  • Congratulations Fan Zhendong!!! 🔥🔥🔥

    • @Steven Seagal go see a doctor

    • @Rajat Desai Do you know liziqi. The most subscribers youtuber she from China. So don't worry about me.

    • @Rajat Desai people just believe waht they believe. I just telling you the true.

    • @Garry airsoft be careful..... You might be arrested for using youtube

    • @Rajat Desai I am from China. I know more than you know. The government is better than before.

  • What a deserving champion - Fan Zhendong showed maturity and a well-thought play in this match against a very promising young talent. Couldn't be happier for Fan who cements his name as one of greatest in this game with this title. Congratulations Fan Zhendong!

  • I'm so happy for Xiao Pang! He has been preparing for this moment for a long time and he's well deserved the win. His style has evolved from pure power and fierce attacks to precise controls and more versatile (in order to beat Ma Long😄) now there are so many players playing like Fan a few years ago but now he has come to a new level! Big congrats and enjoy the winning and be safe!

    • I thought only Chinese know the xiaopang is FZD

    • Respect truly warm words!

  • Just wonderful this match. Congratulation to Fan Zhendong and Truls Moregard.

    • @Odo Isn't he the Vice - champion?

    • @Zenco Suzuki not a runner-up, it's silver.

    • @snail power He has already achieved great things. Being a 19 y.o. runner-up is an amazing stuff, without doubt. Truls is more interesting to me to watch. His tennis is so refreshing. He shows something special that is his distinguishing feature.

    • Truls really a special dude. His game is something you don't see every day. Hope he'll achieve great things in the future.

    • @Steven Seagal I do have a negative view in most of the events you mentioned but please, this is TT. Say something relevant!

  • Super performance by Fan Zhendong. He really deserved the world champion title!🤩

    • @Kayapo Lori Fan Zhendong just defeated Ma Long in the trial warm-up match before the World Championship!

    • Fan wouldnt be the champion if ma long were authorized to play. Being the champion means beating the best. The best is ma long and He didnt beat him so he is the champion because he won the final but he isnt the real champion.

  • What a deserved title for Fan Zhendong. Beautiful, exemplary performance this whole tournament. Respect from Korea.

    • The only pity is that they ban Malong to ensure FZD can win the gold instead of let him beat Malong himself

  • The reason why Fan Zhendong is so popular in China is because not only he is strong, but also because he stays humble anywhere anytime

    • All players from China in the top 10 are humble

    • @Aria4everSUSHI Nah, he was just joking. His relationship with Ma Long is very good.

    • @Aria4everSUSHI Did Fan really say that? Or you are referring to some other players.

    • with the exception when he talks about malong at hotel rooms. “He is old and should retire. He should realize that he is old “. Hahahaha

    • A true champ!

  • Fantastic victory for FZD!!! Moregard had some moments but nothing like the nearly continuous string of miraculous shots by FZD!

    • @FHD SnSLifestyle 2K That was the pairing for the Finals! Perhaps the real pairing should have been otherwise (e.g. LJK) but ... FZD is an amazing player and he again demonstrated his amazing talents in that match!

    • Not really miraculous shots. How can you compare world number one with 77?

    • I would love to see a amazing shots cut from Wtt ~~~

  • Truls Moregard will be a lot better in 4-5 more years. He won Silver at cadet level for two consecutive years, Silver at the 2017 and 2019 World Junior Championship, and Gold at the 2019 European Junior Championship. One day, Truls might be in top 10 of the world.

    • I still remember getting pummeled by xiang peng on juniors in 2019.hes improved a lot. Hope he doesnt fall off though like falck

    • Still china for no 1

  • WR1 vs WR77. I'm so happy for FZ's win - he really deserved it. What a great talent is TM - amazing touch, smartness and fighting spirit. Congratulations to both of them!

  • What a fantastic tournament for the swedish team, just an outstanding performance in Houston.

