China continued its dominance at the ITTF World Table Tennis Championships Finals as Chen Meng and Wang Yidi clinched the Women’s Doubles title. The Chinese duo triumphed in three straight sets (11-8, 11-7, 12-10) over Republic of Korea’s Shin Yubin and Jeon Jihee in a thrilling final, securing yet another title for their country.
Despite the strong start by Shin and Jeon, the Chinese pair’s relentless attacks proved too much for their Korean opponents to overcome.
In the wake of their triumph, Chen Meng and Wang Yidi expressed their gratitude to their travelling supporters and dedicated the win to them. Chen Meng said, “I honestly did not expect to win this title, but Yidi and myself worked very hard together with the coaches and we are very happy to have won. We would like to thank all our fans who were present to cheer us on today.”
As the ITTF World Table Tennis Championships Finals draws to a close tomorrow, the focus now shifts to the highly anticipated Men’s and Women’s Singles events, where it will be an all Chinese affair. In the Men’s Singles Finals, Fan Zhendong will take on Wang Chuqin while Sun Yingsha will face Chen Meng at the Women’s Singles Finals.
