His backhand ability is very strong, backhand serve, defense, and quick attack is strong. The defensive ability is also very good. It is the most promising new star in Europe after Waldner, Samsonov, and Timo Boll. Ocharov’s serve is dominated by a unique backhand serve. Under the premise that the backhand serve is the main tactical routine, depending on the opponent and the changes in the court situation, sometimes it will be replaced with a forehand serve.

On July 30, 2021, Dimitri Ocharov won the bronze medal in men’s singles table tennis at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.  On the evening of August 6, the men’s table tennis team finals of the Tokyo Olympics, the Chinese men’s team composed of Ma Long, Xu Xin, and Fan Zhendong, faced old rivals Ocharov’s German men’s team.
