Two unmissable fixtures have been lined up for Day 14 with three medals on the line.
First, Japan eyes up a positive conclusion to its Men’s Team journey with the Republic of Korea standing between the host nation and the third step of the medals podium.
Competing in the bronze medal match at Rio 2016, the Republic of Korea experienced defeat to Germany on that occasion and will be keen to avoid the same fate in Tokyo. Japan lost out to the Republic of Korea at the 2018 World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad – which nation will emerge victorious when the two meet at 11.00 local time?
Then, from 19.30, the final match of Tokyo 2020 sees defending champion China face Germany in the gold medal play-off.
China has never lost a Men’s Team fixture at the Olympic Games and is looking to stand atop the podium for the fourth consecutive occasion, but can the impressive German team spring one of the sport’s greatest upsets?
