Just a few days to go and the Wisdom World Junior Championships are about to start in Shanghai, China!
From November 30th till December 7th, 96 junior boys and 96 junior girl will play for the title of the Junior World Champion!
Looking back in history, the winners from


Bratislava 2010 - Song Hongyuan beat Lin Gaoyuan in the final, while Zhu Yuling beat Kasumi Ishikawa;
- Boys team China beat team Japan 3:0, but chinese girls lost 3:1 to Japan!
Manama 2011 - Lin Gaoyuan lost yet another final, this time to Koki Niwa, while Zhu Yuling lost that time to Chen Meng;
- Boys team China beat team Japan again, this time 3:1, girls from China did better job, beating Japan 3:0
Hyderabad 2012 - Lin Gaoyuan lost his third final in a row, this time to Fan Zhendong, while Zhu Yuling won her second title winning over Gu Yuting;
- Both boys and girls teams China beat teams Japan. Boys 3:1 and girls 3:0;
Rabat 2013 - Jang Woojin won title after beating Zhou Kai in the final, while Gu Yuting won her second final, this time with Liu Gaoyang.
- Boys from China after tough fight beat Japan 3:2 and girls won easily 3:0.


But this time, it all happens in China!
What will the chinese crowd do to their players?
Will we have other team final than China vs. Japan??
Last time this happened was 2009 when boys team Germany managed to get into the finals, only to lose 3:0 to China.
And in 2008 it was Korea and Romania. Boys from Korea lost in the final and girls from Romania too :)

Will these championships be different?
Maybe they will!

Yuto Muramatsu from Japan and Doo Hoi Kem from Hong Kong are seeded as #1.

The ITTF will stream matches at ITTV, so we can use the integrated LIVE STREAM at TTD site.

We can use this thread to discuss about the event.

To me, this will be even more exciting, as my friend will be the only one from my country attending this event!
Fingers crossed for some great upset! ;)

Lets see how the Czech girls team will do against Puerto Rico..
And also boys against Egypt.. I hope they both win, would be great!

Czech won the first match. And because Adriana Diaz (14 yo) lost the 3rd game, her coach (her father and father of Melanie Diaz ?) didn't want to talk to her when she came back to her camp and he sent her back to the table.

I have to admit I hate this when this happens..
All matches 3:0 for china, all games for China..
That has to be boring even to them..
And most probably it is, because after the final point no huge CHOOO, not a sinlge YES or something..
Just one little clapping and .. yes, they won .. whatever..
