After the breakups, the veteran Ma Lin surprised everyone yesterday with his wedding with Zhang Yaqing, born in Handan, Hebei in year 1982. 

The celebration was well attended by more than 200 people with some of the them coming from the table tennis circle. Xu Yinsheng, Li Furong, Chinese Team's head coach Liu Guoliang, Team Leader Huang Biao, Women's Team head coach Kong Linghui, and Mixed Doubles partner Wang Nan, among others were just few of them. 

While Wang Hao had the Grand Slam champion Zhang Jike as his groomsman, Ma Lin had Ma Long and Xu Xin suited up for the role. 

The wedding was held in Four Season's Hotel in Beijing. Unlike Wang Hao's wedding, which was broken out to the media several weeks before the actual wedding, Ma Lin was able to keep it a secret. 

In an interview, Ma Lin admitted that he would want to be a father soon but such must happen at the right time. 

Congratulations to the newlyweds, Ma Lin and Zhang Yaqing!
