Ma Long has truly faced the challenge in the 2014 World Team Championships convincingly. As his teammate Zhang Jike faltered along the way, he stepped up to save the Chinese Team against Germany in the finals. With this, he earned praises from the head coach Liu Guoliang. 

Sohu Sports. Every success deserves recognition and Ma Long is earning all of what he deserves. 

Seeing how Dimitrij Ovtcharov crushed the Grand Slam champion Zhang Jike in the finals of the World Team Championships, Liu Guoliang was somehow expected the worst. 

But when Ma Long put up his defences and offences against Ovtcharov, Liu Guoliang felt relieved.

Of course, the head coach gave his high regards on that matter. He pointed out that since the 2012 London Olympics, Ma Long has been undefeated in three team competition finals. "He is performing more and more matured." He said. 

"Ma Long has been placed into a test. With his perfect performance in the competition, Ma Long has won the trust and respect of everyone. He conquered his opponents and played well, allowing us to feel assured." Liu Guoliang added. 

Although a very strong player, Ma Long also has his share if issues. "In previous world competitions, Ma Long always seemed soft. This time, he definitely deserve honour." Liu Guoliang concluded.
