The upcoming season of the Chinese Super League will be filled with table tennis superstars not only from China but from all over the world. The German superstar Timo Boll will once again grace the competition with his presence and will be teaming once again with Ma Lin for Jiangsu. In the 2011 season, Ma Lin and Timo Boll were able to bring their Zhejiang Team into the championship title. Can they take Jiangsu to victory this time? 

 

QQ. The playing lineup of teams that will be participating in the upcoming season of the Chinese Super League was released late last week. Once again, the winning tandem and former Zhejiang teammates, Ma Lin and Timo Boll will be back in action in the arena. 

The upcoming Chinese Super League will be a star-filled competition with table tennis superstars from Germany, South Korea and Chinese Taipei who will be gracing the strongest table tennis league in the world with their presence in the arena. 

For the second time, the 2008 Olympic champion Ma Lin will team up with the German superstar Timo Boll. Last time, both Ma and Boll, in addition to the help of Hao Shuai, were able to take Zhejiang into the championship title after beating Xu Xin's Bazhou in the finals.

However, last season, the club was not able to participate forcing Ma Lin to transfer to Jiangsu with Chen Qi. For this year, Jiangsu will have an even stronger lineup with Timo Boll. Jiangsu was not able to seize all their advantages as they failed to enter into the play-offs. 

The question now, with Ma Lin, Chen Qi and Timo Boll, can they upset the reigning champion Ningbo and other strong teams like Shandong, Shanghai and Tianjin? 

Aside from Timo Boll, another German star will also be on duty in the competition. Dimitrij Ovtcharov will play under the new team of Guangdong. He will be playing with Chinese rookies like Song Hongyuan. 

Meanwhile, foreign stars like Joo Sae Hyuk and Chuang Chih Yuan will also be present in the competition. Joo Sae Hyuk remains to be with the defending champions Ningbo while Chuang Chih Yuan replaces Jorgen Persson for Tianjin along with Hao Shuai.
