  1. Lin Yun-Ju looks really promising. Saw him in Hong Kong, where the Taiwanese junior team gave China a real scare. Lin beat Xu Haidong, if I recall correctly, and in singles he played a pretty narrow match against Yang Shuo. Will be interesting to follow!

    1. Agree. He beat Xu Haidong and a close match with Xu Yingbin in the team finals. He stands near the table, playing his shots fast. There are a few promising players coming up from the Taiwanese junior team and I could see Chinese Taipei being one of the contenders to medal in the men's team competition, perhaps not 2018 but in the next few years.
