It is the first time for Chen Meng to encounter the situation of rotating serve. She said that although the referee's counting of the boards disturbed her rhythm, it was also a valuable accumulation of experience.
"The score in the third game has been stalemate. Suddenly, when the time comes to rotate the serve, my first ball referee called 1, and I thought it was a net. The referee would indeed interfere with counting the board, but it is also a new attempt to gain experience. , There will be more emergency preparedness in the future." Chen Meng said.
Regarding the ITTF Women’s World Cup to be held in Weihai in November, Chen Meng said that this is his first time to participate in the World Cup. He is very lucky to have this opportunity: "The championship will have doubles tomorrow.

Lin Gaoyuan/Liang Jingkun fought fiercely in the opening game. They had a slight advantage in strength and speed. They took the lead in winning the first game with 11:8.

In an interview after the game, Ma Long said, “In recent years, young athletes have had a lot of impact. The key to winning today’s game is that we communicated more and worked hard to find changes when we were behind by big or small scores. And these changes have also played a role. The cooperation between the two of us is not only a tacit understanding, but also try our best to seek breakthroughs in technical and tactical play. We have also learned a lot from young athletes."
Xu Xin’s view is the same as that of Ma Long. He also believes that he should learn more from young athletes: “I think it is indeed necessary to learn from young athletes. They are advanced in playing style, and we do not intend to eat our roots. To further strengthen the change of play style."
