Womens Table Tennis
Zhang (Palo Alto) at, World Championships
Date of competition: Monday, June 5, 2017
The ever exciting campaign of the 2017 US National Table Tennis Team has come to an end on Day 5 of the 2017 ITTF Liebherr World Table Tennis Championships. On Day 4 the mission towards singles success had been thwarted in the round of 32 men's and women's singles draws, but with significantly impressive performances by Lily Zhang and Kanak Jha.
For Zhang she had faced a very strong opposition in Li Jie of the Netherlands, one of the world's top defensive players but also with a lethal offensive game in her repertoire. Despite this, Lily Zhang looked ready for the challenge and played some outstanding points, at many occasions of the game putting Li under immense pressure. The end result would be 4-1 for the Dutch chopper and Lily Zhang's singles campaign would be over. Her greatest progress in the Women's Singles to date at a World Championship.
