    Xu Xin v Zhang Jike WTTC 2013 Rubber Trimming

    So I was watching a replay of Zhang Jike and Xu Xin's game in 2013 WTTC and I noticed that after a while during the game Xu Xin's racket must've not met requirements for the game because in the middle of the game I saw him go off and trim the edges off of his rubbers. I was wondering why he did this because wouldn't they have to check his rubbers before hand?

    If I remember correctly Xu Xin hit the edge of the table during a rally which caused a tear in his rubber. That's why he had to cut off a small part of it.

    Maybe it was within the regulatory limits, but still bugging XX.

    I watched the match again and I noticed that when he was playing he didn't seem to hit the table with his racket, he seemed far away from the table.

    apparently, xu xin chipped his main racket on the table in the 3rd set, he then had to use his backup racket, and he had to trim some rubbers off to meet the regulation

    yeah, I heard that xu xin used his second blade which is Stiga..maybe he didnt prepared his second blade before the match..

    If you watch the full match it is 20:16, or 20:28 and 20:35 in replay that he hit the table slightly. He show the racket to umpire on 20:45 and 21:02 (seams like a request by ZJK on 20:23). He then was asked to replaced it with his backup. WTTC was the first tournament XX spot using the new Stiga Intensity NCT and did not perform well. May be he still need more time to get used to the new setup and certainly a hastily prepared backup won't help.

    That shows that there's some indulgency with pro players regarding the rules.
    In this case the rubber was cut a few mm bigger than the blade, for me that's not so bad.

    Notice that in 22:23 Xu Xin's backhand rubber is a Tenergy.
