In front of the Timo's home crowd in Germany today at the World Cup, Boll took on Swedish Legend Jorgen Persson in an exhibition match before the men's singles final. You can watch the final between Fan Zhendong and Xu Xin here.

To the spectators delight, this turned out to be one of the greatest exhibitions we have ever seen! Even Jan Ove Waldner was involved.... as the umpire!

Cool right?

Yeah, that was pretty good - but maybe not the most outrageous ever...I think CCY-Saive a couple of years ago, several featuring Chen Xinhua, and the Secretin-Purkart show, not to mention the Orlowski-Pansky show, are contenders.

And as for making it an Olympic event, well, it's no more crass than Rhythmic Gymnastics. Actually the ITTF used to have a thing, 'Exhibition Pairs' or somesuch, a few years back during major events, which was a kind of fun competition.
Don't knock it. It gets the attention of far more spectators who start to appreciate the skill levels in the game.