  • Fan, I commend you for being patient for the last 6 years being second to Ma Long to finally win the World Championships. Now go out and get the gold medal in Paris 2024 and you’ll be a Grand Slam Champion! Or get 2023 Worlds and 2028 LA Olympic gold alongside 2024 and you’ll be a Double Grand Slam Champion like Ma Long! The 2020s belong to you just like the 2010s belonged to Ma Long.

    • @Ben TheKeeshond Are you sure that the absence of Malong is because of CN coaches? What if after winning the Olympics, he just feels tired and wants a break? You talk about experts, but in TT world, Chinese coaches are the best experts, and if they say that Malong should rest, no one has a bigger reputation to say otherwise. And as long as the Chinese keep winning big tournaments, they are still right And trust me, if Ma long represents another country, you will never see him winning again.

    • @Globetrotter Bengaluru Agree! But they shouldn't take away this opportunity from Fan Zhendong to win the championship against Ma Long. Also, this is very cruel to Ma Long because he is in no way slowing down. Most experts believe Ma at this point in time, is the best in the world. Since China doesn't want Ma Long, China should allow him to represent another country. Of course, just an impossible suggestion.

    • @Ben TheKeeshond I wanted to see a MA Long vs Fan too. But there are more chances that Ma would win. So probably the coaches gave Fan the opportunity to win the title.

    • Without ma long being there he will never be true champion as he hasn't beaten the best. Not his fault Chinese bearocracy. I think even he would have prefered ma to be there and be true champion

    • @Travelator You have said exactly what I feel. Thank you!.

  • Fan Zhendong, we all knew this day for you will come. And it came!!! You really deserve it. Love and congratulations, champion!!!! Hoooray!!!

  • Congratulations Fan Zhendong! He has been waiting for this moment for so long and surely deserves this champion. Literally NO.1 in the world now. No one can double that!

    • "Literally" number 1 as opposed to just plain old boring number 1?

  • congratulations to Fan Zhondong!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A real king of table tennis in current era.

  • “Don’t turn your back on Fan Zhengdong...” True talk. There was only ever going to be one outcome. Well done Truls. And congratulations to FZD! You deserve to be champion.

  • Well-deserved title for Fan Zhendong. Dominating performance! Truls Moregard indeed looks promising, but final was still a very one-sided. He also was a bit fortunate that this year's draw brought all the strongest Chinese players in one pool. Normally, it should have been a Chinese final, but this WTTC had dozens of flaws overall. One of the worst-organized tournaments in recent history.

  • Damn! Those spins during rally from Fan Zhendong put so much pressure on Truls that Truls could not play aggresive. He couldn't block pure topspin aggresively. And FZD! Bro you are damn quick! Super recovery after each phenomenal shots.

  • congratulations FDZ to the gold medal and congratulations Truls, to play an even game vs world no1 is a great achievement for anyone let alone a 19 year old. Great things to come for Truls im sure.

  • Great effort for Truls Moregard!!! I commend him for his fighting spirit for getting this far and even playing with Fan zhen dong. You'll go far!

    • This guy have bad sports spirits, throwing his racket whenever he is mad

    • @Dave Beluga Moregard plays a 90s style with focus on serving, return ball and trickery. Chinese fans really dig this style. We hope he come to train in China asap before he develops bad habits and tendencies in euro league. I do agree that he is very lucky to be in this final. But the potentials he has shown is undeniable.

    • @Dave Beluga dude he’s 19, he’s not even close to his peak yet. He won silver while rated 77th in the world, that’s insane

    • I think he'll really struggle after people played him a few times and his "creative" shots don't work anymore

  • 恭喜樊振東,這場比賽,步伐輕盈,剛柔並濟,看起來很優雅。

  • Congrats to Fan for winning and he is best right now! It will be very exiting In two years when Truls has some more experience under his belt. He seems to learn during the games and he feels very creative in his playingstyle. Its so exiting to watch him play! Greate performance to get to the final when you are ranked at 77 in the World!!

