The 4th game was crucial. MA took a 7-1 lead, but CHUAN caught him at 8-8 – and then the battle started. CHUAN had his first game point at 10-9. He had in total 8 game points before MA Lin won the game – 24-22!
Also in the 5th CHUAN had a game point, but he simply could not win the decisive points. MA levelled to 10-10 and went to 11-10.
MA’s first match point developed into a fantastic rally with CHUAN saving one impossible shot after the other, but at the end MA took the point – and the title.
