The Chinese Men Team was in battle yesterday against the South Korean Team for the semifinal round. In the round, the Chinese men maintained an impressive performance with a 3-0 win despite small challenges from their opponent. Eventually, they will advance into the finals against Germany.
The world's number one Ma Long was all fired up in the first match against Oh Sang Eun giving the Chinese Team a powerful start. In the second match against Ryu Seung Min, Wang Hao lost the first set but was still able to post success. This is the same with the world champion Zhang Jike who had slow movements in the match against Kim Min Seok.
"Its still the old problem, slow start. I was not able to adapt with the rotation of my opponent." Zhang Jike said after the match. In addition, Wang Hao also explained his side on his performance against Ryu Seung Min. "What happened was normal. We have already played for a number of times already. Both of us are already familiar with each other. I was able to have good control over the situation." Wang Hao said
Now that the Chinese Men Team has surpassed the penultimate hurdle victoriously, the China-German Finale will certainly be taking place for the 2012 World Team Championships.
With this, two members of the Chinese Team, Zhang Jike and Wang Hao, revealed their thoughts on the finals. "If I will be able to play, I should, as quick as possible, enter into the right condition. The finals can certainly be really fierce. As for the challenges, I have prepared for it." Zhang Jike said.
"The German Team is the host team and they are just in the right place. However, we believe on our overall strength as we will work together. I will fight cannot have any reservation. I just hope that the finals will give us a wonderful game." Wang Hao added.
