Sun Yingsha edges crazy battle to ramp up pressure on host nation

Women’s Teams: Final

Wow! What a match! Sun Yingsha has put Team China 2-0 to the good against hosts Japan following an intense duel with Mima Ito.

It was Ito that looked on course to take the win, gaining a two games lead and needing just one more to complete the job. However, back-to-back game successes and three match points saved in the deciding game, Sun Yingsha turned the match around (8-11, 9-11, 11-6, 11-7, 12-10) to move China ever-closer to another title.

Narrow margins but Team China ahead

Defending champions China are ahead in the women’s team final thanks to a narrow but decisive doubles victory in the match opener.

Chen Meng and Liu Shiwen carried out the honours for China, beating Kasumi Ishikawa and Miu Hirano in straight games (11-7, 11-9, 12-10). Now it’s time for Sun Yingsha and Mima Ito to meet in the first singles affair – can hosts Japan make an immediate response?

World #1 makes China #1 again

Men’s Teams – Final

Fan Zhendong has successfully helped men’s Team China defend their Team World Cup title here in Tokyo as he beat Lee Sangsu in straight games (11-8, 11-4, 11-8) to win the match 3-1 (2-3, 3-0, 3-2, 3-0). Fan was in superb shot-making form which saw his opponent unable to gain a measure of control over the match – even on his serve.

The Korea Republic team has been extremely diligent in their challenge against the favorites China, and came ever so close to upsetting the behemoth. They can certainly take heart and pride in their performances, as well as a deserved silver medal.

Team China have taken the lead for the first time in this men’s final as Liang Jingkun won a five-game thriller against Jeoung Youngsik 3-2 (11-9, 8-11, 10-12, 15-13, 11-8).

There was a huge roar at the Chinese bench with this victory, because Youngsik had clearly ruffled the feathers of Team China. With the overall score 2-1 against Team Korea Republic, can Lee Sangsu make the match even more exciting by winning against Fan Zhendong?

The face of relief: Liang Jingkun.
Another comeback, another decider!

Well that certainly has put the cat amongst the pigeons! Despite Liang Jingkun’s early win, Korea Republic’s Jeoung Youngsik has given his side a chance at taking the control of the final by making another comeback against Team China as their singles’ tie is level at 2-2.

Leading by a game, Liang looked to have the tie under his belt before Youngsik spun the table on it’s head. Taking the next two games, Youngsik took a slender lead which was then swiftly cut by Liang. Who will blink first in the decider?
