Latest Updates on Table Tennis Women’s Singles Gold, Silver & Bronze Medals Matches:
China’s Zhang Yining Vs China’s Wang Nan – World no. 1 Zhang Yining won the Gold Medal Match against World no. 3 Wang Nan. It’s a match of the best against the best.

Singapore’s Li Jiawei lost 1-4 against China’s Zhang Yining in the Table Tennis Women’s Singles Semi-Final in Beijing Olympic 2008. =( .
It’s definitely not a one-sided game against the World no. 1 Zhang Yining. Both Li Jiawei and Zhang Yi ning were showcasing their fantastic skills even under immensed pressure. Being a World no. 1 player isn’t at all times unbeatable, Li Jiawei won the first game and both scores from the players were close against each other.

Now, Singapore is aiming for another medal in Table Tennis Women’s Singles. Unfortunately, my favourite paddler Feng Tien wei has just lost to the World no. 1 Chinese paddler Zhang Yining in the Quarter Final. How I wish she would only take on this World no. 1 paddler in the Semi-Final or Final! Feng Tienwei has ever beaten Zhang Yining in an international tournament before, and her scores against Zhang Yining are in fact, very close.

Fortunately, the other more senior Singapore paddler Li Jiawei managed to enter the Women’s Singles Semi-Final. This time, she will take on Zhang Yining too! OMG! Zhang Yining is really a very powerful paddler and it’s not easy to defeat her. Nonetheless, we will cheer for Li Jiawei! =) “Live” telecast of Singapore’s Li Jiawei Vs China’s Zhang Yining at 10am on 22 August at Channel 5 (Singapore Time).
