The table tennis WTT Macau Championship has ended. Wang Chuqin and Manyu Wang won the men’s singles and women’s singles respectively, while Malone and Chen Meng both won the runner-up. However, they got a lot of points, surpassing Zhang Benzhi and Wang Yidi respectively, and rose to the third place in the singles world.
Last week’s Xinxiang Championship, Wang Chuqin, Ma Long, Manyu Wang and Chen Meng all missed the final, and now four people are competing for the men’s singles and women’s singles titles. In the women’s singles final, Chen Meng won first and then lost, and finally 2-4 was reversed by Manyu Wang, and she missed the championship again. Then in the men’s singles final, Wang Chuqin, who was in a hot state, was unstoppable, and finally swept Malone 4-0 and won the championship easily. Liu Guoliang witnessed it on the spot.
According to the regulations of the Macau Championship, the winner can earn 1,000 points and 240,000 yuan, and the runner-up can also get 180,000 yuan and 700 points.
In this way, Manyu Wang and Wang Chuqin continued to consolidate their second position in the world singles, while Malone and Chen Meng got good news at the same time. Among them, Malone’s score rose from 3,890 to 4,500, surpassing Zhang Benzhihe to third place, and Guoping swept the top three in the men’s singles world. In addition, Chen Meng’s score rose from 5,155 to 5,765, surpassing Wang Yidi to the third place.
Wang Chuqin, Ma Long, Manyu Wang and Chen Meng earned a lot of points, as well as a bonus. Wang Chuqin and Manyu Wang both won the championship at the same time, with a prize of $25,000 and an extra bonus of $10,000, about RMB 240,000. In addition, Malone and Chen Meng also have a bonus of 180,000 yuan, and the four people add up to a total bonus of 840,000 yuan.
However, the four of them need to hand over 40% of the bonus to Guoping, while 20% is used to pay taxes, and the remaining 40% of the bonus is their own, so there are not many in the end.
After the game, fans also discussed the performance of the two finals, including Chen Meng who swept Sun Yingsha in the semi-final, but was reversed by Manyu Wang in the final. Naturally, there are certain reasons.
Among them, Liu Guozheng, a former national player who served as a commentator on the live broadcast platform, praised Manyu Wang for playing hard and being able to withstand the pressure. At the same time, it showed that Chen Meng’s current state fluctuated greatly, and the momentum in the face of Manyu Wang gradually collapsed, making it difficult to compete with Manyu Wang in the future.
According to the schedule, the next important task of Guoping is the World Table Tennis Championships. Chen Meng, Manyu Wang and Sun Yingsha are the most capable players to win the women’s singles championship. In men’s singles, Fan Zhendong, Wang Chuqin and Ma Long are the most competitive.