  • Top top effort from Truls!! He is a future world top 5 regular. Got the lot for a young lad. Tries whatever,like Waldner. FZD just untouchable. Great advert for our amazing sport!!!

    • @大蒙Demo we have to wait and see there are too many good players now

    • Truls has bright future

    • Leo wrong mate see for promising taiwainese Lin Y mattias falk etc... the path of truls will be harder and harder because he is a target now

    • To be world top 5 regular, you need amazing consistency, He just won few and all of a sudden he is future top 5 regular!!!

  • Fan Zhendong is probably one of the most "ideal" shakehand players in table tennis history

    • @JYK Can't agree more

    • @Ben TheKeeshond Ma Long is King of table tennis. He is the most ideal table tennis player in history, but i don't think he plays "an ideal shakehand game." His biggest strength is his serves, tactics and forehand attacks. He plays his own style of table tennis and he is the best at it I think Zhang Jike, Fan Zhendong are more of a textbook players of shakehanders than Ma Long. Ma long is more of a, "god of table tennis" than an "ideal shakehand player"

    • The irony.

    • One of the most ideal is the right phrase. I have been a huge fan of Fan Zhendong since he appeared in international competitions. I am so happy for Fan winning this world championship. But a twist to what you said, Ma Long is the ideal shakehand player.

  • FZD deserved this. Truls is great, excellent on the table today but he did have some troubles with receiving the serve today. With that I have a feeling that he could have made a set or two and then who knows. Looking forward to see what he does in the future

  • Congratulations to FZD. Fans have been waiting for this moment for Years. We can exhale finally. Huge credit to Truls. A world ranked #77 19 year old, few people, if any, would’ve thought you could reach the MS final. If you work a bit more on your mental game, sky is the limit.

    • @Shoa S you are hilarious

    • @loukas371 Thanks. I just checked, you are right

    • @Viktor Berglin Thank you very much. It's clear now, I saw the December 2020, not 2021. The misinformation disoriented me and lead me to a flawed trajectory :)

    • @Viktor Berglin Thanks for the information. It clears up some of my bothering as unfairness triggers me. I am still dismayed that Ma Long and Xu Xin didn't partake. I am assuming there was a competition just prior to the WC that changed the rankings? Hope all of you have a good day

    • @Shoa S December 2020, not 2021. It is almost a year old. If Ma Long and Xu Xin would have partaken, seed 1-3 would have been Chinese players who would then have been more evenly distributed across the bracket. Have a nice day.

  • Definitely great performance from FZD, the monster. Truls, the young star, is also playing extremely well, but he was trying to survive from the games while FZD is dominating the match. It's great to see both of them playing in the finals!

  • 🤩 WOW… Fan played a phenomenal match! ❤️🏆

    • Truls moregard isnt in the top 10, beating him means nothing.

  • Congratulations to Truls Moregard ! He played so well in this tournament, for his young age and experiment ! A future great player : such an amzing tournament of him and his team !

  • Congrats to Fan Zhendong, and amazing performance from Truls as well.

  • Memorable match. Typical of FZD. Never turn your back on him, yes the commentator said. A true genius.

  • Truls will be a name for the future! Fan Zhendong was on another level this match, amazing player!

  • Congratulations to Fan Zhendong much deserved . He's hard work has paid off over the years but we gotta also give up to truls who's ranked 77th in the world ,the kid is still a teen but managed to reach the finals that deserves recognition and respect also. He may have lost 4 to 0 in the finals but getting silver is a big achievement too.

  • Fan almost won in 2017 final against Malong in what is arguably the best final match in recent era. He was only 20. You know it's just a matter of time he'll be world champion.

  • Wow, Truls really gave it his best shot, and FZD well, took it and gave it back with interest. Clinical as the commentator said. Truls though, what a future, keep fighting.

  • 恭喜東東取得冠軍🏆,最中意睇佢打波

  • 实力差距太大,没给FZD多少压力,但作为回应对方强力搏杀式攻球,樊振东打了几个迅雷不及掩耳的回头球,完美展现王者的霸气!

