Ding Ning made the triple

Against national team colleague Zhu Yuling, the 26-year-old world champion celebrated a 4-2 victory. Challenger Zhu Yuling lead 2-1 but after that, Ding Ning was no longer to stop.
"I did not expect to win my third title here. Much of it depended on my head, the physical conditions, and my opponents. I used to fight for titles and try to beat my opponents. Meanwhile I am the hunted and the opponents want to challenge me, "said Ding Ning

Xu Xin - master of doubles

At Men’s Doubles the chinese team celebrated the title as well. Xu Xin and Fan Zhendong took the lead in five narrow sets against Japan's Masataka Morizono and Yuya Oshima. It is the first gold medal for the 20-year-old Fan Zhendong. In 2015, the world champions were still opponents, while on Sunday they celebrated the title together. "I am very proud of this gold medal with Fan Zhendong. He has a big share in this medal. The goal was the gold medal from the beginning. There was no other option, "said Xu Xin in the press conference after the final.

No Boll, no show

It was all set for a sensation: 8000 spectators in the exhibition hall 6, which was filled to the last place, ensured an excellent atmosphere at the LIEBHERR World Championships in Düsseldorf, when Timo Boll and title defending champion Ma Long (China) met in the quarter-finals. The German fans gave everything to scream the 36-year-old for the second time after 2011 in Rotterdam in a World Champs semi-final. At the end, Boll lost 5:11, 11: 8, 4:11, 11: 5, 4:11 and 9:11, but the audience celebrated the German record champion as a winner. "I am proud of the audience. It was a lot of fun. I would have liked to return more. I tried everything and played at the limit. "
Dimitrij Ovtcharov was defetead at the round of 16 by Koki Niwa, with 13:11, 9:11, 13:11, 10:12, 5:11, 11: 9 and 9:11 "It is naturally very annoying to lose the seventh set with two points difference," said the 28-year-old subsequently. The fourth sentence was decisive, where he had two setpoints for 3-1 lead.

Ma Long is the king of Düsseldorf

He has done it: Ma Long is and remains the best table tennis player on the planet. The 28-year-old defended his world title spectated by 8000 people in the sold-out exhibition hall Düsseldorf. In the finals, he won against his countryman Fan Zhendong in thrilling seven sets.
