Liu Guoliang “We need to focus on Tomokazu”

Tomokazu Harimoto became table tennis youngest World Tour Grand Finals singles champion by winning Lin Gaoyuan in the final. He is no doubt a great potential to rival with the top Chinese players. Yes, he is still 15 years old!

Why Tomokazu improved so fast?

Tomokazu is phenomenal in table tennis. His training, his equipment, his “cho-lei”, all fit well with the new trend in table tennis. With the new ball, the backhand quick attack, and counter to gain the speed advantage has changed the game.

Liu Guoliang is correct

Liu Guoliang has returned to help China Team for the Tokyo 2020. He is correct about the performance of Harimoto. He said, that after the Tokyo 2020, China doesn’t have any real “young generation” that can compete with Tomokazu.

The “golden age” (Zhang Jike, Ma Long, Xu Xin) has passed away. The only hope is Fan Zhendong.

He is a very powerful Japanese table tennis teenager. Before defeating the world’s number one Fan Zhendong, he defeated Chinese table tennis players Zhang Jike and Ma Long respectively. This made China table tennis coaches are very surprised.

The main threat of China Team

Tomokazu is now considered the main threat to China Team. Liu Guoliang has said, “we need to focus on Harimoto Tomokazu”.
