"This Men's Singles finals really has high quality and level. It represents the highest level of battle in today's men's table tennis." Yang Ying said. 

"As a penhold player, Xu Xin has a lot to consider from the match including his service and receives. Xu Xin's speed has increased recently and stayed closer to the table this time." Yang Ying explained, pointing out Xu Xin's features in the battle. 

Meanwhile, the former table tennis player also did not forget to recognise the challenger Yan An: "Yan An's forehand is lethal but still needs to be strengthened. His receives are of a disadvantage." 

Now that Ma Lin and Wang Hao are slowly fading away and with their performances in recent competitions, Xu Xin and even Yan An have successfully established a stable position within the Chinese Team. 

"The era of the new Three Musketeers of the Chinese Team has arrived. Xu Xin undoubtedly had placed his foot firmly in the third person position next to Zhang Jike and Ma Long. Meanwhile, Yan An could be the dark horse as he can successfully challenge these three big names. Actually, in domestic competitions, Yan An has a better record than Xu Xin. He just needs more experience." Yang Ying concluded.
