Team Captain of Zhejiang: Ma Lin vesus Team Captain of Bazhou: Xu Xin​


This final will have three epic legs to battle it out for the Chinese Super League champions.

First leg: 4th September
Second leg: 8th September
Third leg: 10th September

Zhejiang would have gone into the final with the strongest team on paper, including Olympic Champion Ma Lin, European superstar Timo Boll and Hao Shuai. However, Timo Boll has returned to Germany as his contact has ended due to his commitments in the European league. This gives the Bazhou team a good chance to stand against this formidable side.


Starting line up

Zhejiang's Team - Ma Lin, Hao Shuai, Xu Hui and Zhang Yibo

Bazou's Hairun Team - Xu Xin, Li Ping, Lui Qinglei and Zhai Chao

Interesting, I was only able to see the last set of the match between Ma Lin and Xu Xin. Li Ping has always been on the cusp of being able to represent China on an International level. It must be disappointing for him to lose the critical match.

Ma Lin vs Xu Xin... great match.. Xu Xin's reverse backhands = big problems for Ma Lin and his power for forhand topspin is something special. I like Ma Lin more than Xu Xin but this time younger player was better.

Oki, so I found an article about this and its really over, 3:1 for Bazhou..
Hao Shuai lost to Cui Qinglei, Ma Lin beat Xu Xin, .. so two surprises for the beginning..
But then Bazhou won the doubles and Xu Xin beat Hao Shuai, so all over and 1:1 ..
Who knows what the third leg will bring..

Link is here: Zheijang vs. Bazhou leg 2
