Incredible, in this gold medal Men's team tie, Chen Long suffered a shock defeat to Li Yu, 1:2.
Now Fujian is 0-2 down, and Tian Houwei is struggling against Chen Jin who has just taken G1,21-19, for Jiangsu. THW looks fitter in build than before. But CJ is playing well.

THW's superior fitness saves him to level up, forcing the rubber. THW got to improve his net play, CJ's drop shots are pretty good.

Tomorrow begins the individual championships for MS, WS, MD, WD and XD (which wasn't included in the team event).
Though the CHN Masters has been postponed to start on the 12th, I wonder those players - eight in each category because the 3rd to 8th placing playoffs will also have to be settled - who would have been playing intensely for the previous eleven days (for some of them at least) until the 10th and the 11th, how will they cope at the CHN Masters, both physically and mentally ?

I saw Wang Lin's name for the individual WS title starting tomorrow but not Wang Xin's, a surprise for me. Has WL recovered completely but not WX ? But I thought it should be the other way round as WX has rested for about a year, much longer than WL who suffered her 3rd ACL injury a few months short of a year ago (in Nov'12 iirc)?
Nevertheless, hope to see WX play at the CHN Masters which otherwise she may have to pull out if she feels physically stretched and/or mentally strained immediately after the CNG finals or 3rd to 8th playoffs held on the 10th Nov. No wonder WL didn't register for the CHN Masters, apparently to concentrate on the CNG, just as WX is presumably doing for the CM.

Hope to be able to view her other matches, esp the one where she beat Jiang YJ.

In the MS event R16, Tian Houwei was knocked out by Gao Huan, and Chen Jin retired without playing a single shot against Liu Kai, same for Qiao Bin who retired from his match with Huang Yuxiang.
Chen Jin was probably stressed out by his previous team match loss to Tian Houwei, that gripping struggle seemed to have taken a toll on both of them. As CNG is his swan song, Chen Jin is now officially retired for good to concentrate on his coaching career as un understudy for the CHN WS.
That means Tian HW and Qiao Bin can get ready for the CHN Masters next week.
