A Golden Day for Japan�s Boys at Funchal Junior Open



Japan dominated the male events in the Funchal Junior Open, clinching gold in both the Boys� Singles and Boys� Doubles events on Thursday 3rd September 2009.

Kohei Morimoto, seeded no.2, won the Boys� Singles title, whilst Kohei Fujimoto and Asuka Machi, secured the top prize in the Boys� Doubles competition. Kohei Morimoto, the Boys' Singles winner in Madeira

At the final hurdle Kohei Morimoto defeated top seed, Iran�s Noshad Alamiyan in six games to secure the top Boys� Singles prize.

He won 11-6, 9-11, 5-11, 11-6, 11-4, 11-9.

Compatriots Adversaries
However, in the Boys� Doubles event he had to settle for silver.

Partnering Masahiro Otsuka, the pair suffered against their compatriots Kohei Fujimoto and Asuka Machi who won a hard fought six games duel 11-4, 11-13, 11-2, 9-11, 11-6.

Journey to Final
Nevertheless, I doubt Kohei Morimoto would change his Boys� Singles gold for Boys� Doubles gold and it was third time lucky.

On the ITTF Junior Circuit in Sweden and Australia he had to settle for silver.

On his way to the Boys� Singles final, Kohei Morimoto had impressed beating Germany�s Niklas Matthias in his opening duel before defeating the latter�s colleague, Christoph Schmidl in the quarter-finals and colleague Kaito Fujimoto in the semi-finals.

At the same stages Noshad Alamiyan had accounted for Germany�s Arne Holter, Japan�s Asuka Machi and France�s Romain Lorentz.

Journey to Final
Meanwhile, in the Boys� Doubles event, en route to the final, Kaito Fujimoto and Asuka Machi had beaten the German partnership of Arne Holter and Christoph Scmidl in the quarter-finals before recording a semi-final victory over top seeds, Romain Lorentz and Quentin Robinot of France.

Success against the top seeds and it was a similar scenario for Kohei Morimoto and Masahiro Otsuka; not seeded they defeated second seeds, Iran�s Noshad Alamiyan and Chile�s Felipe Olivares in the quarter-finals before ousting fourth seeds, the host nation�s Diogo Carvalho and Diogo Pinho in the semi-finals.

Rehearsal for the World Championships with top stars



The Russian Table Tennis Federation and the city of Moscow will make a real rehearsal for the 2010 World Championships in middle October, when �Druzhba� Sports Hall inside the famous Luzhniki Complex is ready to welcome the participants of the LIEBHERR 2009 Men�s World Cup.
The traditional world title event introduces a new format this year. The number of players is increased from 16 to 19. Beside the six continental representatives and the host nation�s best player, the top 11 players are invited according to the September World Ranking and the world�s No.1 junior (U-18) player completes the list as one of the Wild Card selections.

Illustrious players'list

The players� list is illustrious and colourful. China, Germany, Japan and Korea can make use of the maximum quota of 2 players per association. Ma Long from China is the highest ranked contender, No.2 on the latest ranking, while Oceania�s representative, Robert Frank could be very proud to compete at such an event listed as No.588 at the moment.

New winner after two years

In 2009 the door is open for challengers, because the hero of the last two years, Wang Hao who was unbeaten at the World Cups in 2007 and in 2008 will miss the tournament this year. The newly crowned world champion needs a rest after a tiring long season. However, China looks still very strong with Ma Long and Chen Qi on board. Timo Boll who is recovering slowly from his back injury had an unbelievable run four years ago when he took the title in Liege beating three Chinese opponents on route to victory. The younger generation is also strongly represented by Ma Long, the German No.2 Dimitrij Ovtcharov and the freshly crowned Korean Open champion, Jun Mizutani, as well as another �wonder boy� from Japan, Kenta Matsudaira who was a Junior World Champion at the age of 15 and extended the Olympic Champion Ma Lin to a seven-games match at the H.I.S. World Championships in Yokohama. The only player who has a singles World Championships title under his belt is the Austrian legend, Werner Schlager.

