an all Chinese Semi-final in Women's singles , which's not a surprise ofc , at least we have much more competitive men's singles quarters with an European assured to be in the Semis

so far we have...

 

Chinese clean sweep in the women's singles (but we're also going to have a new world champion, at least)...

 

1 all Chinese and 1 all Japanese semifinals (which means that we're going to have a CHN vs JPN final) in the women's doubles...

 

1 all Chinese and 1 Europe (FRA or SWE) vs KOR semifinals in the men's singles...

 

1 all Chinese and 1 all European (POR vs a composite ESP&ROU pair) semifinals in the men's doubles...

 

and a CHN vs JPN final in the mixed doubles (with the bronze medals gone to another CHN and to a GER pairs)...

 

this means that CHN are still on course for a clean sweep of the world titles, that Europe will end up winning 4 medals overall (2 in Olympic disciplines from 2 different Nations, GER and FRA or SWE) and that Asia will win in the end 16 medals (1x KOR, 3x JPN and 12x CHN)...

and the first 2 Gold Medals went to...guess who? yessss, you're right! :CHN China is the correct answer...:p

 

:CHN Liu Shiwen is the new star of women's Table Tennis...after winning the Mixed Doubles tournament with her partner Xu Xin, she doubled up her Gold Medal collection by winning the most prestigious title, the (women's) Singles by beating her teammate Chen Meng in the final match (4-2 the score)...

 

meanwhile, :CHN Ma Long won the men's Doubles tournament (with his partner Wang Chuqin) by beating the "strange" :ESP:ROU Spanish/Romanian pair formed by Alvaro Robles and Ovidiu Ionescu (4-1 the score) in the final match and now he is also once again in the men's Singles Gold Medal match, waiting for the winner of the second semifinal (still running, 2 sets apiece while writing) between :KOR An Jae Hyun and :SWE Matthias Falck...

 

the women's Doubles Gold Medal match is still to be played (between CHN and JPN)...

Matthias Falck qualifies to the final :thumbup: i don't think he can be a real threat for Ma long to win 3rd consecutive title

Well,he was beating Chinese players in the past,so,even though Ma is different universe i wouldnt be surprised to see 6 or 7 sets. And Ma's victory,to be precise.
