It is a shame Europe has fallen way behind China in TT.
Last big win for Europe was Schlager in the 2003 WTTC which was amazing in itself.
true. It saddens me because that sort of kills interest in Europe too. The best ball talents will pick other sports. I mean how are you supposed to compete with a country like China where it's like national sport and the best start 5-6 years old in giant schools and then practice 10 hours a day, every day.
Not many europeans are prepared for a sacrifice like that. But table tennis is a sport where you can't really out-power or out-run skill, like in tennis.
Here's some amazing doubles points. Look at those asian freaks
But Schlager spoted at 1:34
