At the just-concluded Table Tennis Korea Open, a pair of Japanese The mixed doubles combination Mizutani Hayabusa/Ito Mimako performed well just a few days after its establishment. First they won 3-1 the ace combination Lin Yunru/Zheng Yijing of the Chinese Taiwan team, and then they gave the Chinese national team's world champion Xu Xin/ Liu Shiwen caused a huge impact, and finally our side won by surprise.
In the upcoming Australian Open, Hayabusa Mizutani and Mima Ito will appear again as qualifiers to start a new round of challenges. It is worthy of the national table tennis to be careful!
Many old fans know that it’s not surprising that a dark horse suddenly appeared in the singles field. The battle between two people is very important. Unless the opponent's strength is also very poor, the temporary pairing of the two top singles players in the world may not be able to achieve good results.
But there is a situation. Except, that is that the two people really get along very well, and can complete unexpected cooperation with heart and soul. The reason why we have to be vigilant about the Mizutani/Mimai Ito combination is out of concern about this situation.
From the perspective of play,Mizutani Hayabusa is an athlete who is good at control and feel, while Ito Mima is a speed player. The two styles are very different. In terms of age, Mizutani Hayabusa was born in 1989 and is quite 11 years older than Ito Mima Years old, the two are not a generation at all.
No matter how you look at it, it is difficult to find a tacit understanding between the two of them, but the actual result is that the performance of the two is very good. This is indeed unexpected. The reason may be that they have been established since childhood. His relationship is deep, so this is the only way to compromise each other in doubles cooperation (this is very important, and friends who have participated in doubles matches should be able to experience it) and complement each other.
Mimai Ito was in Mizutani Hayabusa when she was very young fatherIt can be said that the training in the sports youth group founded by my parents was raised by the father and son Mizutani. So when she learned that she would match Mizutani Hayabusa in the Korean Open, she happily said that "I have always wanted to form a team (with Mizutani Hayabusa) since I was a child, and I am very happy to be able to achieve this time."
So even if the cooperation time is not long, the mutual familiarity between Hayabusa Mizutani and Mima Ito is no longer comparable to that of ordinary doubles partners. This is probably also important for their excellent performance in Korea. the reason. But will their status continue to be stable or is it a short-lived? This will take time to test.
As the Tokyo Olympics approaches, the world’s table tennis The team's competition in the mixed doubles field is becoming more and more intenseLie, the Chinese and Japanese teams have tested several new combinations recently. It seems that the most outstanding performance in the main match (that means that it is difficult to consider the two of Yoshimura Maharu and Moriyuan Masataka) Xu Xin/Liu Shiwen and Mizutani Hayabusa/Ito Mima are two pairs.
So who will you send to participate in the Olympics next year? Let's take a look at the results of this Australian game first!