    • 現今欧洲波被中國克住,而有威脅中國的,是日本,日本打法可快速打向對方兩边,另對方失位。

  • 3:15 & 4:38 TM's *reaction* says it all! 🏓🔛🔥

  • Truls had some sick shots, but I bet, everytime FZD turned around and he saw the huge lettters CHINA on the back of the shirt, it sent chills down his angular racket.

  • Congratulations! The World’s Table Tennis top seed. 🌟👌

  • Congrats to Fan Zhendong!!!🥇🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

  • Brilliant performance by Truls Moregard who at 19 years old, has got time on his side.

  • Congratulation to Fan. Incredible effort by Truls. Gold in the doubles by Mattias and Kristian. Sweden ~11k licenced players.Kina ~15million…

  • Congratulations Fan Zhendong!!! He deserves this world championship!!!

  • More to come for trul. I’m so happy for fzd. Yeahh he showed a true champ attitude!! Congrats my idol!!

  • Fantastic tournament by Truls. Fan too strong and by far the best player besides Ma Long.

  • Well done Fan! But Truls certainly isn't going to die wondering, he gave that everything! You have to feel in a couple of years when he matures a bit, he really is going to be some player!!

  • Congratulations! Fan Zhendong, the World Ranking No.1! This St. Bride Cup hit you and kissed you, it had been waiting for you for years! Now you are coming and take it finnaly! You are the best Table Tennis players in world. You well deserve it, you are always so calm and humble as always every time and anywhere. You inspire me so much. You are the star shining and guiding us in our lives! Love you so so so much! Keep fight and going! We will stand for you as always!

  • This title was long overdue for Fan Zhendong. Congrats to him and great effort by Truls! Wish Fan Zhendong could have won it by defeating Ma Long.

    • @olissime01 I am Chinese. Humility is part of chinese culture like confucianism, taoism, Buddhism, filial piety, respect elders, etc. Zhong guo just means middle kingdom. And if you look on a map, there's no other country that's surrounded or shared a border with as many countries as china. So middle country is literally correct name. Nothing to do with showing off. Chinese call usa the beautiful country. Along with better names for other countries.. Isn't that humility in context? Yes, it is. But of course you will also find loud angry assholes too in china, and a lot of them. Because there is a lot of chinese. 1.4 billion+. Even if you live in china, how many Chinese you know? How many cities you lived in? Overwhelming majority of Chinese are humble and hard working, like farmers and stuff in rural areas. Don't just judge Chinese from some loud mouth assholes in urban well off areas with post modern culture, not traditional Chinese culture (ie the predominant culture out if 1.4 billion)

    • @ex0duzz chinese humility ? Hmmm, have you ever lived in China ? Obviously not. The chinese name for China "Zhong Guo" speaks by itself about the lack of humility...

    • Those "arrogant coaches" are former players and champions themselves, who also went through the same system and also dominated, just like China does now. They have the right to be arrogant, they are dominating for a reason. They put country and cooperation ahead of individual brilliance. There is competition but there is also cooperation. Ma long also don't want to be too greedy and allow the younger generation to rise up. That is how it's always been, and is part of Chinese humility culture, and it will be Ma longs turn to be coach after!

    • @Ben TheKeeshond absolutely !

    • @Yuguang Wu yep, but never in major event...

  • Congratulation Fan Zhengdong. You are very strong and talent.

  • In terms of skills, strength and speed, FZD is the absolute best in the history of table tennis.

  • Nice job Xiao Pang!!! Great win!!! I am really happy for him!

  • Thanks for your hard work and Patience Fan! Finally you did it!! let's get gold medal in Paris

  • What a fantastic tournament for the swedish team, just an outstanding performance in Houston.

  • Finally, Fan is standing on top of the Table Tennis world. This World Singles Championship was flirting with Fan Zhendong for the past 6 years. I am so glad for Fan that he finally win this elusive trophy. This Swedish teen Truls Moregard played very well. It is not like that he was blown away. The score was tight in every game. Truls needs to figure out how to do better in the last few points of a set.

