Xu Yingbin playing style

Xu Yingbin is a fast and powerful player. His forehand attack is rather powerful. He stays close to the table. It’s fun to watch Xu Yingbin play table tennis since his forehand and backhand are both powerful and aggressive. It would be preferable if he worked on his soft touches near the net.

Here is an example of his game:

Xu Yingbin childhood

Xu Yingbin, born in 2001, began playing table tennis at the age of five because his grandfather is a fan. He joined the Heilongjiang provincial squad when he was ten years old. Despite his parents’ objections, Xu Yingbin pursued a professional career.

His persistence triumphed over his parents’ opposition. Xu Yingbin entered the national squad in March 2015 after winning the 2014 national cadet boys’ singles title (Northern Region), defeating Yang Shuo 4-3 after a 1-3 deficit and 6:9 down in the fifth game.

Currently, he is a member of Team B. In 2016, the Chinese team sent a very inexperienced squad to the World Junior Table Tennis Championships, consisting of Xu Yingbin, Xu Haidong, Yang Shuo, and Yu Heyi for the boys’ team.

Among the four athletes, Xu Yingbin was the first to join the national team, and the national team coaches had high expectations for him. However, his performance was unsatisfactory, as he was eliminated in the round of 16 of boys’ singles by Korean player Cho Seungmin, who overcame Jun Mizutani and advanced to the semifinals of the men’s singles at the 2017 Australia Open.