Intercontinental Cup is launched

The playing system has been modified compared to the previous years. Instead of drawing all players in groups in the first stage, the competition will start with the Intercontinental Cup. The four continental representatives from Africa, Latin America, North America and Oceania will compete in one group, and the winner of the Intercontinental Cup will qualify to the next stage of the event, joining the other 15 players.
The LIEBHERR Men�s World Cup is offering US$150,000 in prize money.

You will find attached :
- the Prospectus/Invitation (PDF) about the event with the schedule included.
- the Travel/accommodation form (XLS) to be sent back to the Russian Federation not later than : 25th September, 2009

Final Preparations for Euro Mini Cadet Championships


Last minute preparations for the 5th Euro Mini Table Tennis Championships were the order of proceedings on Thursday 27th August 2009 in Schiltigheim.

Also it was last minute homework for the ITTF World Hopes Team as they prepared for the ensuing competition.

A very impressive 40 national associations will be represented at the four day tournament staged in the Gymnase Malteries and, as the members of the World Hopes Team practised, players from throughout Europe and beyond assembled.
Prominent publicity in the streets of Schiltigheim for the Euro Mini Championships
It is a major event and Schiltigheim is clearly well equipped to stage international tournaments that involve a high number of entrants.

The tournament was prominently advertised throughout the city and of course everybody was made welcome.

Reception
In the afternoon a reception for team leaders was been held, hosted by the President of the French Table Tennis Federation, Alain Dubois�, explained Zita Pidl, the ITTF World Hopes Team Manager. �Also, several high ranking personnel from Strasbourg and Schiltigheim were present.�

Meanwhile, later in the day, it was down to business.

Valuable Meetings
�We had a meeting with Mikael Andersson about future plans and the concept of the World Hopes Team programme�, said Zita Pidl. �Also, Olga Nemes gave an insight into her life, her career, the problems she faced and her journey from Romania to Germany.�

Listening to Olga Nemes is always spell binding; it is a life story from which the members of the ITTF World Hopes Team can learn and the coaches can learn as well, Olga Nemes is a very caring person who has a great desire to help others.

In Schiltigheim, she is doing just that very well indeed.

KAL Cup Korea Open


A most welcome entrant at the KAL Korean Open in Seoul is the group of players from Africa’s Democratic Republic of Congo.

Three male players are present – Beni Lukatikisu, Djodjo Nkunda Baluengele, Jonathan Bizaku – all are young players, having competed in the Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles and Under 21 Men’s Singles events.

Life has been tough in the playing arena in a country steeped in table tennis excellence but undoubtedly they have learnt from the Korean experience.

Surprised
“I was very surprised when we received an entry from the Democratic Republic of Congo”, said Do Cheon Park, a member of the Organising Committee at the KAL Korean Open and also a member of the ITTF Board of Directors.

“They arrived at the very last moment, in fact one day late”, reflected Do Cheon Park. “It took them six days for them to get here; they left Kinshasa and flew to Bangkok where they stayed three days, they had visa problems.”

Extra Days
However, eventually, they arrived.

“When we heard of the troubles they had experienced, the media soon became interested”, continued Do Cheon Park. “They made a great effort to travel to Seoul, so on the instructions of Cho Yang Ho, the President of the Korean Table Tennis Association, I am delighted be able to offer our guests from Kinshasa and extra two days in Seoul.”

Cho Yang Ho is the President of Korea Air, the sponsors of the ITTF Pro Tour tournament in Seoul.

Training with Koreans
“The level of their play is not that of Asian players but they are eager, they are motivated and they want to improve”, concluded Do Cheon Park. “Therefore, when the tournament finishes, they will have the opportunity to practise with Korean players.”

Sport is about competition but it is also a vehicle for peace, harmony and friendship; a fact clearly being demonstrated by the Korean Table Tennis Association.

It is a fine gesture.

China Open



Seven players who had negotiated the qualification stage of the Men�s Singles event at the China Open in Tianjin started proceedings in the second round on Friday 14th August 2009 full of hope; when the round was completed it was despair.


All seven suffered defeat in a series of exchanges where in each contest the higher world ranked player prevailed.

