We caught Zhang Jike in the training hall of the Werner Schlager Academy in preparation for the 2013 WTTC. More videos, pictures, discussions and information here.

Playing Style: Zhang Jike is a right handed two winged dynamic attacker. His unique aggressive style of play puts his players on the defensive within seconds. Jike and compatriot Ma Long have dominated the table tennis scene throughout the whole of 2011 and continue to do so in 2012. Zhang has adopted one of the strongest backhands in the game, and is compared similar to the characteristics of table tennis legend Kong Linghui.

I'm pretty sure he is around 5 ft 10 in. He's a bit taller than Ma Long, who is 5 ft 9 in.
