As my first post i would like to write about table tennis.
Michael Maze has withdrew from the upcoming WTTC 2011 in rotterdam because of a knee injury he has been suffering since last year. Last month Maze has played in the Volkswagen Cup in China and it could cause this withdrawal from the WTTC. If Maze wouldn’t play this tournament he would lost his direct qualification for the olympic games in 2012. Maze after the match with Wang Hao last month said to sporten.dk:
“I was forced to play. Otherwise, I’d have fell out of the world rankings and had lost my direct qualification for the Olympics in London”.
Maze has played only three matches this year and one match last year. Personally i’m sorry for this but at the same time i’m happy that Maze is looking forward the Olympics in 2012
