Did it hit the edge or not? Quick, show me the replay!

These were the words that people were saying when Liu Shiwen was given the point, that was contested by Zhu Yuling to go up 3-2 in the Uncle Pop 2017 ITTF Women’s World Cup presented by Polar Naturals final!

Take a look for yourself below:

Right now this debate will roll on, but in the future the ITTF will be able to tell the players and fans straight away if the ball was in and out.

“We will test edge ball reviews in 2018 and look to implement at all major ITTF events in 2019,” stated ITTF CEO Steve Dainton. “We are even considering that the player can challenge any decision during the match, including the legality of the opponent’s service.”

So right now we will continue to ask each other if it was in and out, but technology will soon solve the issue once and for all!