    • Well, those few points are actually the hardest part for Western players to overcome Chinese. Look at the Olympic or many tournaments before, many games they lost by only a few points, we see that we know that but eventually they can do nothing because the Chinese will figure Truls out even before Truls get better.

  • Yayyy expecting it and loving it!!! Congrats FZD!!! 💯🔥✨

  • Congratulations FZD. You deserve to win💪

  • games and he feels very creative in his playingstyle. Its so exiting to watch him play! Greate performance to get to the final when you are ranked at 77 in the World!!

  • Congratulations Fan :) i’m so happy when you get Gold Medal because i saw you long time ago when you just 17 18 yrs. I see your talent and i sure you will be the next Dragon No1 in the World Table Tennis :) Bravo!!!!!

  • 樊振東攻防能力很均衡,尤其是他被對手強力進攻時,他能迅速移位至對方攻擊點後,並在第一時間,快速回擊來球。因此,樊振東的對手,經常在尚未回復動作時,球已來到自己的球台,因此只能驚訝的望著回球,再看看對面的樊振東,露出一臉不可思議模樣,太可愛了。

    • @ligang T 是的,閣下觀察很仔細,樊振東進步,應歸功於他的主管教練王皓的指導。

    • 这个欧洲小孩反手以快速弹击为主,转换正手强攻得分。 可是小胖的反手,那是被马龙锤练出来的,弹击怎么可能获得优势,拧拉,快撕都不好使! 樊振东反手快带一板,为什么让对手显得突然,是因为他的反手快带都是身体变形带出来的,不是正常动作,你仔细看,反手看死对手大角的动作,全是非正常的。 樊振东就是把这种非正常的动作练到了炉火纯青。 上一次胜马龙,看回去的哪个反手快带,如出一辙。

    • His name is Truls not opponent ^^

  • Congrats Fan zhendong. Not only did you add a major title to your name and move closer to your Grand Slam dream. But you also shut the mouths of thousands of Ma Long die hard fans who said China is going to lose the gold medal with this "shitty" line up. Good job 👏 👏 👏

    • @Sandalwood01 Obviously people wanted Ma Long to play, but I hardly believe someone who followed table tennis somewhere close thought there is a chance for China not to get gold in singles. About Ma Long only talent, he is not the only talent on the team ofc, but he is the top level player. Except Zhang Jike in the past, I don't see someone getting close to Ma Long level.

    • @olissime01 if China get can still sweep 4 gold medals out of the 5 medals with this weak line up, then the rest of the world are probably all newbies who has no prior knowledge to table tennis at all. Even so called china Chinese threat Harimoto could not get a single set off Wang Chuqin who participated in his first ever mix doubles final. Gets your facts right and educate yourself more my friend.

    • @olissime01 Don't forget the Chinese Women's team: they're strong as iron!

    • @olissime01 Ya.... "Very weak". So weak that not a single foreigner, including China's threat Japan can get a single set of Wang Chuqin. So weak, that world ranking no.4 Hugo could not win against Liang Jingkun while leading 0-3. Your statement shows how little you know about these players and table tennis in general.

    • As a matter of fact, with the exception of FZD, the chinese line up was a pretty weak one...

  • Moregard is good, but World No.1 Fan ZD still rules. Congrats!

  • Congrats to all medal winners,proud of Timos achievement.

  • Despite is FZD fan, I still salute to great performance by Truls in this final. He tried everythings the best he could including switching bat to another hand and run as fast as he could to fight back, definitely he will have a bright future for future tournaments! Looking forwards for future battles between both again!