It was the end of the road for Chinese Taipei�s Chen Chien-An, Russia�s Grigori Vlassov, England�s Andrew Baggaley, China�s Li Ping, Japan�s Koki Niwa and the Koreans Han Ji Min and Kim Gang Woong.

World Champions Meet
Top seed China�s Wang Hao put an end to any aspirations that Chen Chien-An may have harboured in the contest between the reigning World champion and reigning World Junior champion.

Wang Hao won in four straight games 14-12, 13-11, 11-6, 12-10; whilst Japan�s Kenta Matsudaira, a former owner of the World Junior title, defeated Han Ji Min in one game more.

He won 11-5, 6-11, 11-6, 11-5, 11-4.

Similar Vein
In similar vein Hong Kong�s Cheung Yuk, the no.7 seed, defeated Grigori Vlassov with the loss of only a single game (4-11, 11-7, 11-7, 11-4, 11-5) whilst also in the top half of the draw, Cheung Yuk�s compatriot, Tang Peng, seeded no.10, defeated Andrew Baggaley.

Tang Peng won in six games (7-11, 11-6, 11-6, 9-11, 11-6, 12-10).

Korean Recovery
A six games win for the higher rated player and it was the same for Korea�s Lee Jung Woo who had to recover from a two games to nil defiocit against Koki Niwa. Eventually the tall Korean left handed penholder won 7-11, 8-11, 11-2, 11-3, 11-5, 11-5.

Defeats for five qualifiers in the top half of the draw and reverses for two in the lower half.

End for Li Ping and Kim Gang Woong
China�s fourth seeded Hao Shuai accounted for colleague Li Ping (11-9, 11-3, 8-11, 12-10, 11-7) whilst Austria�s Chen Weixing ended the adventures of Kim Gang Woong.
The Austrian defender with a powerful forehand topspin won 11-6, 9-11, 11-5, 11-8, 11-5.

Same Situation
Success on each occasion for the higher ranked player and it was the same situation in all the other Men�s Singles second round contests.

China�s Ma Lin, seeded no.2 and Wang Liqin, seeded no.3 enjoyed trouble free confrontations.

The former beat Chinese Taipei�s Wu Chih-Chi (6-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-7, 11-7, 12-10); whilst the latter overcame Poland�s Jakub Kosowski in two games less, he won 11-6, 11-6, 11-6, 11-5.

Japanese Sorrow
In the remaining matches Chinese Taipei�s Chiang Peng-Lung proved too strong for Japan�s Taku Takakiwa, Korea�s eighth seeded Ryu Seung Min was too fast for Japan�s Hidetoshi Oya whilst Chinese Taipei�s Chuang Chih-Yuan, seeded no.6, was to consistent for Seiya Kishikawa, also from Japan.

Sorry for Japan and there was more. China�s Zhang Jike defeated Kazuhiro Chan whilst to conclude proceedings it was success for Hong Kong against Singapore.

Closest Result
Jiang Tianyi defeated Yang Zi in the only second round match to go the full seven games distance. In a titanic struggle Jiang Tianyi prevailed 8-11, 11-7, 11-7, 5-11, 11-5, 5-11, 12-10.


The second round of the Men�s Singles event saw the departure of Koki Niwa but not without a fight; he won the first two games against Lee Jung Woo before experience told and the Korean marched forward.

China’s Wang Hao, Ma Lin and Wang Liqin plus Korea’s Ryu Seung Min, the players who have shared the Men’s Singles title at the Olympic Games and World Championships since 2004, are the star names on duty at the China Open in Tianjin, the latest stop on the ITTF Pro Tour.

Out of Form
There was no medal for the Korean in either Beijing at the Olympic Games or at this year’s H.I.S. World Championships in Yokohama; whilst likewise on the ITTF Pro Tour, his results have been below par.

Hong Kong Junior Open

Sixteen year old Chen Xi, who earlier in the day had booked his place in the semi-finals of the Boys’ Singles event by beating Chinese Taipei’s Chen Chien-An, the no.1 seed and reigning World Junior champion, brought matters to a conclusion in the Boys’ Team event at the Hong Kong Junior Open on Saturday 8th August 2009.

