Chinese paddlers lift both Team World Cup trophies

China defeated South Korea 3-1 in the final of the men’s event at the 2019 Team World Cup in Tokyo yesterday while the women defended their title by easing past host Japan 3-0.

This year’s World Cup was a test event for the Tokyo Olympic Games, and also adopted the same best-of-five competition system of the Olympics in which the first match is a doubles, followed by four singles matches.

World No. 1 Fan Zhendong won two points for the all-time leading Chinese in the final beating Jang Woo-jin 11-8, 11-8, 11-9 in the second rubber and Lee Sangsu 11-8, 11-4, 11-8 in the fourth. Xu Xin and Liang Jingkun lost the opening doubles match 11-8, 11-4, 10-12, 7-11, 10-12 to Lee Sang-su and Jeoung Young-sik. Liang, however, made up with a victory in the third rubber, winning 11-9, 8-11, 10-12, 15-13, 11-8 over Jeoung. In the women’s final, a Chinese team comprising Chen Meng, Liu Shiwen and Sun Yingsha recorded a 3-0 win against Japan’s Miu Hirano, Kasumi Ishikawa and Mima Ito.
