    Multinational Doubles Pairings?

    Can anyone think of any other multi-national doubles pairings other than the ones below?

    Ma Long/Timo Boll - 2015 & 2017 WTTC

    Wang Hao/Quentin Robinot - China Open 2013

    Jeoung Youngsik/Shang Kun & Wong Chun Ting/Zhou Qihao & Lin Yun-Ju/Zhao Qihao - China Super League 2016

    Xu Xin/Yang Haeun - 2015 WTTC

    Id like to see a Ma Long/Ishikawa Kasumi pairing play the WTTC together. That would be epic and fun.

    Xu Xin/Hirano Miu would be fun too.

    Ahh good find there.

    How do you think they even organised the pairings?

    Since these players are from different national teams, outside of league play, they would not be training with each other regularly - Xu Xin could be disadvantaged playing with Yang Haeun instead of another Chinese compatriot who he may train with far more back at the national team headquarters.

    Another 2 pairs are:

    Yan An / Dima Ovtcharov - China Open 2013
    Zhang Jike / Mattenet Robinot - China Open 2013

    Poor Zhang Jike in his doubles match against Ma Long / Timo Boll, Mattenet simply was outclassed

    ML/Kasumi very bad idea! Kazumi will be too distracted / star-struck to play anything.

    Haha to be fair, it would be pretty hard not to be

    Poor Kasumi, her comment has been taken out of context for so many years 😂
