Following his recent achievements, especially in the European circuit, Dimitrij Ovtcharov has certainly raised his level as a top European player in the world now. His world ranking will support such. In his interview, he has acknowledged his current status but he said that he never had planned to replace Timo Boll. 

PingPang World. Dimitrij Ovtcharov has raised his level in recent years. In fact he has already exceeded Timo Boll. What could be his thoughts about it? 

“The German Team having two strong players is definitely a good thing, especially that there is one or two players who can impact the Chinese players. This is a big advantage against other teams.” Dimitrij Ovtcharov answered. 

The German player has indeed increased his level as a table tennis player. As of now, he is ranked fourth in the world, right after the Chinese main players Ma Long, Fan Zhendong, and Xu Xin. Aside from that, Ovtcharov also won important matches in and out of Europe. 

“Around two and a half years, I became Europe’s best player. Last year, I was able to win all important competitions in Europe. In the recent six important games, I got five championship titles. As of this moment, I am the best player in Europe.” He said. 

So does this mean that he is acknowledging the fact that he has snatched the leading position from Timo Boll

“However, I never thought of getting Timo Boll’s position. I just want to work hard with him. The best way of training is to have a pairing. Having the strongest combat skills can give us the fastest progress.” Dimitrij Ovtcharov concluded.
