ITTF Press Release
Bremen, Germany, 9 November 2003. With Timo BOLL hit by the flue and World Champion Werner SCHLAGER still struggling after his summer injury, the two best male players in the World at the moment, the Chinese WANG Liqin and MA Lin met in the final in the Menís Singles at the Volkswagen German Open in Bremen.
WANG was faster and knew exactly how to keep the ball on the table, so that MA could not finish the rallies too soon Ė normally he kills the ball immediately after the service.
WANG took the lead 2-0 but MA came back to take the 3rd. However the MA Lin from the World Cup was not in Bremen on Sunday. He was not as fast and as determined as usual and WANG took the next two games to take home the title and the 15.000 winnerís prize money.