In three straight games he beat Hong Kong’s Cheung Yat Fung to secure victory for China after Feng Ji had defeated Chiu Chung Hei and Zhou Yu had overcame Wong Chun Ting.
It was yet another emphatic victory for the Chinese teenagers who were never seriously threatened at any stage.
They won every fixture by three matches to nil.
Equally Ruthless
At the semi-final stage they were equally ruthless beating Chinese Taipei by three matches to nil with Chen Chien-An suffering again.
He was beaten by Feng Ji in three straight games after Zhou Yu had recovered from an opening game deficit to defeat Chang Shun-Hung.
The contest concluded with Chen Xi defeating Hung Tzu-Hsiang; however, the rising Chinese Taipei star was tested, the contest going the full five games distance.
Similar Scenario
Meanwhile, in the counterpart semi-final of the Boys’ Team event it was a similar scenario with Hong Kong recording a three-nil victory over the combined team of Japan’s Yuto Higashi, Naoki Matsuda and Egypt’s Omar Assar.
Chiu Chung Hei beat Yuto Higashi in three straight games before Wong Chun Ting posted a close five games success against Omar Assar and Cheung Yat Fung defeated Naoki Matsuda.
Emulated Girls
It was gold for the Chinese boys who in clinching victory emulated their female counterparts, some 15 minutes earlier the Chinese girls had secured the top prize.
Once again the superb Chinese were the champions.

Silver medal in the Boys’ Team event for Chiu Chung Hei (left) and Cheung Yat Fung (right).

Table Tennis and the 2009 California State Games



Jasmine Nguyen and Brana Vlasic


Congratulations to all of the table tennis winners of the 2009 California State Games.

The 2009 Opening Ceremonies was a spectacular night event on Friday July 17, 2009 when “every athlete was treated like an Olympian.” It was an unusual experience for all table tennis participants at the California State Games in San Diego on Sunday 19 July 2009. It was not just about winning but also about friendship and sportsmanship. The facility at the Balboa Park Activity Center was excellent and the organizers were extremely flexible and friendly. In the Women Open Singles, Brana Vlasic won the Gold Medal and Jasmine Nguyen won the Silver Medal; in the Men Open Singles, Earl J Alto won the Gold Medal and David Umel won the Silver Medal.

In the U15 and U17 events, Justin Nguyen advanced to First Place for the Gold Medal and Anson Kahng won the Second Place title in the U15 Boys event; Justin Nguyen won the second place in the U17 Boys event after an upset by David Flores; and Jasmine Nguyen took the Gold Medal for the U17 Girls.

Asian Junior Championships



The 15th Asian Junior Championships concluded yesterday with China’s Cao Lisi winning the Girls’ Singles event and Korea’s Kim Min Seok prevailing in the Boys’.

ITTF Executive Director of Education and Training, Mikael Andersson, writes regularly about young players on different continents and their progresses.

This time he posted some thoughts about the Chinese-Korean rivalry, the first Youth Olympic Games in 2010 and why North Korea made a crucial step forward.

Prepare for the Youth Olympics
On the dedicated page for the Asian Junior Championships, you will not only find all the results from the event in Jaipur, but also Mikael Andersson’s blog. The blog takes you behind the scenes from the point of view of the ITTF Education and Training Department.

“Blogging Director” Mikael Andersson is one of four ITTF Executive Directors. The Swede was Denmark’s first full-time National Coach in the late 80s and has been the driving force behind the ITTF Global Junior Programme. Starting back in 2002/2003 with very few events it counts almost 30 tournaments in the 2009 calendar (the continental events not included yet).

Reading his blog is probably the best preparation for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, the inaugural Youth Olympics organised by the International Olympic Committee.

Top Seeds Secure Singles Crowns



Vladimir Samsonov of Belarus and Japan’s Ai Fukuhara, the top seeds, won the respective Men’s and Women’s Singles titles at the Morocco Open Hassan II in Rabat on Friday 10th July 2009 recording respective final wins over Spain’s Carlos Machado and Korea’s Seok Ha Jung.