    • @Tor Exx the thing some people talk is that FZD eliminated 3 top Chinese teammates in a row to get to the finals. And while the run from this kid was interesting, luck also played a mayor factor, he didn't even play a good condition Timo boll.. he also shows a bad attitude towards the sport and the rivals, you can see it in his facial expressions & body language. I get the hype and it's a common thing on the table tennis community to hope anyone beat the Chinese for some reason. It's true that FZD won without major effort tbh even if the highlights & the score make it seem a little closer. And it's an example for the other top players, hard work and focus shouldn't be shaken by random plays & actions.

    • @Bob Sacamano He is also ranked 77th in the world. The fact of the matter is, Sweden won the mens double, and they got silver in single, that’s is pretty fucking amazing considering the size of the country.. So instead of mocking a 19 year old, in his first finals ever, against the world best, maybe give him some credit?

    • Give me a break. Truls got trashed.... easily

  • Even if it was not the most intense final, Truls run was amazing. Of course he broke my heart with beating Timo Boll (I am german) but he deserved it. Some people didnt like his behaviour but to be fair, showing such mental strength trough the 2nd round to the final is more than respectable. He was 2 matchpoints down against Franziska and 0 3 against Lim Jonghoon. So congrats on that. And this tournament showed, that only Ma Long was the guy to stop Fan Zhendong. No one was really challenging Fan Zhendong in this tournament. I think most of us expected him to win and he did in a very dominant way.

    • @Longkins don't think so mate it is going harder for him now

    • @George eAgLe they used world ranking and well defined rules to make the draw.

    • @steven huang they used world ranking and well defined rules to make the draw.

    • @FootballFever I understand why WTT put nearly all Chinese players in one group. This is to ensure that non Chinese players have any chance of progressing to the semifinals. I do get your point that if Chinese players were put into different groups, the outcome would be completely different. We might end up with all Chinese players in semifinals

    • @Q Pham That draw was quite skewed, with the only Chinese player on the opposite bracket a lesser known and lower rank member of the squad. Fan had to run through three colleagues, who arguably were all title contenders, to reach the Finals. I hope the lob-sided draw wasn't intentional; it'd have been terribly short-sighted and counter-intuitive.

  • No mercy 4-0 😮. Unbeaten even 1 set. Congrat Fan AmaZhen Dong😀😍

  • I knew it would be 4-0 for Fan but Truls play style so entertaining to watch !

  • إنه الأفضل ...يستحق ذلك بلا منازع حتى المباراة النهائية كانت سهلة عليه ! عجيب هالولد يلعب ...

  • Really awesome. In this match, FZD looked very calm, perhaps very tired already.

  • This Truls guy has some personality. Fun to watch. He is being himself.

  • Congratulations! Honored champion!!!

  • Sometimes i forget that Fan still is 24, besides hes nearly in every final the last 6 years, its insane. After olympia and wttc silver finally he got his gold (:. Only the dragon van defeat him

  • It seems that Fan Zhengdong took some time to adapt to Moregard’s newly designed paddle which produces powerful drives and smashes. Once he managed to read them in the last 2 sets..Moregard was no match to him

  • 정말 멋진경기였고 우승한 판젠동 축하드립니다.

  • I am just glad to see Sweden men's table tennis team is back. They played so well in this tournament in Houston.

  • Congratulations to Fan!!! However Truls is more interesting to me to watch. His tennis is so refreshing. He shows something special that is his distinguishing feature. Fan's game, on the other hand, is a great force and an almost impassable wall. Bright future ahead young Swede. Being a 19- years- old runner-up is an amazing thing. Welcome to the Polish league again. Now everyone will want to win against the runner-up:)

  • Truls' style of play just doesn't work against FZD. FZD is a beast!!! Still an awesome run for Truls!

    • @Erich Mauerböck I'd say 5 to 8 years. But I still doubt it. But I'd love to be wrong, honestly.

    • let's talk again in 2 years...

  • Fan deserves it. Congratulations

  • FZD's mechanism is so insane

  • 恭喜小胖,冠军终于得到了,你是我心中永远的第一

  • games and he feels very creative in his playingstyle. Its so exiting to watch him play! Greate performance to get to the final when you are ranked at 77 in the World!!

