He plays a very controlled style game by nature, would be interesting to see video of him going too aggressive.

Or we could give Goa Hao credit for great play.  I'll admit I didn't have high hopes for Hao mainly because he has no worthy practice partners.  If he was still fresh from China, then I would have called it an even match.  However, he showed great poise today and a lot of maturity in managing the match (and he had no coach, either).  If I knew how to reach his parents, I'd tell them they should be proud.

Let's see... Hao beats Jinxin, but Jinxin beat Crisan.  Crisan has beaten Timo Boll numerous times and Timo has beat (at one time or another) all of the top Chinese pros (Ma Long, Zhang Jike, etc.).  Therefore, Hao is the best player in the world.  LOL

Are you talking about the Open singles or about when you and I played?

Sorry about your lost, but it's not easy to play against a person in wheelchair, as you may not used to the restriction imposed, and end up giving an easy ball.

I had the opportunity to play Eric in the U.S. Open.  He is a very good player and a nice guy.

Thank you to Vince, Jerry, Jinlong, John Peng and all the others, who sacrifice the possibility to participate themselves in order to arrange an excellent tournament for us others to enjoy. All-in-all a great venue: excellent lighting; no drafts; good tables, nets and balls; sturdy floors providing good footing; good contrast; relatively little disturbing foot traffic, etc. Very good organization. The level of the players was very good, including at the very top. If you haven't yet, you should consider participating in next year's Seattle tournament !!
