Career Update: Wang Hao is the reining World Team Champion!

Playing Style: Wang Hao is a right handed penhold player who bought a new style in the game table tennis. It was once thought, penholders had no backhand, but had exceptional forehands. Ryu Seung Min is a clear example of this having one the Olympics in 2004 with only a backhand block.

Wang Hao bought a new shot into the sport known as the RPB. Reverse Penhold Backhand!
This shot was first introduced by head team coach of China, Liu Guoliang. This shot allows Wang Hao to really have a great impact on the ball by both wings.

Hao's compact style and ruthless aggression allows him to dominate his player with his killer forehand and with one of the best backhands in the world. Wang has shown using the reverse side of a penhold bat can really get you places in table tennis. He was ranked 1 on the World rankings between Febuary 2008 to July 2009. Hao regained this postion in May 2009 but then lost it again due to the rise of Ma Long. A record of 27 consectuttive months Wang Hao stayed at the top for.
