Geelong highlights: star names tested, titles decided

Ma Long progressed and so did Ding Ning, the reigning Olympic champions; on Saturday 13th July at the Seamaster 2010 ITTF World Tour Platinum Australian Open in Geelong, hopes of adding to their seemingly endless list gold medal successes remained alive.

However, on a day when the first titles were decided both endured testing times; it was not plain sailing; there was a defeat for Ma Long, a close call for Ding Ning.



Women’s Singles: Semi-Finals

…………Sun Yingsha, required qualify, beat Japan’s Kasumi Ishikawa, the no.6 seed (11-3, 11-7, 12-10, 12-10).

…………Notably, Sun Yingsha has now won all four meetings this year against Kasumi Ishikawa; previously she won in Doha, Sapporo and Busan.

…………Ding Ning, the no.3 seed, overcame Japan’s Mima Ito, the no.7 seed but was stretched the full seven games (11-3, 8-11, 11-4, 8-11, 9-11, 11-7, 11-8).

…………Success for Ding Ning means she now levels the score in the most recent encounters against Mima Ito; last November she lost in Stockholm before this year winning in Doha before experiencing defeat in Shenzhen.

Women’s Doubles: Final

…………China’s Chen Meng and Wang Manyu, the top seeds, beat Korea Republic’s Jeon Jihee and Yang Haeun, the no.2 seeds (11-6, 11-3, 8-11, 11-6).

…………The win meant Chen Meng and Wang Manyu repeated the success of the previous week in Busan and overall collected their third ITTF World Tour women’s doubles title as a partnership.

…………For Jeon Jihee and Yang Haeun, they have now appeared in 18 ITTF World Tour women’s doubles finals as a pair; they have finished runners up 11 times.

Mixed Doubles: Final

…………Hong Kong’s Wong Chun Ting and Do Hoi Kem, the no.2 seeds, beat Japan’s Jun Mizutani and Mima Ito (5-11, 13-11, 11-8, 11-9).

…………A consecutive success for Wong Chun Ting and Doo Hoi Kem; the previous week they had won in Busan. Overall it was their third such final appearance as a pair; earlier this year in China they had finished in runners up spot.

…………Somewhat differently, for Jun Mizutani and Mima Ito their first appearance as a pairing in an ITTF Word Tour mixed doubles final.
