China dominates table-tennis right?! Look out China, German Dimitrij Ovtcharov is assured to be #1 in the world after winning his first match in the Grand Finals going on right now.

German coach Jorg Rosskopf was just voted Coach of the Year. German legend Timo Boll just won the T2APAC league men’s title defeating Ovtcharov in the final featuring the world’s best players and then was voted the 2017 Star Athlete of the Year. The year-end Grand Finals are going on right now and here’s the highlight point of Day 2 between Vladimir Samsonov and Wong Chun Ting.
