02 Ma Long vs Joo Sae-hyuk (Incheon Asian Games 2014)

For me, I really like the match between Ma Long and the legendary chopper, Joo Sae-hyuk. This is a 4K epic battle. When Ma Long met the peak performance of the Korean legend in Incheon, attacking beauty to the extreme defensive style.

In the 2014 Incheon 17th Asian Games table tennis men’s team final, the host South Korea team faced the Chinese team. In the first set of singles match, veteran chopper Joo Sae-hyuk fought against Ma Long.

The match is considered “a wonderful contest that has not been seen in the past 30 years”. Liu Guoliang also said, “The most peak performance of the defensive player in history”. The two fought fiercely in four rounds, and the Dragons only defeated the legend Joo Sae-hyuk by four points in total, which is evident in its brilliance and intensity. Joo Sae-hyuk’s ability to defend was impeccable, and his counterattack hit rate was astonishingly high.

However, the Dragons were even better, withstood Joo Sae-hyuk’s impact with super ability and tenacious will. In the end, the Chinese team won 3-0 and won the men’s team championship of the Incheon Asian Games.