  • Truls got to the finals...wow. This is clear evidence of hard work! Where were Harrimotto n the other top players?. It's been awhile I visited this channel.

  • Congrats Xiao Pang for winning the St Bride Vase trophy 🏆👍

  • Very easy match for Fan, it was like a training.

  • I would have preferred a final between Fan and Timo, too bad he was carrying injury. On the other hand, very happy to see the emergence of Moregard. He plays with a 90s style with a big focus on the serving, returns and trickery mind games, which fits his nick name waldner junior. I totally enjoyed watching his matches, except the throwing racket and lashing out part. Honestly speaking, as of now, Moregard is not enough to challenge any Chinese player of his age yet. For instance, Wang Chuqin (2 years older) beat him 4:0 in their last match. To realize the potential , Moregard should go train in China and play the Chinese super league as soon as possible. China will happily welcome him as the apprentice of Waldner and Pearson, our old friends.

    • @Bob Sacamano my friend, in case you didn’t get my name SUN, I am Chinese and a long time dedicated ping pong fan. China welcomes ANY player to train with us and almost all the top players already have, including Timo, Ito, Ishikawa, Diaz and even Waldner. For the super league, most teams have foreign players, be it for box office reason or the friendship factor. Of course they don’t get a starting position immediately, but as the season goes on they all get their fair share of play time, and thus gaining the experience not available anywhere else. I do agree Moregard is not at the level yet and was quite lucky to be in this final. My point is that he should come to China as soon as possible in order to realize his full potential. Would be sad to see him developing bad habits and tendencies from the euro league. Also, never underestimate our respect for Waldner. He is a long time arch enemy and a true friend. If he makes the request for Moregard we will gladly do him a favor. I believe nobody wants to see a new Waldner more than Swedish and Chinese.

    • Please. Give me a break. Troll can't even qualify for chinese super league. How much longer are you Europeans gonna milk the waldner cow?

  • If only Wang Chuqin ended up in the bottom part of the draw, he'd be in the final. After all he was the only one who took 2 set from Fan

  • FAN. Ferfect ! 🏓👍🏻🎉🏆

  • Europe need more talent young players like Truls…

  • Two Great Champions ⭐⭐ Thank you!!!

  • Well deserved, this was clear domination by Fan Zhendong, maybe the new goat? But Ma long and Jan ove Waldner, the two goats of China and Sweden will never be forgotten!

  • Congrats Fan Zhendong! But Ma Long still here in the back ready like a dragon

  • Ok. This isn't something I think I've seen in a long while, maybe never. At the time of this writing, November 30 2021, 12:12AM, this video has zero dislikes and 1900+ likes. There's a first for everything, including Fan Zhendong winning the singles World Championship. A work of art.

    • My ID-tv doesn't have a dislike count anymore, I hate it :(

  • Rather than raving on FZD's so called and pretty much expected (in the absence of the GOAT) performance, let'us focus on incredible path of a true legend of this sport, Timo Boll, semi-finalist at 40 years old...

    • Or the incredible path of Truls Moregard winning multiple 4-3 matches to make it to the final.

    • I agree. it would be much more entertaining if boll in the final. this final is as ugly as it can get from technical competence.

  • Trust fan to power his way through. Strong and focused display from Fan

  • pretty excited to see the world table tennis finals in Texas. Maybe more Americans will start playing now an in ten years it will be a more popular game here.

  • I've been binge watching Adam Bobrow youtube channel and now this is my first time watching a real table tennis championship! 😊

  • Well deserved, congratulation Fan

  • FZD is a wall. He's just too strong to beat.

    • @Benny Pan correct!👍

    • @Globetrotter Bengaluru ML plays like Ma Lin in shakehand. He can vary his shot in precise placement. He beat FZD smart, not by strength.

    • He's still human. MA has beaten him many times.

  • Finally he won the WTTC gold, my congratulations.

  • Great ankles, love the camera view!
