tier events with the three of them clashing against one another, as opposed to the dozens we have had. Tennis history would have been so much poorer.

      In TT, the vast majority of epic matches between all time greats is being played on the pro tour which is important but still secondary to the WTTC and Olympics. It's very easy to become an underachiever this way.

      It's exactly why the wttc means something and not feels watered out. FIFA World cup is once every 4 years and I think that is absolutely great. Players don't get many chances to leave their mark on history, there's something very beautiful about that. “The gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now."
