Amazing 10 years of Fan Zhendong

Amazing 10 years of Fan Zhendong

Time flies really fast, 10 years ago, there was a kid from China who was hitting every ball without caring anything and making every shot. Reverse pendulum serve and then starts with a crazy attack from both wings. That kid defeated everyone and is now the World no #1 in table tennis and one of the most amazing players world has seen in quite some time. Fan Zhendong is a legend and there is no doubt that Fan is an inspiration to many table tennis aspirants around the world.

It’s crazy to think that the 25 years old World Number #1 became a sensation at the age of 15 years. To be part of Chinese National Table Tennis team, you need to be really really strong. Imagine a 15 year old being part of the team where players like Wang Hao, Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Xu Xin, Wang Hao, Fang Bo were part of the lineup.
