    If you say Ma Long is just in bad form, then i'm cool
    But making all these excuses is just really excuses.
    Ma Long took it very serious but he just had no answer to Lin BH winners and Lin's close to table off the bounce attacks
    It has nothing to do with this "fake" match, or "special" rules
    It is like saying that rule changes affect someone who had been playing for 20 years the same way your affect someone who has been playing for 5 years. The score of the real match was 2-2. Alternate serving without ending the match is a feature of expedite and Ma Long is not a defender. Ma Long depends on his serve heavily so one serve instead of 2 affects his serving patterns.

    Credit to Lin for playing well. But the scoring system for fast 5 is not a real match. The real match was 2-2. Lin won the tie breaker but inam also one of those people who considers CSL first to seven in the 5th matches and Russian league matches without deuce fake matches. When we start playing those formats in the Olympics I will change my mind.

    I do not agree with you. I gave the arguments why the new rules fail. You suggest simply not to discuss it. Ridiculous.

    New ranking system is ok. But this does not mean that all other changes are also automatically good.

    I argue that the second type (equal game) is more interesting.

    Similarly, matches. The overwhelming advantage (4-0, 4-1) and equal fight (4-2, 4-3). And again, I assert that equal fight is more interesting.

    A separate intermediate case when 4-0, but in all games equal fight is 11-9 or something like that, but for now we’ll omit this option.

    So, if you look from this point of view - an equal fight is more interesting - the new rules of the game at the T2 tournament reduce the time of the competition almost exclusively due to interesting games and matches, and practically do not affect less interesting games with an overwhelming advantage.

    Thus, I argue that the "average interest of competition" due to these rules decreases, since everything that is boring remains, and the interesting is greatly cutted.

    And that means (for me) unsuccessful rule changes.

    Does anyone see flaws in these arguments?
    I think that there is excitement in variation sometimes and that the shorter games introduce a larger degree of variation. I suspect that they will play with the T2 formula a bit more before the next event. I think they might give more time to regulation as of they want more best of 11 games. But I don't see anything wrong with the current format as it allows players to control risk (win in 4 or amass a lead) and gives the player behind a chance at the end of the match if they can take advantage of risky streakiness.

    since you raise chinese super league with 7 point.
    I'm going to end with that Ma Long and other CNT members are more equip with these rules than any other player.

    In closed training they have been doing 8-8 or 7-8 or 6-8 come backs to 11 (no deuces) for how many years now, maybe 5-10 years already.

    So for Ma Long who can't even adapt to his own training method, and his many years of experience with the 7 point
    then yeah, Ma Long is just not good enough

    Seriously how can you argue that it wasn’t a real match? It’s gentlemen’s sport. You agree on the rules and play the match. The winner wins. Simple as. It doesn’t matter if you play to 5, 11, 21 or tennis styled scoring.

    But you forget that those training methods are not the same as this format. In the end, I know what you think. You know what I think let's agree to disagree. Alternate serving, no deuce, is unlike anything in table tennis. It doesn't mean that Lin didn't win or Ma Long didn't choke but that this is not a standard (real) match. When it was real, the score was 2-2. In any alternate serving system that is not expedite in TT, the match ends when you win two or three consecutive points.

    Ma Long had enough training of no deuces in match practices.
    He has so much more resource to get to be a GOAT
    one small little thing that is new to him is new to everyone else.
    What I am saying is, Ma Long has more advantage to this than Lin, and i'm sure you can't deny this.
    Lin till this day has not experience 7, and where he trains, he doesn't have much resources at all.

    Also NL, you better get used to ITTF and its habit of changing rules every year or two.
    Change is coming (i'm afraid)
    I hope that in your eyes, your real is not defined by 38mm in 21 point with all the other bunch of old rules
    The real TT to me is what is happening now and as a coach, my job is to get the players to adapt to what ever is expected. No excuses.

    In my opinion its clearly ML was injury. He almost couldn't move. He barely move and bend his right leg

    I rarely hear people hypothesizing about non-Chinese players being injured as the justification for their losses.

    I dont understand why the so called "shorter option - T2" would be taken seriously. Its not like the "longer format - 11 pts" takes hours on end to complete a game. Endurance of the athlete should also be tested.

    The T2 match scoring format provides the underdog with a better opportunity to pull off an upset.

    ML is a very deliberate player, lots of time taken between points, touching the table, bouncing the ball, etc. as he continues to analyze the match situation and deploys changes to tactics that aren't working. The points in T2 matches are being played very rapidly with hardly any delays. IMO this impacted ML's normal playing rhythm and affected him more than changes in the scoring system.

    That coupled with his obvious exhaustion and fighting off some injuries alluded to by XX, ML had a lot of things stacked against him in this event.

    Just my observations, not excuses for ML's loss. His level is so high that he frequently is able to overcome these things. However, LJY played very well and didn't let ML off the hook and grabbed a very well deserved victory.

    Weikert said back in 2014 that TV broadcasters didn't want to carry table tennis because they didn't know how long matches could last. T2 offers an alternative.

    https://www.sportcal.com/News/FeaturedNews/99567
    Weikert is also keen to explore possible means of limiting the duration of matches to provide more certainty for broadcasters, some of which presently baulk at the present system in which matches can last between one and three hours.

    He said: “One set lasts six or seven minutes. Maybe you can shorten it by making the next point decisive after 10-10 [at present a player must win a set by at least two clear points]. These are only ideas, they’re not tested. We have to take care about it. But TV and internet streaming is the future, so it’s worth thinking about small changes.”

    I feel like although ML directed his annoyance towards the 'format' of the tournament, he was probably more pissed at himself.
